    Since arriving at a campsite in "Tariva"....

    The site internet is pretty good,,,, so I didn`t tune the dish in,,,, cos the others are watching sky TV...

    Now if I write some thing and include money,, Win or Bet...

    I get a little green square over that word with a green arrow pointing out of the top right hand corner... these emblems are the same size as my normal lettering...

    If I hover the curser over them an advert for some gambling/Casino and play on line gambling games come up...

    I have not opened any and there is a cross in the corner of each one which seems to close the add till I inadvertently run the curser over..

    Also,,, either Fun or RVOC.... when you click on a thread... usually it comes up the top what thread I am looking at.... but now every time it is a number and not the title of the thread...

    Have I been got at...??????? :cry::Angry:


    PS... I have just previewed this thread and the green square is over the words Win & Casino, which II have used in this write up....

    Can you see them... ?

    No, could it be some form of advertising from the site wifi you are on?

    Looks like it.

    Don't know what browser you are on but look in the settings for addons.

    Do you have malwarebytes ?

    two possibilities.

    1) your computer got infected. Try rolling back using I think they are called check points? Sorry no windows computer to hand.

    2) The site wifi has an ad inserting proxy installed. In which case the only way round that is to use a VPN to get rid of them.

    instal malwarebytes and run it to remove infections. then set it to load with windows to protect you in future
