    Double Underlined Words Pop Up Adds


    Hello
    Almost every where I go on the net viewing text I see double underlined words and when the mouse cursor hits them an add pops up. It is annoying but I can avoid it by not touching them with the mouse. This just started recently and it's getting worse. I wonder if there is a way to get rid of it short of doing a system restore point?
    Thanks

    A system restore won't eliminate the double underlines in some web pages. They are inserted by the web page itself and are links to advertising. Intelltxt is one source of these ads. You can stop this by restricting access to those sites. Search the web for "double underline text" for solutions. An ad blocker in Edge eliminates the double underline links too.

    Probably picked up some adware somewhere. If so, a scan with AdwCleaner should find and eliminate it.
