unwanted links in my profile

    There is a link in my profile that I don't want there.  No one asked my permission to imbed their link in my profile.  I actually feel violated and insist that it be removed.  I don't know why it's there or who put it there, but I'm pissed!

      I hope you can get this fixed. At one time someone did this to my website. I just removed some html and got it out.

      It's unlikely anyone else has accessed your profile.  If they did, they'd probably do a lot more than just add one link!

      I can't see any link there either, but all you have to do is edit your profile to see whether it's there.

    Send a message to the HubPages team and see if they can sort it for you.

      I do not see where I can contact the team.  I must be blind.  Can you help out a blind man?

    There are zero links in your profile when I view it.  Can you provide a screen shot the rest of us what you are seeing?

      It's in "degree in criminal justice"

        I just looked and it's not hyperlinked

          I can clearly see it and when I put the cursor on it it shows as a link.  Maybe it's just my computer that's doing this if no one else can see it.  THX.

        I only see plain text there.  That's why I asked if you could produce a screen shot.  None of us are seeing anything.

          It probably has something to do with my computer since none of you can see it.  THX everyone.

    There is no link in the words "criminal justice" when i view your profile.  I see the words, but no link in them.

    Run Adaware/Malwarebytes/something like that. You probably have a virus that is adding ads to your browser.

      Len C.  I decided to restore my computer to an earlier date to see if that would fix the problem.  I think it did.  Thank you so much for the post!  big_smile
