Rogue redirect hyperlinks appearing on web pages

Hi

I am seeing redirect hyperlinks on web pages including my own website.  The links are not in the page code but are clearly placed there by some kind of malware (or worse) on my PC.  This started just days ago before I installed Norton for the first time. I wasn't running any other antivirus prog at the time.

A full system scan hasn't resolved the problem though other issues were found (which I wasn't aware of) and resolved.  I installed Norton Power Eraser but this found nothing.  The links are bright blue and pop-up ads appear when you move cursor over some of them.  Any web page is affected.  One has even now appeared in this post!

The only thing I've installed recently was a free file converter by Kyote Soft. Was hoping Norton could take care of something like this. Any ideas? 

Thanks

Ady

Hey, thanks for that.

Scrubbing my previous reply.  The add-on was Easy Inline, found to be run by Yontoo which was in my program list in Control Panel. Uninstalled this completely and all links have now gone.

Cheers:)
