hypertext appearing in documents leading to ads

Hi everybody, I fear my laptop has been infected with some kind of bug that create some hypertexts in on line documents. They lead to ads pop-ups in french or flamish. As I do live in Belgium I guess the program must be able to adapt ads pop-ups to the IP of the computer holding the bug. I think that this is why my computer is extremely low in processing the commands and in surfing the net. Any suggestion about what to look at to find the bug and kill it? many thanks in advance fabrizio

It's normal advertising, certain keywords trigger an advert to be created within the text. More info about this on these other two pca forum threads. Thread One and here's Thread Two
