I recommend downloading, installing, updating, then running ALL of the free spyware removal tools from the links below.. (They DO NOT contain spyware.)
I recently downloaded something off the internet and I believe it has left it's mark on my computer.
Starting a couple days ago: Words on my internet browser (Random words. In my Hotmail messages, on this current page, etc.) become highlighted green and and underlined. They are a hyperlink that when I click on them a new window opens and more ads and windows open.
I am aware of spyware programs that'll scan a computer to remove these such things (??), but I'm not too sure about downloading one of them since the program itself could be a cause of spyware...
So, I'm using XP Home ed fyi...
If anyone can help me out, and if anyone is familiar with this exact issue, please could you help me out?
