Hello. I have a question to ask you.
I just started using the less popular web browser called Maxthon (version 3.1). I am running it on Windows 7 64-bit operating system.
Now, I get a message in the bottom left corner of the Maxthon interface that displays informative messages like instructional links for Maxthon browser, but also written linked ads as well. It rotates ads when I open this browser as long as your mouse pointer is not on a link on a webpage, then the link for whatever the pointer is pointing at will show in the status bar. Please see the attached image clipping below in this post. The attached image clipping is while the mouse pointer is not pointing at no webpage links.
1. Are these written linked message ads spyware (or any kind of malware) in any way, shape or form other than adware whether or not you actually click on this link?
2. Can these written linked message ads in some way be removed from Maxthon web browser? I have been doing some snooping around (checking out) the browser settings and interface and I do not see any means relating to these written lined ads.
