    There's still some spam bombarding my system

    I guess that I spoke too soon in saying that my problems were over. I had managed to get rid of a nasty browser hijacker calling itself webssearches, but there is still more trash infesting my system. When I open documents on the Net, they are festooned with words colored blue and double-underlined. Passing a curser over them brings a pop-up with more trash. Anyone have this problem before? How did you get rid of it?

    Thanks for your time.

    What documents are you refering to? Web sites?

    On some sites these are normal advertisement and they are seriously anoying because
    one has to go out of his way to avoud passing the cursor over them.
