    Maybe stay off of youtube for a while, or activate Noscript

    According to Noscript [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] this script is all over youtube (I haven't allowed it) with a filter over each video, since a couple days ago. Google says it's malware.

    This could be an add-on that is trying to hijack your browser. I don't think YouTube would ever put this on their site...

    Those commercial antivirus are garbage. Most will just slow your computer down. I know ESET is a good paid one, but the rest I can't say the same.

    I use the one that comes with Windows, Windows Defender. To remove your malware/virus I recommend getting MalwareBytes (the free one) which seems to be the best for removing. After using it you can uninstall and just stick with Windows Defender.

    I use the pay MalwareBytes already and it isn't picking anything up.
    I also checked my addons and extensions and I don't see anything out of the ordinary.

    x.vindcosuite.com seems to be "passive DNS replicator", which may be performing a genuine function; but apparently buggy software at sitemeter results in pages with sitemeter counting code on them getting redirected there.

    I've been seeing intermittent flashes of this sort of thing from sitemeter for over a year, and during that same period of time, the company has failed to respond to repeated questions directed at their "support" team.

    As of yesterday evening, the problem was categorical rather than intermittent, so I removed the sitemeter code from the WordPress theme, and the problem went away.

    As far as I can tell, this is a symptom of incompetence rather than malice, but in any case, sitemeter is clearly more trouble than it's worth."

    But youtube obvious isn't a blog. So does it use sitemeter? Is that the issue?

    A google search let me to mozilla ad on search reset which at least for now seems to have fixed it!
