Run a malware check - Malware Bytes is good - to get rid of it.

Its a PITA.

this happened a while ago. It was a MN HQ thing...I forget the correct term but people were posting say about Marks and Spencer and it would automatically turn it into a link to their website

I've posted about this before. When I had this it was something called Text Enhance. It wasn't removed by running any security on my computer.

I googled it and then followed the instructions on how to manually remove it.

I haven't had a problem since.

Here's a link that might help, although there are plenty about.

Hope it gets cleared up.

Hope it's sorted for you.

I think I acquired it when I was watching something on line and had downloaded something so I could watch it.
