Gstatic Generate 204

Hi All,


I have been using my internet however at times my internet will just stop and try to redirect to  https://www.gstatic.com/generate_204   my chrome then blocks the site telling me that it is dangerous and I am at risk something to do with certificate erroros. My internet then goes down and I can't use it on my computer or mobile for about 20mins.

I first thought it was a virus as thats what came up in google search however i don't see any weird advertisements as suggested. But i have also discovered it is a google owned page as seen on this link below.

https://www.google.com/chrome/privacy/whitepaper.html

Also had the BT guy round and he didn't know. Thought it wasn't to do with BT services

Any help would be useful

Have a quick gander through this.

Is the google pop-up similar to that shown therein? If so, it is possible you could have picked up a redirect virus or some other malware.

Have you run a full virus scan recently? You could also try running Malwarebytes (it is free).

I also ran a Avast and couldn't find anything but I don't know how good anti-virus it is.

Hi Karlusha,

I ran malwarebytes and the scan only took about 2 minutes and said I was clean. Starting to think its the internet itself as it is working slowly as well? Any more suggestions
