xpj.topsehgoagts.com – Removal Instructions

This page shows how to remove xpj.topsehgoagts.com from Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Did you just see xpj.topsehgoagts.com in the statusbar of your browser and wonder where it came from? Or did xpj.topsehgoagts.com show up while you searched for something on one of the major search engines, such as the Google.com search engine?

Here’s how the xpj.topsehgoagts.com status bar message looked like when I got it on my machine:

xpj.topsehgoagts.com connection

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

  • Waiting for xpj.topsehgoagts.com…
  • Transferring data from xpj.topsehgoagts.com…
  • Looking up xpj.topsehgoagts.com…
  • Read xpj.topsehgoagts.com
  • Connected to xpj.topsehgoagts.com…

If this sounds like what you are seeing on your system, you probably have some potentially unwanted program installed on your system that makes the xpj.topsehgoagts.com domain appear in your browser. So there’s no idea contacting the owner of the site you currently were browsing. The xpj.topsehgoagts.com status bar messages are not coming from them. I’ll do my best to help you remove the xpj.topsehgoagts.com message in this blog post.

Those that have been reading this blog already know this, but here we go: A little while back I dedicated a few of my lab computers and wilfully installed a few potentially unwanted programs on them. Since then I’ve been observing the behaviour on these systems 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 noticed xpj.topsehgoagts.com in Mozilla Firefox’s statusbar on one of these lab computers.

xpj.topsehgoagts.com resolves to xpj.topsehgoagts.com was created on 2015-03-18.

So, how do you remove xpj.topsehgoagts.com from your browser? On the machine where xpj.topsehgoagts.com showed up in the status bar I had YouTubeAdBlocke, IStart 5.3.7 and SalePlus installed. I removed them with FreeFixer and that stopped the browser from loading data from xpj.topsehgoagts.com.

The issue with status bar messages like this one is that it can be caused by many variants of potentially unwanted programs, not just the potentially unwanted program that’s installed 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 xpj.topsehgoagts.com removal:

  1. 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?
  2. You can also review the web browser add-ons. Same thing here, do you see anything that you don’t remember installing?
  3. If that does not 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 computer at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your machine. 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:
