Unhappy Green advertising

Hi,

What is going on with the green advertising? Everytime I type Cash's name it seems like it ends up with a green underline. How do we stop it?

Hi!

It sounds like your 'spell check' is not recognizing the context or capitalization of "Cash", does is show up when you are writing a post, but not ON the post? If so, just go to your spell check and add "Cash" and it will stop.

Go to MS Word or Pages and type "Cash" and then type "I will pay with cash" and see if it underlines both or just the capitalized one, if it just underlines the first (name) one, add "Cash" with a capital letter.

It sounds like a function in your browser or a tool that has been downloaded. I had that happen after I downloaded something like the Yahoo! toolbar (I don't remember exactly which item it was) and it had a bunch of spyware and stuff bundled to it. It was a pain to remove.

If I recall correctly, the underlined words would take you to a search online for a similar item if you clicked on them. What happens when you click on "Cash"?

Apparently I am the only one seeing the green double underline. I am also hearing voices should I be worried? When I click on or put my cursor over the word Cash it directs me to a Gamevance site where I can be entered to win $5000. every hour!

Maybe I should enter..... $5000- I could be well on my way to my next Hav or two!

Sharon, it sounds like your computer could be infected or have some spyware that's gotten installed. Do you have a virus cleaner? You can try PC Doctor for free or Ad Aware. That might help. Let us know if you win the $5K though.

Doh! If you win 5k I want it on my computer but some of my long lost relatives are sending me millions, so maybe I don't need it!

I guess I missed my big chance now it is offering me free groceries and insurance quotes. Hmm free groceries I could use that savings to buy another Hav.

This is why you get a Mac and don't have to deal with things like Spyware detectors, Adblocks and Antivirus software.
