Hi Colinvansmith,


I suspect that you don't actually have an infection... but rather you have some "add-ons" installed in your browser that are producing the result you see.


Most of the helpers in this section are less than conversant with ubuntu.  Therefore I suggest that you post in the Open Source forum and one of the Linux guys should be able to guide you.
