In my firewall exceptions under the network connection settings i have the name "Teredo" listed and marked. When I restart Windows or sometimes randomly a flicker of a message will show from windows security saying "your computer might be at risk..." so I looked and Teredo and was listed there. Is this suppose to be there? If so, what is it? If not, how do I get rid of it? Thank you for your help

I'd never heard of Teredo before, but it appears to be an IPv4 to IPv6 encapsulation method.

I'm not sure whether this is indicative of a security breach or not. Anyone have experience with Toredo?

Is this a work computer? If it is then maybe the local IT department set this up for some reason.

Whoops! I didn't realize you had a HJT log posted.

Since you already have a log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

The BC Staff
