I have no idea why you have yellow links. Did you install some software on your computer that is maybe turning regular text into links? Like smart text or something? I can assure you that those are not really links and I believe something on your end is causing this.

That's an XP thing. I'm trying to remember what it is, but it converts keywords to hypertext links for advertaizing purposes. I know there's a way to turn it off, and I remember that being talked about here somewhere, but can't seem to remember the details of it. I'm pretty sure UNFLUX would know. Let me see what I can dig up.

Mysearchbar? or MyWay? That rings a bell -- I know I've removed a ton of adware from computers and am positive I've read about that and it does what you showed but it only affects XP. I'm looking for it, but in the mean time run Spyware S&D or Adaware -- and nix whatever comes up -- or simply uninstall the new searchbar from add/remove programs.

I know it's adware -- but I can't put my finger on it.
