Hi, I am occasionally getting a Malwarebytes block on what appears to be an outbound Microsoft Edge CP redirect to "optimizedperformancebetter.com". I can not seem to find any information at all anywhere about this, and I apologize if this issue has already been dealt with. Every virus program and malware program I have tried comes up clean. The report lists the fraud domain as "jcibj.com". Does anyone out there know anything about this at all? Other than that, the computer runs perfectly. Thank you.

Here is the report:

  4. The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've run it before it may not and you may need to select it manually.

Here are the Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner reports. Both of them are clean. I am reluctant to use FRST because the Norton warnings are pretty clear that this might be a really bad idea. Although everything I read seems to indicate that bleepingcomputer is a reliable source, I'm not sure the risk is worth it. It would be easier for me to just use Chrome, since this problem seems directly connected with Microsoft Edge.

Hi,

The file is good and in the correct path.

Navigate to this page and follow the instructions suggested by the Moderator in post no. 2.
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/forum/edge_other-edge_win10/microsoftedgecpexe/9effffbf-171f-46fb-9982-62f9a15c954b

Start at the No. 2 and run DISM as suggested.

Do no 3 as well.

Keep me posted.

FYI, Some additional info on this redirect: I'm getting it in Chrome, MWB reports the system clean, looks to me like an errant ad. I first got a redirect to:

https://peer2fly.com/out?out=https%3A%2F%2Falfatarget.com%2F%3Fpid%3D8%26sid%3D4444444%26kw%3Dbuy%26f%3Dclick%26bu%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fpeer2fly.com%252Fclick.php%253Fkey%253Dsaptev8wpdbs7m6irm89%2526t1%253Dzone%2526t2%253D4444444%2526t3%253Dhttps://imgur.com/gallery/kdhvg0c%2526cost%253Dusdcost

Note that this is coming from imgur, which is where I got a redirect from previously. This redirected to:

https://trackingboox.com/click?node=17&time=1527043140&id=46&pid=8&fid=8&sid=9&rank=0&ad=eyJ0aXRsZSI6ImJ1eSIsInVybCI6InRyaXBob2JvLmNvbSJ9

(note that it's boox, not box), which redirected to

which is what hosted the "please call MS support" popup. I saw this yesterday as well. The final popup (I think, not gonna load this page) was:

http://combines.stream/live/?a=AZ&pagex=0&s1=pNPPlOr9tvbKa7GV0jFpSDplRAcyu8lfASPtxTemSAWGTsEmo4mhjzn_0ot5_r6-Cl7wLE_T_N7Vphjl5IzgWA%2C%2C&os=Windows&browser=Chrome&isp=[redacted]&ip=[redacted]

but with the two redacted bits in there.
