    Every time I type in a search, I can see my results list--and then it suddenly drops below a long list of unrelated links.

    Every time I open the JC forums, a pop up window appears with some annoying video.

    And at the bottom of my Chrome browser, ads intermittently appear. WTH.

    I'm running spyware and virus checks regularly so it must be an issue with Google taking on a more aggressive ad campaign?

    No ads, but your account has been hacked and is posting spam threads.

    The old spinsters in Comms have been sitting there waiting for a task like this and you bring it here... smh

    Sounds like you've installed a 3rd party piece of crapware. It's easily done, bundled with java and the like.
