Can anyone help please. Following the arrival and then removal of a lot of spy/adware, I was left with the issue that as soon as I connected to the internet, the PC connected automatically to somewhere and exchanged huge amounts of info (5000 wireless packets a minute !). Have now discovered the offending IP address is 208.72.169.54 which SpySweeper finds and disconnects me from - after some minutes. Can I block that IP address ? How do I find the spyware on my PC that it is connecting it to ? (Ad-aware keeps crashing on me so is no help) Suggestions please - many thanks.
