    Underline text is an ad

    Noticed when browsing, even on here, that some words are underlined. Put the cursor on the word and an ad pops up. Anybody know how to get rid of this?

    My son's laptop had a bit of malware that caused this.

    I forget what it was called, but it was easy to remove.

    It just picks words, typically brand names and stuff.

    Found it, a program called Coupon Companion got installed. Not sure it is malware so one of them didn't catch it. Just did an uninstall, it's gone.
