    Simple community website/text hijacked?

    An amateur, I maintain a simple website for a community association with WebPlus on my home PC. No problems with the document or uploading from my PC. No problem on home page when I access the website from my PC via IE, Firefox or Chrome.
    I am told by someone viewing the home page on the CA office PC that the text "Fostering" appears in capital letters and has become a link to a fostering website. Tesco often pops up as well. It sounds to me like a downloaded app with malware on that PC.
    I will check the blogs on this forum on malware removal apps when I have seen the affected page but meantime, if anyone has any useful information I would be grateful and will pass it on.

    As you can view the site correctly it is likely to be an infected PC. Suggest the person experiencing the problem tries another PC.

    cheers, Paul

    PaulT, I read something long ago that malware can also appear to the browser person as an "overlay." pop-up, web-bug, etc. Now a web-bug would be inside the html, that definitely cannot be happening here. Most likely, certain viewers, having similar malware, will experience overlays or popups that appear to be partNparcel of the html set.
