Did you just get a pop-up from fsn2ip0s.com and wonder where it came from? Did the fsn2ip0s.com ad appear to have been popped up from a web site that under normal circumstances don’t use aggressive advertising such as pop-up windows? Or did the fsn2ip0s.com pop up show up while you clicked a link on one of the big search engines, such as Google, Bing or Yahoo?
Here is a screenshot on the fsn2ip0s.com pop-up from my machine:
fsn2ip0s.com resolves to 22.214.171.124. The following domains also resolves to the same IP, thanks to DomainTools.com:
If this description sounds like your story, you apparently have some adware installed on your system that pops up the fsn2ip0s.com ads. Contacting the site owner would be a waste of time. The ads are not coming from them. I’ll do my best to help you with the fsn2ip0s.com removal in this blog post.
Those that have been visiting this blog already know this, but for new visitors: Not long ago I dedicated a few of my lab computers and purposely installed a few adware programs on them. I’ve been tracking the behaviour on these computers to see what kinds of advertisements that are displayed. I’m also looking on other interesting things such as if the adware auto-updates, or if it downloads and installs additional unwanted software on the machines. I first observed the fsn2ip0s.com pop-up on one of these lab computers.
So, how do you remove the fsn2ip0s.com pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the fsn2ip0s.com ads I had installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the fsn2ip0s.com pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in .
The issue with pop-ups like this one is that it can be popped up by many variants of adware, not just the adware running on my machine. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the pop-ups.
Anyway, here’s my suggestion for the fsn2ip0s.com ads removal:
- Review what programs you have installed in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel. Do you see something that you don’t remember installing or that was recently installed?
- How about your add-ons you installed in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Anything in the list that you don’t remember installing?
- If that didn’t solve the problem, you can give FreeFixer a try. FreeFixer is built to assist users when manually tracking down adware and other types of unwanted software. It is a freeware utility that I’ve been working since 2006 and it scans your computer at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your system. 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:
