Remove static.mybet.com Pop Up Ads

Did you just get interrupted by a pop up ad from static.mybet.com? You are not alone. I also get the static.mybet.com pop ups while browsing. Do the pop ups also circumvent the pop-up blocker in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera. Do the pop-ups appear on sites that does not advertise with popups. Then read on...

The screenshot serves as an example of how a pop-up can look like when it appears in a new tab in Mozilla Firefox. The pop-up in the screenshot is not from static.mybet.com.

Does this sound like your experience, you most likely have some adware installed on your computer that pops up the static.mybet.com ads. Don't blame the people that owns the web site you were at, the advertisements are probably not coming from that site, but from the adware that's running on your machine.

I'll try help you to remove the static.mybet.com popups in this blog post.

I found the static.mybet.com pop-up on one of the lab computers where I have some adware running. I've talked about this in some of the previous blog posts. The adware was installed on purpose, and from time to time I check if something new has appeared, such as pop up windows, new tabs in the browsers, injected ads on web site that usually don't show ads, or if some new files have been saved to the hard-drive.

static.mybet.com was registered on 1997-07-14.

So, how do you remove the static.mybet.com pop-up ads? On the machine where I got the static.mybet.com ads I had adware installed. I removed those adware programs with FreeFixer and that stopped the static.mybet.com pop-ups and all the other ads I was getting in Firefox.

The bad news with pop-ups like this one is that it can be initiated by many variants of adware, not just the adware on my system. This makes it impossible to say exactly what you need to remove to stop the pop-ups.

So, what can be done to solve the problem? To remove the static.mybet.com pop up ads you need to review your system for adware or other types of unwanted software and uninstall it. Here's my suggested removal procedure:

  1. Check what programs you have installed in the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Windows Control Panel. Do you see something that you don't remember installing or that was recently installed?

  2. How about your add-ons you have in your browsers. Anything in the list that you don't remember installing?

  3. Please also try to disable the web browser proxy and the system proxy on your system. Did that stop the pop ups?

  4. If that does not help, you can give FreeFixer a try. FreeFixer is built to assist users when manually tracking down adware and other types of unwanted software. It is a freeware utility that I've been working since 2006 and it scans your machine at lots of locations where unwanted software is known to hook into your computer. If you would like to get additional details about a file in FreeFixer's scan result, you can just click the More Info link for that file and a web page with a VirusTotal report will open up, which can be very useful to determine if the file is safe or malware:

  5. As a last resort you can block static.mybet.com in the Windows HOSTS file.
