Hi there

When I open webpages, some words are underlined twice and if you hover over it says Easy Inline at the top with an ad and a link to a website. I've run my Norton Antivirus and Kapersky virus and am unable to get rid of this. It's happened before and I got rid of it but can't remember how and google isn't help me. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks original.gif

You could try doing a reset. I had a really nasty little virus a while back...nothing worked. So in desperation, I reset my computer to before I picked up the virus. To my surprise it actually worked... or it's now just hiding, biding it's time...

It appears you may have inadvertently downloaded an add-on. This link has information on how you can uninstall Easy Inline.

If that doesn't work, you could, as Livsh mentioned, try a system restore to a date prior to having this problem. That won't affect your personal files and is reversible, if you change your mind. These links from Microsoft might help with that, depending on what operating system you have.
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7

Hope you are able to sort it out soon.

Thanks everyone, was able to remove it but it is appearing in my tab at the top "this website wants to run an addon and the name" but I'm just ignoring it.

Hi everyone,

I just had the same problem, for any weblinks they were double underlined and if I hoovered over any of them an easyinline advert appeared, if I clicked any of them they sent me to an advert page.

This is easy to get rid of, if you are using Chrome, just go to the settings box in the top right hand corner of your webpage (the symbol with the wrench on it), scroll down to 'tools' then 'Extensions' and disable the one named 'Fastsave'. Restart you browser and you should be good to go!

Good luck!
