Default Strange hyperlinks on IE webpages


hi,

I have IE 6, sp 2 installed on win XP machine and here's the problem...

When i load asp.net pages (via IIS), for certain texts it adds a hyperlink.
Ex: If I have the words like BOTTOM, BOTTLE etc... on my page, where ever
the string "BOT" appears it would add a hyperlink and it points to some
website that i'm not familiar with. This is not limited to "BOT" but there
are some other character combinations too which will point to various
websites.
Note: I havent added any hyperlinks to the webpage, but these are getting
added automatically.

But when you view the source of the HTML generated, there's no hyperlink
tags.

I also noted this happens only when you request the webpage through IIS. ie.
If i save the above webpage on to the hard disk as an htm file and try to
view it, then I dont see any hyperlinks and no problems at all...

This behavior in turn causes number of other problems such as client side
scripting to malfunction, IE to get stuck etc...

Anybody have any idea???
