When I went to edit one of my hubs, I found a lot of words highlighted with in-text ads. I am wondering if they are from the Hubpage Ad Program or if someone is getting into my account. I have no problem if it is Hubpage ads, but I don't want someone else doing it. Thanks Barb
I just edited some hubs. No in-text ads.
What you are describing is a common malware symptom. Not HP, but your computer.
As @paradigmsearch said, this is most likely malware as we do not use in-line ads.
Many times with Chrome, it is a result of a browser plug-in that is injecting hyperlinks in web content that does not have it.
You can find info here about disabling plug-ins:

If digging into your browser plug-ins seems like too big of a task, you can also uninstall and reinstall the browser and that should remove any plug-ins you installed that are not included with the browser.

I have looked through my own hubs as well as hubs from other people and there are no ads to be seen whatsoever in the place where they supposedly should be displayed, and that is somewhere around the right margin of...
