What is this new advertising I see in threads -- some words look like links but when I hover the mouse over them an advertisement pops up.

Huh??? Can you take a screenshot?

Not seeing them here at all, but the screenshot suggests they are of the IntelliTxt type which I thought DaniWeb had dumped yonks ago now.

Do you have graphical ads disabled under your control panel AD?

Not for me, maybe some malware on your machine, AD?
I havent seen IntelliTxt on daniweb since i was new here...

I think I got rid of it, apparently was something I installed yesterday that caused it.
