In the Admin Panel, under Board Configuration, select Visual confirmation settings. On that page, enable YES to "GD CAPTCHA" and see if that resolves the issue.

Your board is not working correctly and will not work on a Godaddy free hosting account due to the advertisement injection.

Get a host. If you decide to continue using one of Godaddys paid hosting packages be sure to use their Linux package as it works most of the time (not all). Their Windows package will not work at all with phpBB3.
