Thanks for the feedback especially regarding MBAM. I had been having a problem for about 3 weeks whereas I went from my portal page (Mymyway.com)to pages of interest and found certain words were highlighted in green with a double underline beneath it. If I hover over some of the green words a bubble would appear with a advertisement in it. On some other green words hovering did not cause a bubble to appear but clicking on it would take me to a advertisement. Neither Counterspy or Avast found the problem over the 3 week period. MBAM fixed it! Yippee!
I am keeping MBAM in my arsenal!
