Re: "app.mediaplex.com"

I recently started getting this strange message in a small window, I am running MSIE:
The server app.mediaplex.com is asking for your username and password. The server reports that it is from Conversant Ad Server User.

WARNING:Your User Name and Password will be sent using basic authentication on a connection that isn't secure.


This window also has an empty cell for a username and one for a Password, and buttons for OK and Cancel
I have run my AVG antivirus to no avail. Can anyone help please?

Check your startup items with CCleaner.

If you see Mediaplex amongst them, disable it with CCleaner.

✔ Best Answer
This was just asked a couple of days ago. Your system is infected with malware.

Download & run AdwCleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...

When you've run ADWCleaner run this also. It's from the same firm but looks for different things:

MalwareBytes:

(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
