Did you just see in the statusbar of your browser and ask yourself where it came from? Or did show up while you search for something on one of the big search engines, such as the Google search engine?

The screenshot above is from my network log.… appeared there when I did a Google search.

Here are some of the status bar messages you may see in your browser’s status bar:

  • Waiting for…
  • Transferring data from…
  • Looking up…
  • Read
  • Connected to…

If this sounds like what you are seeing on your computer, you almost certainly have some potentially unwanted program installed on your computer that makes the domain appear in your web browser. Don’t flame the people that owns the website you were at when you first spotted in the status bar. They are most likely not responsible, but from the potentially unwanted program that’s installed on your computer. I’ll do my best to help you remove the message in this blog post.

Those that have been spending some time on this blog already know this, but here we go: Recently I dedicated some of my lab computers and intentionally installed some potentially unwanted programs on them. I’ve been monitoring the actions on these machines to see what kinds of adverts that are displayed. I’m also looking on other interesting things such as if the potentially unwanted program updates itself, or if it downloads additional potentially unwanted programs on the systems. I first observed the in Mozilla Firefox’s status bar on one of these lab machines. resolves to the address. was created on 2015-01-05.

So, how do you remove from your web browser? On the machine where showed up in the status bar I had TinyWallet, BlockAndSurf and BrowserWarden installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the web browser from loading data from

The issue with status bar messages such as this one is that it can be caused by many variants of potentially unwanted programs, not just the potentially unwanted program running on my computer. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the status bar messages.

Anyway, here’s my suggestion for the removal:

  1. Check 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?
  2. How about your add-ons you installed in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Safari. Anything in the list that you don’t remember installing?
  3. If that did not help, I’d recommend a scan with FreeFixer to manually track down the potentially unwanted program. FreeFixer is a freeware tool that I’m working on that scans your computer at lots of locations, such as browser add-ons, processes, Windows services, recently modified files, etc. If you want to get additional details about a file in the scan result, you can click the More Info link for that file and a web page will open up with a VirusTotal report which will be very useful to determine if the file is safe or malware:
