Esperando a coinhive.com...

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have Kaspersky Total Security 2018 installed in my Windows 7 PC at the Office.

Lately I have observed that when I try to visit any url with Firefox, it takes a long, long time and I have a message at the bottom left in my browser: "Esperando a coinhive.com..." (Waiting for coinhive.com...). Unless I press F5 the page will not load. This also happens with Chrome and with Internet Explorer (though with Explorer there is no message at the bottom).

The antivirus is up to date. And the complete analisys does not report any threat.

Does anyone know what the problem is.

Thanks in advance.

It is not.

Instead, please do this: Kaspersky Settings > Additional > Threats and exclusions > Detection types > enable Detect Other Software.
and do a databases update > reboot, then do a scan.  

Clear the contents of your Temp folder, instructions: http://support.kaspersky.com/1161 and then reboot.

After that, uninstall any recently installed junk > reboot. 

After that, uninstall any and all junk toolbars > reboot.

Uninstall/disable any and all junk browser add-ons and extensions and plugins in all of your browsers. 

Remove the junk argument from the target field of the browser shortcut properties. 

Remove any and all junk search providers in all of your browsers.

Then if need be, change your home page, in all of your browsers. 

How to clean up your browsers: http://support.kaspersky.com/us/viruses/solutions/10319

If you are using a router, reset the router, change the router password to a strong password, enter the correct information according to your internet providers instructions, then clear browser cache and cookies, reboot. 

Any better after that? 

If still no go, Please post your GetSystemInfo report link, instructions are located in the third (3rd) pinned topic. 

Please see the small print that is located at the bottom of this message.

Thanks a lot for your help. The problem was caused by a missconfiguration of the router.
