    I am seeing either a twitter insignia all over BYC or some new chick by all the links. It is slowing my computer down horribly. What's the deal?

    Hmm... I don't see anything different on my screen. Can you take a screenshot so we can review it?

    Anybody else seeing anything like this that wasn't there before?

    I don't see anything unusual. Maybe it is a virus on your computer?

    OK-My DH says to run Advanced System Care (the free version of it) and clean up your computer. He says to try to get rid of all the extra stuff on your computer.

    He says it could be an advertisement for Twitter gone awry or it could be spyware gone haywire. It could be an honest mistake on the part of Twitter (he says Twitter won't help) or it could be someone's spyware.

    He says that just because you are running Norton, it doesn't mean it is not a virus.
