:scratchhead: On my computer i found that.... any time a web page open ((( any web page ))) that will have the word ((( DISCOVER ))) in any text on any page, it will change to a ((( LINK ))) with a different color that will take me to


then it will redirect me to Discover card web site, no matter where this word will appear on any page ...on any web site

I also realized the the word ((( Hotels ))) and ((( Mortgages ))) will do the same thing on any web site and on any page and it will redirect me to www.expedia.com and www.eloans.com respectivly

I believe that this is some kind of a marketting / promotional code that has been place on my computer ....

I tried to trace the origin of the problem by placing the word (( discover )) on some web sites that i created and still getting the same result on my computer.

please advice the possibility of removing this unwanted functionality from my PC.it is really very disturbing ...

No virus scanner or spyware was able to detect this virus / trojan ...NONE

thank you ...please help

Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
