    openyes.info


    Does anyone know what "openyes.info" is. Eset Smart Security has blocked 3 or 4 times that I know of.

    It appears to be a domain with a lot of redirects, so questionable...and some scanners have detected threats

    That's about all I could find when I did a search. I did install CyberGhost about 10 days ago to try it and was thinking that could be it. The only thing is I get the warning from Eset even though CyberGhost isn't running.

    Wonder if you'd get the warning if CyberGhost is completely uninstalled? Have you checked your hosts file?

    Might be a good idea to run Malwarebytes to see if it finds any remnants of the program if you've uninstalled it. Anything with possibly shady actions rarely lets go of a OS that easily. If you simply have it turned off, it may be running in the background despite your setting to turn it off. The free version of Malwarebytes will work fine. Do a full system scan & find quarantine anything it finds.

    I have run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware and they only found a few tracking cookies. I'm sure it's from a program I installed. I'm just not sure which one. The programs on my list of suspects are CyberGhost, eM Client, Genie9, and IObit Uninstaller. CyberGhost isn't running but the other programs are running in the background. Eset is blocking it and everything seems to be running so I guess its OK. I would like to know what program is doing this and if it's safe or not. If all else fails I could try the hit and miss method by uninstalling one program at a time. If I do it'll take awhile because it's only happened a few time. I tried looking in Eset for a log but can't find anything about blocking openeyes.info.

    edit: I just thought of two programs that are running in the background and could be causing it, HP Support Assistant and Steam.

    Yeah, you've got me wondering now as well!

    I did find out it's trying to connect to the Netherlands. If the message pops up I'll try to get a screen shot.
