    I dont know about anyone else, but periodically im running across words links to ads. They're disguised and tricky. I thought we payed membership to be "add free"? No?

    That sounds odd. Where exactly are seeing the ads (which pages and where on the page)?

    If you scroll across any of the double-underlined words, an add pops up. They're in status bars or even in messages that you recieve. There's one in the posting guidelines as Im typing this now. Is that a browser thing or and RHP thing?

    Same here. I don't have any ads when in RHP.

    You should scan your computer for unwanted malware.

    If it's double underline words with pop-ups then it's more than likely to be a plugin for your browser. Are you using Internet Explorer?

    He probably doesn't understand FF, let alone have any malware / anti-virus software. Someone needs to walk him through it.

    ran malwarebites and it got it.

    Thanks to all for the malicious attacks on my intellect and moral standards. They were a great help.
