View Full Version : Welcome to urlseek .1 nginx!!

25-07-2012, 08:25 AM
I woke up yesterday to what appeared to be a normal computer. Midway through the day I found it necessary to reboot my modem and computer because my internet connection was not working. Now when I open Internet Explorer I get a blank screen with just "Welcome to urlseek .1 nginx!!" on it.

Is this a virus, and if so what is the best process for clearing it?

nginx is a web server, and it sounds like your PC has been compromised with some description of Malware.

Go to malwarebytes.org and grab the free version, start with a scan using that
Then try http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/ and scan with the NOD32 online scanner

You maybe infected with something. Open IE go to internet options. Then go to connections / LAN settings. Make sure the entry under proxy server is unticked. And change the homepage under Internet options / General. There's a lot of people (according to Google) that are seeing the same message. But, there's not a lot of replies, saying what the cause is. Put teamviewer on your computer. I could have a look if you want. Install it then send the ID and password it gives you to me, in a PM.
