Browser doesn't support this page. Please update browser. ???

By Jrhorer ·
Has anybody ran into this one yet? A large red box asking to update the browser? I know its ridiculous because I opened the same page two minutes prior. Anyone?

Have a great day!

That sound very odd, almost like malware. What browser are you using?

But assuming that it's one of the ones that works on Windows have you messed with the Security Settings recently?

So, this showed up on some students laptops (3) and luckily not mine. They had NOT changed any settings. It happened in IE, Mozilla and Chrome. I did some reading on it and there was an opinion put forth that it may be coming from Comcast routers. I ran MBAM and SBS+D (nothing showed up) also read through Symantecs definitions for something with the same characteristics and couldn't find anything. It seems as though this problem just showed up roughly 5 days ago. Thanks for taking the time to read my question folks! Have a great day!

One of my clients just had this happened to him. I also ran Malwrebytes which found nothing. I also checked the host file to see if it was hijacked - it was not. We did a system restore which corrected the symptom. This happened while trying to open - so I pinged from his workstation and recorded the IP address. I did a reverse lookup and the address was owned by yahoo. When I entered the IP in the URL Yahoo came up correctly. What I should have done, but did not, was to check to see if there was an unauthorized proxy setting.
