Most of the time it is part  of a word. Even on this forum. Noticed the same with the word "date", "line", "meet",ext. Will have to stop going on any forums if I want o avoid it untill problem sorted. Thx for the links JD & LimL.

The other remedy is to stop surfing forums which happen to mention sex.  This also has the advantage of preventing eventual blindness... J

Nasty spyware.  Google "spyware" to find some resources on how to deal with this.  Some solutions are free but the more comprehensive ones have to be paid for.

Hi,A friend of mine had exactly the same problem recently, and it turned out to be something called "Begin2Search". You should download and install both [url="http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/"]Ad-Aware[/url] and [url="http://security.kolla.de/"]Spybot[/url] - that should get rid of it (and similar nasties).Both of these are free - do not pay any money for other spyware removal software.Also, you should think about switching to another browser (e.g. [url="http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/"]Firefox[/url], which gets 5 stars and a user rating of 96% on download.com).
