    Morning Ray,

    Nothing to do with this forum. From a quick google it's a browser plugin, which seems to get installed without the users knowledge. Most likely installed with something else, which is an annoying thing which is becoming more and more common.

    I can post some instructions on how to remove/disable it, but will need to know which browser you are using. Seems to be be causing a lot of annoyance in general.

    Here's one bunch of upset people who ended up with it without warning... http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20121114101917AAjXWXc

    Cheers, Gary
