Strange uncontrollable links appearing???

Is it just me... or do some words suddenly appear in hyperlink blue (or double uderlined) and start taking you to off websites?



Maybe it's this PC I am on right now but...????

I don't see this at home on my Mac, it only happens on my PC at work.
eek So now I do think it's a virus. The sites are not xxx - but they are commerical sites.

Ugh.
