lots of ads and links showing up on my blog and others

  1. I logged in today and suddenly there are links to other sites that I didn't put in myself all over my posts. they are automatically there as soon as I preview my post. Has something changed or happened?

    The blog I need help with is dearsillygirl.wordpress.com.

  2. When you see ad at the end of blog posts then provided you see this small About These Ads link http://en.wordpress.com/about-these-ads/ what you are seeing is WordPress.com generated advertising.

    However, it's possible for ads to appear in your browser that were not placed there by WordPress.com. These ads are sometimes caused by malware or a virus, but more often it is due to a browser extension or toolbar that you may have installed in your browser. WordPress.com does not use text enhance or text link ads or pop-up ads or header ads or sidebar ads or links in comments. If you are seeing those then see here:
