Random links showing up in my posts

  1. Random links are showing up on my husband's laptop. On my desktop, everything is fine. I asked 3 other people to check my blog, and they didn't see any links that shouldn't be there.

    I did a complete virus scan and cleared all browsing history on the laptop, everything is fine, but the links still show.

    Example: http://cravingthis.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1677&action=edit

    Where it says: 4. Add shanks one at a time

    The word "add" is appearing as a hyperlink to a spam notice.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is cravingthis.wordpress.com.

  2. We can't see posts that are still in Preview, but we have had lots of reports of random links being inserted by people's browsers. Are you using any browser add-ons or plug-ins? If you are, please disable them and see if the links still show.

  3. Whew .... found the problem.

    I could not find the extension to delete it so I deleted google chrome all together, and problem resolved!

    Hope this helps someone else with a similar problem.

  4. Thanks for reporting the specifics. We've never known what was doing this.

  5. Thanks for the link - how scary!
