Well, it happens on EVERY page I browse, including this one:https://adblockplus.org/forum/index.php
I've scanned my PC with avast! and Super Antispyware Professional, and both report my PC as clean (both have fully up to date definitions, BTW). There is definitely no AdBrite process running here either, according to Task Manager. And again if it helps, I'm running XP SP3 fully up to date with all patches applied.
If it makes a difference, I'm using Iron browser, not Google Chrome (I don't like being spied on!). By switching off all Extensions (I don't use many) and re-enabling one-by-one, it's definitely re-enabling ABP which causes this weird problem. I've also confirmed it by enabling all Extensions, then disabling only ABP, which makes the HTML injection stop.
And to repeat: if I View page source, no sign of this extra style tag containing AdBrite (just before the closing HTML tag, incidentally, regardless of the page). The injected stuff ONLY shows up if I save a page, or if I do Inspect element.
I haven't yet tried clearing my cache (which usually loses me some info I need to keep, and which is a pain to re-enter); but unless there's some subtle hack (maybe by "the spammer?") going on here that's parking code somewhere in the cache which then gets picked up by an Inspect element or Save page action, I couldn't see necessarily how that would work.
Thanks for looking into this; it's got me baffled!
