Did you just see fei.pro-market.net in the statusbar of your browser and wonder where it came from? Or did fei.pro-market.net show up while you searched for something on one of the big search engines, such as the Google search engine?
Here’s a screenshot of fei.pro-market.net when it showed up on my machine in the network log:
This happened while I did a search at Google.
The following are some of the status bar messages you may see in your browser’s status bar:

If this description sounds like your machine, you almost certainly have some potentially unwanted program installed on your machine that makes the fei.pro-market.net domain appear in your browser. So there’s no idea contacting the owner of the website you currently were browsing. The fei.pro-market.net status bar messages are not coming from them. I’ll do my best to help you with the fei.pro-market.net removal in this blog post.
For those that are new to the blog: A little while back I dedicated a few of my lab systems and wilfully installed a few potentially unwanted programs on them. I have been following the actions on these machines to see what kinds of advertisements, if any, that are displayed. I’m also looking on other interesting things such as if the potentially unwanted program auto-updates, or if it installs additional software on the systems. I first spotted fei.pro-market.net in Mozilla Firefox’s statusbar on one of these lab computers.
fei.pro-market.net resolves to 188.8.131.52.
So, how do you remove fei.pro-market.net from your web browser? On the machine where fei.pro-market.net showed up in the status bar I had SalePlus, YouTubeAdBlocke and IStart 5.3.7 installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the browser from loading data from fei.pro-market.net.
The bad news with this type of status bar message is that it can be caused by many variants of potentially unwanted programs. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the status bar messages.
To remove fei.pro-market.net you need to check your machine for potentially unwanted programs and uninstall them. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:
- What software do you have installed if you look in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel? Something that you don’t remember installing yourself or that was recently installed?
- You can also check the add-ons you installed in your browsers. Same thing here, do you see something that you don’t remember installing?
- If that didn’t help, you can give FreeFixer a try. FreeFixer is built to assist users when manually tracking down potentially unwanted programs. It is a freeware utility that I’ve been working since 2006 and it scans your system at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your computer. If you would like to get additional details about a file in FreeFixer’s scan result, you can just click the More Info link for that file and a web page with a VirusTotal report will open up, which can be very useful to determine if the file is safe or malware:
