I have a recipe web page (Coleen's Recipes) that I post to about once a week. I noticed that some of the words (in the published page) looked like links that I didn't put there. When you click on those words, it takes you to some web site I've never heard of before. If you just hover your mouse over the uninvited link words, it says powered by text-enhance. I ran virus protection and it said I was ok, I then cleared out my cookie cache and the uninvited links disappeared. How can I stop this text-enhance thing from attaching itself to my web page in the first place? Thanks for your help.

I don't see any strange links on your site so I expect you have picked up some adware on your PC.

Download OTL from
http://www.geekstogo...timers-list-it/
and Save it to your desktop.

Run OTL (Vista or Win 7 => right click and Run As Administrator)

select the All option in the Extra Registry group then Run Scan.

You should get two logs. Please copy and paste both of them.

I did as you suggested and when it started to download my Norton Antivirus popped up saying the file was a threat called backdoor.graybird and it cancelled the download.

Norton said the file was unsafe.

There is nothing wrong with it. I just checked it on virustotal.com and while Norton does flag it, Kaspersky, ESET, Bitdefender, Avast, Avira and AVG do not. Tell Norton to ignore it.
