This page shows how to remove js.ourinfoonlinestack.com from Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
Did you just see js.ourinfoonlinestack.com in the statusbar of your browser or in the network log and ask yourself where it came from? Or did js.ourinfoonlinestack.com show up while you search for something on one of the major search engines, such as the Google.com search engine?
Here is how the js.ourinfoonlinestack.com connection looked like on my computer’s network log, while doing a Google search:
Here are some of the status bar messages you may see in your browser’s status bar:
- Waiting for js.ourinfoonlinestack.com…
- Transferring data from js.ourinfoonlinestack.com…
- Looking up js.ourinfoonlinestack.com…
- Read js.ourinfoonlinestack.com
- Connected to js.ourinfoonlinestack.com…
Does this sound like your machine, you presumably have some adware installed on your machine that makes the js.ourinfoonlinestack.com domain appear in your browser. So there’s no use contacting the owner of the site you were browsing. The js.ourinfoonlinestack.com status bar messages are not coming from them. I’ll do my best to help you with the js.ourinfoonlinestack.com removal in this blog post.
Those that have been spending some time on this blog already know this, but here we go: Some time ago I dedicated a few of my lab computers and knowingly installed a few adware programs on them. I have been following the actions on these systems to see what kinds of advertisements that are displayed. I’m also looking on other interesting things such as if the adware updates itself automatically, or if it downloads and installs additional unwanted software on the machines. I first noticed the js.ourinfoonlinestack.com in Mozilla Firefox’s status bar on one of these lab computers.
js.ourinfoonlinestack.com resolves to 188.8.131.52. It was registered on 2014-02-18. I’ve also seen the app.ourinfoonlinestack.com and logs.ourinfoonlinestack.com subdomains in use. logs.ourinfoonlinestack.com resolves to 184.108.40.206. Here’s some of the info from the WHOIS database:
Registrant Organization: Domains By Proxy, LLC Registrant Street: DomainsByProxy.com Registrant Street: 14747 N Northsight Blvd Suite 111, PMB 309 Registrant City: Scottsdale Registrant State/Province: Arizona Registrant Postal Code: 85260 Registrant Country: United States
Update 2015-03-19: I also noticed another subdomain called stats.ourinfoonlinestack.com.
So, how do you remove js.ourinfoonlinestack.com from your web browser? On the machine where js.ourinfoonlinestack.com showed up in the status bar I had Taplika and Clock Hand installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the browser from loading data from js.ourinfoonlinestack.com.
The problem with status bar messages like this one is that it can be caused by many variants of adware, not just the adware on my machine. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the status bar messages.
To remove js.ourinfoonlinestack.com you need to review your machine for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:
The first thing I would do to remove js.ourinfoonlinestack.com is to examine the programs 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 OS 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 strange-looking listed 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 seeing the js.ourinfoonlinestack.com status bar messages.
Then I would check the browser add-ons. Adware often appear under the add-ons menu in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Is there anything that looks suspicious? Something that you don’t remember installing?
I think most users will be able to find and remove the adware with the steps outlined above, but in case that did not work you can try the FreeFixer removal tool to identify and remove the adware. FreeFixer is a freeware tool that I’ve developed since 2006. It’s a tool designed to manually identify and remove unwanted software. When you’ve found 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 crippled like many other removal tools out there. It will not require you to purchase the program just when you are about to remove the unwanted files.
And if you’re having troubles determining if a file is legitimate or adware in FreeFixer’s scan report, click on the More Info link for the file. That will open up your browser with a page which contains additional information about the file. On that web page, check out the VirusTotal report which can be very useful:
