Random words appearing on transparent images? Just started doing this and I don't know why!

So all of the sudden when I open an image there is random white text on the background. They were fine yesterday when I was using them. I don't know how to get rid of it. I tried erasing but they come right back.

What does the text say?

Could you please post a screenshot taken at View > 100% and with the pertinent Panels (Layers, Channels, Options Bar, ...) visible? 

Does turning off »Use Graphics Processor« in the Performance Preferences (Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Graphic Processor Settings) and restarting Photoshop have any bearing on the issue? 

What have you done for trouble-shooting so far? 

If all else fails Restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a good starting point:

Howdy Holly,

Could these be stock photos?  Could it be that you had paid for these images but now your machine is no longer logged in so they're no longer validated as purchased?  Just a thought...

Thanks,
David

Thanks for the response, no they were purchased from a designer and she helped me out. She had to send them each individually to my email instead of a zip file. I thought it was her watermark but she said it wasn't so we still are not sure why the words were behind the images. I think my program was attaching something to the images but I don't know why!

You still haven't said what those words are. They may seem random to you, but they might give a clue what is happening here.

It's all fixed now, thank you. they were random cursive letters. If I tried to erase them they came right back. It was strange.

Thanks for sharing, Holly.  That's almost certainly a watermark to prevent image piracy.

Thanks,
David
