Default Solution was only temporary...

Hello Paul, Will & Everyone,

Well, that solution I suggested only lasted a short time for me - those irritating highlighted words are back as also are the annoying pop-ups, probably because I have since run my virus checker and cleared my cookies and other internet history.

I am, as requested, enclosing a screenshot image - taken just a couple of minutes ago when I was indeed logged in to TE (as I am now) - and it's of part of a page of critiques. You will see that four random words in the text are highlighted in green with arrows beside them. If I move my mouse pointer over those highlighted words, a pop-up box appears from AdChoices - the same irritating box with a picture of an aeroplane which pops up over any of those highlighted words.

Whether this is a virus threat, a phishing threat or no threat at all, it is nonetheless intensely irritating and certainly severely reduces any enjoyment of what was previously an excellent site.

Kind Regards,
