Thanks to all who volunteer here. A month ago I had to get rid of a Fake Rean trojan; do not know if this related or not. Anyway, Geeks on call ran Combofix and MBAM and it seemed to clear it out. Immediately cloned the disk. So I have recent "clean" system if all else fails.

I bought MBAM pro and this weekend it started reporting it was blocking malicious site . Good enough. Ran full scans with MSE, MBAM and SASW. Nothing found although SASW did find tracking cookies I deleted. Ran these in safe mode with networking.

I would like to kill whatever is attempting to make the connection uninitiated by me. I am unwilling to see where it goes because the Geek On Call guy told me an awful lot of malware is now being pushed and that nothing is required other than to be in the wrong place.

Thanks in advance.
