    search for: ???

    okay, so in som posts, I'm seeing some words that are double underlines, and when I mouse over them, there's a little hover window and my window status says SEARCH FOR: (whatever was underlined)

    what is this?

    Sounds like you've downloaded adware onto your computer. Do you have an adware blocker/remover? My ISP gives their users Spy Sweeper for free. I think it's really good.

    You can download a free trial (which I suggest if you don't have something).


    Here is the main website to download from.

    my brother totally messed up my laptop (wherever he went) caused my popup blobker to break down, and whatever sites they were, I got a ton of spyware. The popups downloaded more spyware, and I ended up having to re install windoes
