    Looks interesting. Ye, as other have said above it looks like a virus or something.

    I sometimes get footer ads appearing on some pages where I haven't seen them before, sometimes my own sites. This is due to a Page Rank add-on I have in chrome. It's quite random.

    Never experienced such things. It may be some adware, in that case also it should show up on every website. Interesting!

    It's not bhw, and it's not a virus. Its just a shopper app in chrome that you installed whenever you downloaded something.

    It's malware. Go use your desktop, open a PDF or something and try to see if you can see these ads there. Some malware affects text outside of the browser, so try to identify what it is, or just get superantispyware, that'll do the trick.

    BHW would never use infolinks (I'm certain)

    You should get the free malwarebytes and clean your machine, I believe you're infected with adware.

    Google "
    malwarebytes" and get the free download - works like a charm
