At many blogs and spam detection pages on the internet, people are complaining about getting infected with a program that highlights chosen words on a webpage, and when hovering them with the cursor an add is appearing saying “Powered by Text-Enhance“.
The major problem here is that none of the spam killers or antivirus programs, not even known ones like Norton, Bullguard and … detect it as what it is – annoying spam that needs to get removed right away.
I personally got infected by installing an extension to Google Chrome webbrowser. Well I admit, I didn’t take my usual precaution and looked into the program before installing it. Never the less it was annoying, and not easy to get rid of, well that was until I understood from where I got the nuisance.
I could not find my actual problem on the internet, why I wrote this. I did though get some hints.
One good hint I got was to disable all the installed extension to Chrome, and then enable them one at a time, until the headache revealed itself.
I found in my case, that it came with an extension called “dislike it!”, a facebook dislike button. Well it sounded nice, and actually seemed like working – bit I was infected with this unwanted add blower.
So, all I had to do – fortunately, was to delete the Chrome extension and it is gone.
Hopefully I helped you save a lot of time, that I didn’t save.
