This page shows how to remove s.klmtm2k6.com from Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
Did you just see s.klmtm2k6.com in the status bar of your browser and wonder where it came from? Or did s.klmtm2k6.com show up while you searched for something on one of the major search engines, such as the Google.com search engine?
Here is a screenshot on s.klmtm2k6.com from my computer:
Here are some of the status bar messages you may see in your browser’s status bar:
- Waiting for s.klmtm2k6.com…
- Transferring data from s.klmtm2k6.com…
- Looking up s.klmtm2k6.com…
- Read s.klmtm2k6.com
- Connected to s.klmtm2k6.com…
Does this sound like what you see your system, you presumably have some potentially unwanted program installed on your system that makes the s.klmtm2k6.com domain appear in your browser. So don’t send angry emails to the website you were browsing, they are most likely not responsible for the s.klmtm2k6.com status bar messages. The potentially unwanted program on your computer is. I’ll try help you to remove the s.klmtm2k6.com status bar messages in this blog post.
Those that have been reading this blog already know this, but here we go: Recently I dedicated some of my lab computers and intentionally installed a few potentially unwanted programs on them. Since then I’ve been monitoring 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 updates itself automatically, or if it installs additional software on the machines. I first observed s.klmtm2k6.com in Mozilla Firefox’s status bar on one of these lab computers.
s.klmtm2k6.com was registered on 2015-10-28. s.klmtm2k6.com resolves to 18.104.22.168.
So, how do you remove s.klmtm2k6.com from your browser? On the machine where s.klmtm2k6.com showed up in the statusbar I had gosearch.me, Live Malware Protection, Windows Menager and SmartComp Safe Network installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the browser from loading data from s.klmtm2k6.com.
The issue 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 that’s installed 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 remove s.klmtm2k6.com you need to review your computer for potentially unwanted programs and uninstall them. Here’s my suggested removal procedure:
The first thing I would do to remove s.klmtm2k6.com is to examine the software installed on the machine, by opening the “Uninstall programs” dialog. You can find 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:
Do you see something dubious listed there or something that you don’t remember installing? Tip: Sort on the “Installed On” column to see if something was installed about the same time as you started getting the s.klmtm2k6.com status bar messages.
Then you can examine you browser add-ons. Potentially unwanted programs often appear under the add-ons menu in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, 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 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 many years ago. It’s a tool designed to manually find and remove 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 problems figuring out if a file is clean or potentially unwanted 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 quite useful:
