Please if I posted this in the wrong forum let me know which forum i should post it and I will.
A friend of mine had the Welcome to nginx come up when she went into IE which should have come up with the AT&T webpage. she ran Malwarebytes quick scan, which found nothing so she ran the full scan and that did not find anything. She ran Spybot Search and Destroy and cleaned up the coupon spyware. after that her computer was running fine she did not get the Welcome to nginx webpage. yesterday she got the same webpage Welcome to nginx. She looked it up on the internet (so did I) and have found several conflicting answers. some say it is not a virus/malware etc it has to do with the proxy server and check out the internet options clear the dns etc, some say it is a virus/malware and remove it. She has Microsoft Security Esstentails, ran the quick and full scan and it did not find anything. I looked at the laptop and ran microsoft security scanner quick scan and it did not find anything, full scan came up clean as well. I ran ESET and nothing came up.
I have uninstalled her old versions of Adobe Reader and Java and installed the current versions. Her laptop seems to be running fine however:
my question is: is Welcome to nginx a virus or something to do with the proxy server that some of the web sites say it is?
another issue i had was installing Logmein software, it said it could not download it. I have not had that proplem with any of my other friends computers and was wondering if the Welcome to nginx is causing me to download it. Does anyone know?
