This page shows how to remove bkz.evgiagvu.com from Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
Having issues with bkz.evgiagvu.com showing up in the lower left corner of your browser? If so, you might have some potentially unwanted program installed on your computer. I noticed bkz.evgiagvu.com in Mozilla Firefox’s statusbar when doing a search at Google, but I guess bkz.evgiagvu.com can appear if you are using Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera too.
The following are some of the status bar messages you may see in your browser’s status bar:
- Waiting for bkz.evgiagvu.com…
- Transferring data from bkz.evgiagvu.com…
- Looking up bkz.evgiagvu.com…
- Read bkz.evgiagvu.com
- Connected to bkz.evgiagvu.com…
If you also see this on your computer, you almost certainly have some potentially unwanted program installed on your machine that makes the bkz.evgiagvu.com domain appear in your browser. So there’s no use contacting the owner of the site you were browsing. The bkz.evgiagvu.com status bar messages are not coming from them. I’ll do my best to help you with the bkz.evgiagvu.com removal in this blog post.
I found bkz.evgiagvu.com on one of the lab computers where I have some potentially unwanted programs running. I’ve talked about this in some of the previous blog posts. The potentially unwanted programs was installed on purpose, and from time to time I check if something new has appeared, such as pop-up windows, new tabs in the web browsers, injected ads on site that usually don’t show ads, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.
bkz.evgiagvu.com was registered on 2015-03-18. bkz.evgiagvu.com resolves to 184.108.40.206.
So, how do you remove bkz.evgiagvu.com from your web browser? On the machine where bkz.evgiagvu.com showed up in the status bar I had CheckMeUp installed. I removed it with FreeFixer and that stopped the web browser from loading data from bkz.evgiagvu.com.
The problem with this type of status bar message is that it can be caused by many variants of potentially unwanted programs, not just the potentially unwanted program on my machine. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the status bar messages.
So, what can be done to solve the problem? To remove bkz.evgiagvu.com you need to examine your machine for potentially unwanted programs and uninstall them. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:
The first thing I would do to remove bkz.evgiagvu.com is to examine the software installed on the machine, by opening the “Uninstall programs” dialog. You can reach this dialog from the Windows Control Panel. If you are using one of the more recent versions of Windows you can just type in “uninstall” in the Control Panel’s search field to find that dialog:
Click on the “Uninstall a program” link and the Uninstall programs dialog will open up:
Do you see something dubious in there or something that you don’t remember installing? Tip: Sort on the “Installed On” column to see if something was installed approximately about the same time as you started getting the bkz.evgiagvu.com status bar messages.
The next thing to check would be your browser’s add-ons. Potentially unwanted programs often show up under the add-ons menu in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera. Is there something that looks suspicious? Something that you don’t remember installing?
I think most users will be able to identify and uninstall the potentially unwanted program with the steps outlined above, but in case that did not work you can try the FreeFixer removal tool to identify and remove the potentially unwanted program. FreeFixer is a freeware tool that I started develop about 8 years ago. Freefixer is a tool designed to manually track down and uninstall unwanted software. When you’ve tracked down the unwanted files you can simply tick a checkbox and click on the Fix button to remove the unwanted file.
FreeFixer’s removal feature is not locked like many other removal tools out there. It won’t require you to pay for the program just when you are about to remove the unwanted files.
And if you’re having troubles figuring out if a file is legit or potentially unwanted in the FreeFixer scan result, click on the More Info link for the file. That will open up a web page which contains additional details about the file. On that web page, check out the VirusTotal report which can be very useful:
