Alert: How do I get rid of Text Enhance??????? I am going to Staples.

  1. Alert to other WordPress users:

    Text Enhance has suddenly without my permission and NOT provided by WordPress.COM, filled my entire computer with pop ups, advertisements, highlighting, underlining, ads that have nothing to do with my site.

    It's really messing up my blog/website on WordPress.ORG. And it makes reading the news and other websites impossible because of the constant flashing of text and pictures.

    I am taking my computer to STAPLES for a diagnostic scan and removal of Text Enhance. This is NOT a wordpress.com program.

    You are posting to the wrong support forum. All support for wordpress.org installs is provided here > http://wordpress.org/support/

    WordPress does not use text-enhanced ads. This has come up before and it was caused by browser extension that was installed in the person's browser. http://wafflesatnoon.com/2011/10/05/seeing-unwanted-text-enhance-ads/

    Deactivate all browser add-ons and extentions, run a full computer scan, and then log into your blog again without activating any browser add-ons or extensions and see if the links disappear or not.

  3. Elimination of Text-Enhance.com

    I think I found a way to outfox Text Enhance. I tried to delete the program, but TE is sneaky. They offer a way to stop the Ads by using a check box, BUT the next time you clear the Cookies, they send a new cookie and put themselves right back on your computer. So after much fussing and fuming and googling, I think I may have found a way to stop the TE.

    Here's what I am trying now:

    1 Go to the Tools box. Open, scroll down to Internet Options.
    2 Click on the Security tab. Click on the Restricted icon (red circle with slash mark).
    3 You should then see a box to the right of the Restricted icon which says Sites. Click on Sites.
    4 In the Sites box, fill in the URL of the Site (Text Enhance). Click
    on Add.

    This "ought," "should" prevent Text Enhance from sending more Cookies to reinstall Text Enhance.

    I tried using TE's unsubscribe directions, I tried using the Control Panel, the C drive, the Downloads from the Favorites section in the Documents section, Chrome, and Firefox, and could not eliminate Text Enhance. TE is sneaky. There is no record anywhere in my computer of ever downloading TE.

    So, try the following:

    1 Tools
    2 Internet options
    3 Security tab
    4 Click on Restricted icon
    5 To the right of Restricted icon, click on Sites
    6 In Sites, fill in the URL of the Text Enhance:
    http://text-enhance.com
    7 Click on ADD. Click on Close.
    8 This returns you to the Internet Options box under the Security tab. Click on OK at bottom of page.

    So far the Text Enhance has disappeard. If not, I will bring more suggestions.

    Good Luck, Ellen Henegar
