Keep getting "404 page not found, nginx" message/ a virus?


Recommended Posts

Hi. For quite some time, instead of the website I know is there, like youtube.com or some other well know site, I get a white page with "404 page not found, nginx" or "Welcome to nginx". I try the same search on another browser and I can get the page. I have this problem on every browser I try. What's going on? Is this a virus? Some call it a redirect virus and I tried all the suggestions I found to get rid of it but it wont go away. I used Super-Antispyware and McCafee and Anti-Malware but the "nginx" problem wont leave.

 

What is this and what can I do to get rid of it? Thanks for any help.

Give this a try...

 

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on

pushdwindowssystem32driversetc

attrib -h -s -r hosts

echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS

attrib +r +h +s hosts

popd

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /flushdns

netsh winsock reset all

netsh int ip reset all

shutdown -r -t 1

del %0

 

Save as flush.bat to your desktop.

Double click on the flush.bat file to run it.Vista and Windows 7... right click the .bat file and choose to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

 

Let us know how you get on...

Sorry for the late reply. I tried your suggestion, caintry boy, and it seems to help, but I'm still getting a lot of "Welcome to Nginx!" and "Page not found" messages where I shouldn't. Is there anything else I can do to stop this completely?

Just to be sure that there is no malware involved lets have you run this > Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Run the program like this:

Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.

Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.

When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location and post the results.

I think my problem is solved. I read that a program called Panda anti-phishing could be the problem so I should uninstall it. I have enough protection already so I uninstalled it and I haven't had any more problems. Thanks for the advice, everybody.
