Welcome to nginx problem

by martin_wing / June 18, 2012 6:48 PM PDT

Welcome to NGINX- is this a virus or proxy issue?
I have the issue with my IE browser. I ran Malwarebytes and Spybot Search and Destroy scan, no threats detected.

Is this a virus? Should I worry it or just let it go?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Tell us about your computer, make, model, specifications, which Windows, and about this problem you state.

If MBAM, Spybot and the other scan (Destroy?), doesn't find anything, how do you know you have it?

What messages do you see?

Desktop computer, Windows 7 32 bits, Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2310, 4.00 GB. When I go to IE, I get the message"
Welcome to nginx".

Is that the Home Page?
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / June 18, 2012 7:13 PM PDT

We still need more.

You open IE, then what? Is your Home Page something to do with this nginx?

What is the URL, (web address), of this page?

Is it a pop up? If so, what else does it say?

Do you use a proxy server? If so it seems this may be a temporary issue, viz;

"Nginx (Engine X) is an open source web server and reverse proxy server. Many websites use it, for example Facebook.

The "Welcome to Nginx!" message means that something has gone awry on the server side. It's a glitch. Nothing you can do anything about other than maybe clearing your cache and restarting your browser."

Homepage

I think Mark hit it. Try this and see what happens, CONTROL PANEL, INTERNET OPTIONS,if the homepage is listed as nginx (and highlighted) do a back space, type in MSN.COM, click apply, then ok, go back and see what happens, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Good luck!!
