how do i remove "ads by coupon drop down" from my browser? i never installed it and it is not an add-on. it is not in my add/remove programs list either.

Posted

also, there are always unlined text throughout all the web pages i visit, that allows an ad to show up to be clicked on if the mouse is placed on the underlined word.
