Using Firefox.
Just logged onto Trade Me and found random?? words underlined and highlighted in blue. These are links of some sort. When I hover the mouse over them an ad box pops up.
The same thing is also happening on this site.
Hovering also brings a box saying "By Coupon Drop down" over the advertisement.

Maybe you got infected with some Adware? Try running scan with Spybot and such

Someone may have installed a program that installed it. See if its in add/remove programs. Or programs and features. Depending on the OS

Yep, you need to do some serious work on this. This is a known adware POS so google coupondropdown and check methods of removal.

Check your addons for anything not familiar to you - "savesales 3" is one ext name it uses, but there are probably others - remove/delete if there.

These are called "text enhance" (had it once myself quite a while ago)

and use cc or something to clean out your internet cache files etc at the same time

Did someone install Utorrent recently?? Unless you decline to one of its installs, it installs Download coupon, dropcoupon or something. It sounds like the program you're talking about

I have got the same thing in the settings in Gargoyle in my router. Mind you ,I have found a few nasties on the OS(gone now).
