I should add that I had them too for a while. I can't remember now exactly, but it seemed to be more on my work computer than at home.

I recall one word that appeared often on pages being green, underlined and clickable: Lenders !! I didn't click on it just moused over and a little square opened up with some text about loans or something.

Feel like it hasn't happened for a few weeks but if I notice it again I'll get a screencap.

It happened to me again on Friday, but not today. Any word will do, so I don't think Lenders has anything to do with it

Kat that makes perfect sense if the ads were about a loan "Lenders" would fit right in!

Re: What is EasyInline Ads?

I still think this is stuff installed on local machines - I'm not seeing this in any of my browsers and there's still only a handful of reports on this.

Re: What is EasyInline Ads?

I can report that I haven't seen any more of these myself.

Re: What is EasyInline Ads?

Finally these came back on my computer (at work). Managed some screen captures.

The first is the word, in green font, double underlined. The second was very hard to screencapture because it only lasts a couple of seconds when you hover your mouse pointer over the word (I didn't click it, no need to, it seems.)

It's not letting me upload the third screen cap because of the size of the image. I'll try in a new post, or if that fails I'll upload it to tinypic...

The third is the pop-over ad (not sure if that's the right term) that covered up MTF completely on the screen (though you can close it by clicking the "X" in the top right corner.

Re: What is EasyInline Ads?

As I said this is my MAC computer at work, so I don't know much about it. I don't "maintain" these computers -- we have I.T. guys for that. I don't know if anything could have "installed itself" here because we have limited user privileges and anytime we want to install something or even upgrade the browser to a new version, we are prompted to enter an administrator password (which only the I.T. guys have). Though I'm sure there are ways to get around that safeguard.

Re: What is EasyInline Ads?

This is not a pop up but it "floated" across my screen and stayed for about 10-15 seconds. It happened a few times (the same ad) and I only reported it now because I am quite sure this only happens when I'm on MTF and after a page is loaded.

No. That's not normal. If you see it again, can you also post the URL.

Thanks.

I don't know how to find the URL. I have another one today and I tried to find it's property by right clicking on my mouse (I use I/E 10 here). It runs flash player and I had warning by McAfee.
