Do You Get Posts With Yellow Lines Under Words?

Is it just my PC, or are some of you finding certain words become underlined with a yellow bar after downloading any page with text on it?

Hovering the cursor over such a word brings up the link hand, although I don't want to click over the link in case it's a virus or something similar.

Words such as 'profit', 'capital', 'savings' and then random words such as 'anthrax' are all underlined with this enigmatic yellow bar.

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH MY COMPUTER? Help.......someone.

Cheers

It is a type of advertising, companies are paying to have those words link to what they want. It is caused by you downloading a program, usually free, that also puts this software on your computer. I have never seen it, only heard people bitch about it, so I can't tell you how to get rid of it. But it is a borderline virus and hard to get rid of. Search the internet with something like http://www.google.com for instructions how to get rid of it. Entire websites exist on how to get rid of it, so it shouldn't be hard to find.

The only yellow bar I've ever seen is this:
