First, my machine has no obvious signs of infection. Malwarebytes comes up negative as do AdAware and Spybot S&D. Similarly GMER finds nothing. Awhile back I had to combat an infection and used ComboFix and eventually all came back clean.
When I start up my machine, (XP Sp3) before opening anything. I often open up a command window and do a NETSTAT -a
I notice an http connection to pp.melbourneit.com.au opening up. I'm not sure why.
Some of the stuff that starts up with windows which makes some connections for updates etc. include:
Hamachi (starts OFFLINE)
Creative Labs updaters
I think I have managed to trace all the IP's in the Netstat output corresponding to these, but I DON'T know where the pp.melbourneit.com.au comes from. I know they are a huge ISP and have many many domains, but I have also seen them listed on a few blacklists, so I wonder what is going on.
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
