This has been going on for about a week…
Every time I try to watch a video on Youtube from my laptop… I get instantly redirected to "gslbeacon.ligit.com."
Luckily this page isn’t displayed but it is really annoying and I’m getting worried about my laptop. Before this happens… I get a download notice for something called "dpx.js" from "i.simpli.fi." I don’t ever click yes and it still comes up. I have Norton 360 and have ran as many scans as I can but it makes no difference.
Please tell me why this is happening… or even better, please tell me how to REMOVE this problem.
Interesting I dont Know if this will help but it might…
If you are using Google Chrome I would suggest opening The Little Tab Menu –
and going to Settings Once there Click the Tab on the right Saying "Extensions" and Viewing What Extensions you have enabled IF you see anything suspicious Delete the Extension And Check All your installed Programs and Again look for anything Weird or "Suspicious" I would also recommend Doing a Whole Computer Scan With Norton you Might Have a virus
Hope this Helps Sorry if it doesn’t 🙁
By NO Means Use SAFE MODE as suggested by Malwaretips. Not all Malware loads in Safe Mode and Removal tools are limited in their functions. Malware is best to remove in Normal Windows mode, Best when it’s jumping all over the screen. If no other option is possible, then Safe mode can be used but only as a last resort
Run in the Order Given:
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from the link above
Run the file and follow the onscreen instructions to extract it to a location of your choosing (your desktop by default)
Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit will then open, follow the instruction in the wizard to update and allow the program to scan your computer for threats
Click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats and reboot if prompted to do so
Wait while the system shuts down and the cleanup process is performed
Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain. If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process
If no additional threats were found, verify that your system is now running normally, making sure that the following items are functional: Internet access, Windows Update, Windows Firewall
If there are additional problems with your system, such as any of those listed above or other system issues, then run the ‘fixdamage’ tool included with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit located within the ‘Plugins’ folder and reboot
Verify that your system is now functioning normally
