Windows 10: Google redirection localhost.world
Maybe the fake certificates installed by this infection are the reason programs can't find it... but I am not sure
Have you deleted the following registry entries and also checked if they come back?
They might come back if you did not delete the scheduled task (properly) that is set to run every x hours or days
How do I exactly do that and is this safe?
I'm unfamiliar with these things.
By the way thank you so far for the help and fast replies!
Put this in notepad and save it as regfix.txt. Close notepad.
After this rename regfix.txt to regfix.bat.
reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v AutoConfigURL
reg delete "HKCU\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v AutoConfigURL
reg delete "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v EnableAutoProxyResultCache
Then open this file by rightclicking the file and then choose 'Run as administrator'. Confirm you want to open this file.
The screen, see below, pops up where you will have to confirm the deletion of every registry key. Type 'Y' and hit enter to delete the registry key. Repeat for the other keys.
Renaming it to regfix.bat is not changing the file extension so I don't get the run as admin option.
I think you have showing file extensions disabled, so you renamed it to regfix.bat.txt. Make them visible by doing this:
Sorry, for Windows 10 see here:
You can keep the file and use it again in a couple of days or so to make sure the keys do not reappear. If the keys cannot be found, the script will tell you by this error:
ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.
Then you're all good.
Thanks a million!
The past 7-8 years (since win 7) I almost never had any kind of issue like this, I protect my pc very well, and managed to solve every issue if ever happened.
It's somewhat a shame that even with all these anti malware/virus programs I use, something can still come through.
Please remove Spyhunter. (questionable program....)
same problem with EDGE (the new browser) - can't access localhost type of addresses. I use several media servers with Web interface for controls etc.
Get around - use loopback adapter -- but why should I -- Chrome / FF / IE all work...
Edge has been modified so you CAN set it to access local host type of sites (at least in build 10240).
This was mentioned a while ago but just as a reminder -- many people have servers etc that have a web interface with a localhost or...
I've just installed windows 10 which all seems to have gone very well.
The only problem I can't currently fix is that google seems to think I am in France!

Hi, since yesterday my Hyper-V stoped work.
I have no clue of whats going on.
I tried to uninstall and install it again, but didn't work.
Does someone knows how to purge hyper-v configuration when remove/uninstall it? Because it seems...
This is aimed at Win 8, but should be the same for 10
As some of us have found out, modern apps such as Edge are not allowed to send network traffic to the local host, so things like media servers and routers do not work
I have just been...
