I'm a Demi but I im suddenly getting ads

I've been a demi for quite some time, but today I find ads bombarding all of the pages. Weirdly they began arriving just as my adblock plugin crashed.

They're appearing in the most random places, highlighed words, links that aren't even ad related redirecting me to "win an iPhone" pages"

Those aren't our ads...looks like you've got Text-Enhance adware installed on your system somehow.
