Not sure if i'm posting this in the wrong forum since it suddenly shows up everywhere...
I noticed that suddenly in every single post random words are highlighted green and if you hover
your cursor over it some stupid ad shows up which has that words. What the hell is up with that?
Also, random ads appear in pictures all of a sudden. Am i the only one experiencing this?

Edit: This is what i'm talking about...

which browser are you using?! I'm using Firefox 11 and your (and other members) post looks normal to me (without the ads of the SS you posted)

I had it earlier today in Chrome. No idea as i never authorised it as an extension. Eventually was able to disable and remove it from the Settings - Tools - Extensions menu.

Seems to have piggybacked on to something. It should show up as Text Enhance, but might be called something else. Look here (http://botcrawl.com/how-to-remove-text-enhance/).

Thanks for the link, indeed it turned out to be an extension that i never authorized but i deleted it and it's fixed now. Thanks mate! :)
