    I just published a post, and two links that I didn’t link popped up in orange. They aren’t applicable to the post and really detract from what I wrote. Is this some kind of advertising that I have to put up with, or did something go “tilt”??? What are my options? Please advise!

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

    WordPress does not use text-enhanced ads. This has come up before and it was caused by browser extension that was installed in the person’s browser. http://wafflesatnoon.com/2011/10/05/seeing-unwanted-text-enhance-ads/

    Deactivate all browser add-ons and extentions, run a full computer scan, and then log into your blog again without activating any browser add-ons or extensions and see if the links disappear or not.

    Thank you for your quick response. I’ll give it a try. It’s good to know the orange links are self-activated and do not show for everyone. I downloaded a game from the aarp site a few days ago and my ‘puter has been obnoxious ever since. Maybe the change was part of that package. Thanks again for your help.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if that is the culprit.

    The program from AARP was the culprit. Once I un-installed that program, everything returned normal. Lesson learned! Thank you so much for your assistance!
