Does anyone know where these imbedded popup boxes are coming from? Recently in any browser I use I get what looks like a highlighted link in the text, and if you mouse over the highlighted text you get a popup ad. I don't know how they got there but I find them VERY annoying. Any way to get rid of them?

A browser with AdBlock or NoScript should do the trick.

Thanks, Added Adblock to all my browsers now we'll see if it works. Well AdBlock didn't work but NoScript did
