Removing Text Enhance Ads Pop up

People, I need help. Whenever I browse the web, I can see many words on the page as a link. When I put cursor on top of them, the Text Enhance ads will pop up. Many say that this is just an advertising spam and will cause no damage to the system.

I am very desperate to remove Text Enhance from my computer. It is so bothering and I can’t browse the net the way I used to be. That link thing is very uncomfortable. So, please tell me how I can stop the Text Enhance virus on my computer.

To users who came across this thing, please share some thoughts on the removal process. If you use any tools or programs to uninstall Text Enhance, please be kind to share it.

    I had the same problem, but with something called Delta Search, I used the method described above, but had the same issue, the pop up’s were still there, then I found a site that helps you to reset your url configuration settings and that did the trick. Hope this helps you too, it’s for Firefox though:

    After reviewing the list of software apps installed on my Win7 PC,
    I came across an app called “OneDownload”, which is some
    sort of online tv download software. Well it turns out, that it harbors
    the “text enhanced pop up advertising”. After uninstalling it, no more
    irritating bogus hyperlinks.

    If you have firefox then, I disabled shockwave and installed flashplayer again. Then, higtlight was gone. But shockwave is still disabled when you look, but again highligted words are gone.

    Thanks Guys, it is gone. The name of the Addon in Firefox on my PC was “Hosts”. I removed it from my browser and then uninstall it via Control Panel. It is gone.

    Here’s what I did (I’m using internet explorer on my Windows8 Laptop):
    Tools>Safety>AtiveX Filtering
    Repeat the steps above just to make sure that “ActiveX Filtering” is unchecked

    Hope that helps.
