Silly question here - I think the problem might be an infection on my PC, but I want to make sure. I opened HP this morning and when I checked my comments, there were many in-text ad links.
Here is a screenshot:
The ads claim they are from ssurrfkeepit. I just want to make sure this is only affecting me vs. the site!
I'm using Google Chrome.
You got a plugin on chrome that's doing that. Just go to settings>extensions and get rid of the ones you don't require.
You can go to this free site, download the free tool, and it will clean out the malware. It's perfectly safe and I use this scan several times a day. This will put the icon on your computer and you can just start the scan whenever you want to.
Or, you can simply restore your computer to an earlier date before you noticed the malware:
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
HP should definitely hire you. Every time that you post a piece of advice/suggestion it turns out for the best. I just used the Superantispyware and cleaned my PC (Over 476 threats no less!)
Thanks Writer Fox!
It's you and your computer. HubPages does not have in-text ads on the site anymore.
Well I don't have this problem... can't speak for anyone else...
Another good scan and clean program is MalwareBytes - (http://www.malwarebytes.org/) - I use it in conjunction with SuperAntispyware - sometimes one will catch malware the other misses! I like the "belt and suspenders" approach...
Thanks, everyone! Glad to know it is just my computer. Scanning and cleaning now!

Not long ago my security software ran out, and I wasn't sure which one I wanted to go with. While I was deciding a friend recommended at least installing MalWarebytes (which is free) in the meantime. Sorry...

I have noticed links within the text in many forums, on many of my own hubs as well as those of others, and pop up adds / surveys. The links include the names of many authors and staff. Is this something new? I know I...

These are words that I did not add as a link and I am seeing them also in other people's hubs today. I just published a new hub and then when I could not eliminate those links, unpublished it. Is this some...
