It's your browser. I'd run a spyware remover if I were you.

Yea no adds or popups on this site, only thing you might get from here is a little popup that lets you know if you have a new Private Message and asks you if you want to open it in a new tab/window or not...

I've seen that one before. This is random words highlighted in green with little scroll over ads. After I posted this, I started noticing them on a few other sites.

I've seen stuff like that on news articles on Yahoo and MSN...  Do you have Windows Live or something like that installed on your computer?

No...unless it came with the computer and I've turned it on without realizing it.
