UnblockService.com and WPAD.DAT


Recommended Posts

So I keep getting an error message blocked by ESET. the IP and the URL is Unblockservice.com

I have run the malware removal tool and malwarebytes, how do I remove this and what is causing the constant search for that URL?

Maybe your computer is infected with some adware or malware that keeps enabling it. Please create a Process monitor log from the time when you disable automatic proxy configuration and it re-enables without your intervention.

Does the setting re-enable immediately after you disable it or after some time? If the latter, does it also happen with the computer disconnected from the network?

Hi @uktotty,


Reset all the installed browsers in the machine, after that edit the Properties of every link to

a browser and be sure only the .exe is listed like "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

Any extra text there, deleted.


This is just in case you don't do it yet.
