Hello :)

Some 3-4 days ago I've downloaded a little program call Ip-Getter (my friend had his msn hacked and I wanted to check where the hacker is from, not really important..) it of course had some virus in it, which I don't remember and Avast log doesn't show it either, Avast deleted it. But from that point on I had a Unknown process running in Currports and Tcpview (in tcpview its called [ System Process ]) opening and closing randomly and connecting to different IPs all the time. Most of them connect to harmless IPs like google network but this is bugging me because I can't tell where it's coming from and how to stop it.
Maybe I'm missing something or just worried for nothing but I want to get to the bottom of this.

Some specs and what I've done:
Windows 7 Ultimate
Antivirus AVAST

I used:
online scanner - Trendmicro and F-secure
Hijack this
Maleware Anti Bytes
GMER

..and nothing. Can't figure what the heck is this process.

Hope you can assist. Thanks.

Ignore this post or completely delete it. I've got it figured out, somehow I didn't Google the right keywords. Sorry!
