If you're using Chrome - Have any of you noticed lately that they are hijacking posts and words on the Forum page with links of all kinds - usually about jobs and finance. I can't find a way to get rid of it. They are all mouse-over pop-ups. :help:

Ken, you have a computee virus or a rogue plugin in your browser.

Most likely an addon toolbar...

Dennis - I found it was the result of a "World Clock" Extension I use for my global business. It's been disabled and the issue is solved.

Thanks for your reply.

Wow, a simple clock program did that? That is not good for Google letting that slip by.

I am always leery about plugins until I read the reviews of the app and try to weed out the "hype" and "self-promotion" from the legit reviews; that can be difficult.

This must have been the one you added: World Clocks by clock6.com?

Nice try with "Nav-Links" Ad. You didn't asks about this feature to us and add this shameful ad sneaky. I'm removing "World Clocks"

Sounds like they slipped that one in on you and many others... shameful.

I just checked the website for that extension and sure enough it was clock6 - google extension. I've been using this extension for a long-time - they must have just changed it to input the Nav-Links as this just started last week.
