Hi Guys,

Chrome and Firefox over the past few days has been giving random links to ads. Its not like pop-up. In a normal webpage, There is just a random link on a random word and when I click on it, it opens an ad. My OS is windows 7 home basic 32 Bit. The problem is not Occurring in IE8 or opera.
So I am not sure whether its a Malware/Adware or just a change to my browser settings.

I ran a check with Malware bytes,Microsoft security essentials,super Anti spyware. No detection.

Kindly advise me. Thanks in advance.

P.S: I am not sure how to upload the screenshot, if you can advise me I can do that as well.


Cheers,
Jagan

I guess I have found the solution, just minutes after submitting the post. :P

It seems that it is a "click to continue- text to enhance" bot crawl. I am trying to remove it now.

Will update once it is cleared.
