Recently on my webpages (only in Google Chrome) there are some hyperlinks with double underline on some key words, if i hover my cursor over that text it shows some advertisements. I think its some sort of add-in which I seem to have got automatically. Does anyone have any clue how to get rid of it? Its very annoying when you are reading something.

Thanks in advance!

You stated that it's happening on your webpages. By that do you mean web pages that you designed and are paying for or just those that you're browsing?

The ads may be showing up automatically in Google Chrome. The same thing will occur if you browse through these forums as a guest. The only thing I can suggest is to use another browser if it's annoying.

Regards.

Are they clicksor ads? Because I think some websites are paid to have those on some pages, so there is nothing you can do about it.
