hostile add-on that underlines random words and activates an ad-popup when selected. How do I get rid of it??

Posted

Random words are double underlined in the text presented on a page. When touched with the mouse a pop-up windows for 'Play SUSHI' appears and the original function related to the word is blocked.

Chosen solution

You should be able to remove it from the Windows control panel.

  • From the Start menu, select Control Panel
  • Open the list of installed programs:
    • If in icon view, click Programs and Features
    • If in category view, under "Programs", click Uninstall a program
  • In the list of programs look for a program called PlaySushi or TextLinks, click on it to select it and then click Uninstall.
