  1. http://www.msftconnecttest.com/redirect is a virus on my pc not router??


    hello everyone,


    my name is kamal and i am facing an issue with my hp omen laptop windows 10!


    My pc out of nowhere started to be little slower. after some days I started to get http://www.msftconnecttest.com/redirect in my browser and all my home internet connection stop when i get this redirect and the router gets all buttons off other than the power button.

    So I thought it's normal but after several time this happening I directly turned off my network connection and started looking for a solution or reason for that.


    I waited all night without connecting my laptop using my phone to see if the internet will go down to assume that this is a router issue as answered in other topics. but nothing happened my internet connection was very good and stable and no drops or anything wrong on router.


    So i assumed that there is a malware on my pc causing this issue so i started looking the virus using windows defender!


    after looking in services and in task manager for hours and reading articles on the web..


    there was no threat found! i didn't trust windows defender to be honest. i started to backup some of my most important data and then i started a factory reset which deleted all data.


    now after all what i had done to my pc it re-happened as soon as it is connected to internet connection!


    i read in the previous topics answers that it is a router hijacking and the router needs a reset! but if my laptop is not connected there is no hijack?? this is a very hard situation i am in it and i really need help!


    thank you in advance for helping me!

    Sorry for my english

    :)

  2. msftconnecttest redirect not working on windows 10 public wifi

    Seems odd that I can get onto the login page on my iphone (which apparently does not use msftconnecttest as an interim step, but not the laptop.

    Can I bypass this msftconnecttest step manually?
