    Where are you seeing these ads? Please post a link to an example so we can examine what’s going on.

    i just went through my post and the pictures were missing (safari). I didnt see any ads this time. Same happened in firefox. i dont remember what browser I was using when i saw ads most likely exploer 9 or i just updated to chrome. it says its an old version but the updates kept failing i am doing a safe mode spyware/malware check now.

    There are several browser add-ons which turn words into ad links. Make sure you haven’t got any of those.

    @somanycrafts
    raincoster is right there is a text enhance one that does what you are describing. WordPress does not use text-enhanced link ads. It’s caused by browser extension that was installed in the browser. 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.

    so you are also saying if my viewers have those ad ons, it doesnt matter if i have them off or on they will see those annoying ads, right?

    Correct, it’s the add-on itself that is maliciously inserting the ads. We aren’t doing it.

    You should be able to find the extension causing the trouble by deactivating each one individually.

    Then, you could definitely write a blog post about it to tell your readers. :)
