    Default Text changed to hyperlink for ads? Forum hack or money generator?

    Well my posts are getting hyperlinks added to the text to show ads.

    No problem with it as long as it is legit?
    Your lack of healing amp not my problem. Please buy and use your own remove curse pots in combat, so I don't waste mana. Not my job.

    It sounds like you have picked up a virus. Better get that sorted.

    I believe that may be adware.

    Yeah, i have had that before. It sucks.

    http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-text-enhance/ Try that maybe.

    Funny thing is, after i had it, i went and checked out the webpage for the company that produces this "product". They claimed that thier "non-intrusive" advertising service generated increased sales and brand awareness. Well, for me it generated awareness all right, but more to the tune of "any company who would willingly use such an underhanded method of advertising will never see my money"

    The fact that this somewhat professional looking website offers this "product", and seems to do so without qualms is indicative to me of the sort of ruthless scum that abound in the business world... tried to send them hate-mail, but they didn't have a contact email on the site...

    Whenever I get something like this, it's usually included with a toolbar that I accidentally agreed to download while downloading something else. Malwarebytes should take care of it for you.

    Probably the HWmonitor I downloaded.

    Cinema##

    And it had the familiar green download button to re download it. Must have been a miss click.

    Control panel uninstall seems to gotten rid of it.
    Scanning also.

    Server population is down, so I was thinking for a sec this might have been a forum change to generate money for Turbine, lol.

    The inferno of flaming rage that would sweep these forums would be truly epic
    I would still like to see... Something that tests character versatility and player adaptability rather than character focus strength and quest knowledge.
    I play the quests for the content of the quests not just as an XP/min merry-go-round.
    Actual play experience is worth infinitely more than theorycrafting...

    Make sure you also check your browser add ons for it as well or it may come back.
