My browsers all keep randomly opening to a page http://tv.channel157news.com..
I am using WIN 8 on relatively new PC with an Intel 3930k with comcast high speed 50 MBPS and a new ASUS router (RT-AC66U).
Periodically, and usually when I am away from the PC a browser window will open up possibly at set times or when I come out of sleep mode and have the following link (similar with other browsers):
This link is a scam ad for a virus program of some sort. Many people now are posting on other forums in the last week or so that are getting this with no resolution from anyone yet. Each day I see more and more postings from people getting this issue on various forums with no answers from anyone with a fix. I run a clean PC and have only DLed things like adobe updates and reliable programs.
I contacted Norton live help and the TECH accessed my PC remotely and I actually showed him the page that keeps popping up. He did several internal checks and I believe ran Norton power eraser and was not able to find anything wrong. I have run several full system scans that showed no issues. I then even tried (DL AFTER this issue) several reliable malware programs (ASC, Super anti spyware) and the all come up with nothing.
I am concerned about this as it seems to be a new and growing issue. The only thing I came up with is that in my TASK SCHEDULER I see the following that I am not sure about:
AutoKMS (multiple triggers defined) which shows READY
DSite (At 1:38PM and repeat every hour) which shows READY
GoogleUpdateTaskMachineCore (multiple triggers defined) READY
GoogleUpdateTaskMachineUA (at 1:50PM every day, repeat every hour) READY
Optimize Start Menu Cache Files-S-1-5.......1001 (When computer is idle) DISABLED
Optimize Start Menu Cache Files-S-1-5 ...1007 (When computer is idle) DISABLED
Anyone that can help me with this would be much appreciated as I am very concerned about my safety with this and the fact that none of the best malware programs can detect this as of yet and the problems grows daily. Thank you for looking and I look forward to getting rid of this garbage from my PC.
