Random connections to techloris.com?

I have no idea why, but sometimes when visiting a page (youtube, twitter, the malwarebytes forum, tenforums.com, a few other places I can't recall) I get a popup from malwarebytes that says that an outbound connection has been blocked to techloris.com.

I ran hitmanpro, malwarebytes, and malwarebytes adwcleaner and none of them found anything. I also have the malwarebytes browser guard and an adblocker installed (ad nauseam). Is this a false positive? Why does my computer keep making outbound connections to this website?

I have a lot more logs I can send if it will help.

Hello @The__Q

More than likely you probably have a search engine or other entry buried in Microsoft Edge that has that entry. Please review your settings to see if you can find and remove it.

Try another browser and the issue probably goes away, thus confirming a bad entry in MS Edge.

Let us know if you're unable to find and remove and we can do some scans of the system.

Thank you

I think I figured it out, AdNauseum has a feature where it clicks on ads (without you actually seeing or loading the ad) and for some reason due to the ad being blocked by malwarebytes it kept trying to refresh the ad to get a thumbnail to show me what it blocked or something like that. No new ads were added to it's "vault" in between the individual malwarebytes messages so I'm gonna assume something like that was happening.

(I did remove all of the search engines and got a popup from malwarebytes after I started edge again)
