Default Underlined words and popups.

My computer has pop ups that are related to underlined words. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? A better question I guess is how do I get rid of them? Any help very appreciated.

Beyond the aspects discussed in the article, it may be that your computer is infected too. Run a full anti-virus/malware scan.

Did what? Download Malwarebytes, update it, run it and remove everything it finds.
