How to stop SPAM Text Enhance on your browser (Chrome)

I recently went to a wholesale chinese site that sounded to go to be true, and after googling foudn it was to god to be true. Afterwards however random text on websites would pop up an add that seemed to be run by Text Enhance. After blowing through forums, and their help I figured that it was an extension that was not correctly named.

So I went to my browser's Extension Manger in my case Tools->Extensions.

  • Disabled all the extensions, 
  • went back to the page with the "enhancements"
  • Pressed refresh and saw that the enhancements where disabled
  • I then went through each extension and enabled them one by one to find the misbehaving on.
Now fixed. So the malware / virus or whatever had obviously affected the extension, or was an extension automatically installed.
