    I am running windows 7 ultimate and recently I have started getting a strange message when I boot up. The message is " Gcli is an experiment to create a highly usable command line for web developers. For a list of commands type help, or to show/ hide command hints press F1/escape. Got it!" Any suggestions on the orgin and steps to remove will be appreciated.

    Please, observe following rules:

    • Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad.
    • The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I ran scans using Norton Internet Security and Malwarebytes which did not find anything.
    I restored the computer using a restore point earlier than the occurrence of the message which seems to have fixed the problem.

    I know this is an old thread, but it's the second google result for this message, so, just a heads up, this is not a virus or malware of any sort, and no scans need to be performed.

    This is firefox's developer command line. Press Shift+F2 to toggle it, or click the X on the right to close it.
