When I type in hotmail.com on my browser and then hit enter, this line always comes up..you'll see it around the email address for example. And this dash line stuff keeps appearing on any buttons I select. Like when I click on "inbox" button..any buttons. And after I click on the reply button, it comes up right below the toolbar where it says Bold,Italic,Underline etc.This line appears and then disappears after few seconds or a min. And then when I open a new browser,it does the same thing again, this appears and does the same. This just happends when I type in hotmail.com in the browser and when I type in yahoo or msn, and when I goto hotmail from msn, it's not doing that..I just noticed this is happening recently. Do you think it might be a spyware or do you think I shouldn't really worry about it? I already ran my antivirus and also did a scan on Ad-Aware but it didn't detect anything.

This is normal behaviour. You get the dashes around the item you want then if you press Enter it does the same job as if you'd left-clicked on it with the mouse.

Oh okay..because this haven't happened in the past before and the dash line around my email address, i didn't even click on it..it just appeared when i typed hotmail.com and then hit enter on my keyboard..and also,after I click on the reply button on hotmail, that line shows right under the toolbar where it says bold,italic,underline etc. even though i didn't even click on the message area where I write a message yet.. and then those things goes away after few seconds or a min. I noticed about it after I updated my AIM messenger recently..this dash line stuff also appears on the AIM messenger..when I click on someone's screen name who's online for example.. This isn't happening on my other computer though..like what it's happening on the screen shot pictures I posted.Alright, so then I shouldn't really worry about it then.
