Text Enhance?

#1Coopman1010Posted 8/1/2012 11:56:32 AM
Google Chrome is underlining a bunch of different words on various websites that when hovered over lead to a definition provided by Text Enhance. I've been trying to get rid of it for a bit by clearing my browser cookies and looking in my extensions but it isn't disappearing. I only have three extensions and none of them are Text Enhance and disabling my cookies did nothing.

How do I get rid of this?
I wonder what's for DINNER?

This. Not sure if it's a cookie or some sort of virus. You do have to manually get rid of it. I had it happen to me about 6 months ago.

It sounds like you probably installed something you shouldn't have - a shady codec package, browser toolbar, or something. Some things that can infect you with it include packages called Codec C or Codec M, or the StartNow toolbar. Removing any/all of those elements seems to do the trick to get rid of that malware.

Be smarter about what you download in the future.

See if there's anything there you don't actually want enabled.
