This is a weird problem and Im not really sure what to do. I've been having problems getting "Tribes Ascend" to connect to the update server on my computer and the only solution seemed to be malware blocking ports. I tried a few different port scans on different sites, but the scans timed out due to the ports being "blocked". the scans even reported that port 80 was blocked, even though i am able to access the internet. I ran Combofix, which deleted some stuff but didnt fix the problem I think the problem may be connected to the ports. Whenever I try to run a port scan on any of the major sites it says not connected or that ALL of my ports are closed... Which cant really be true if I'm using the net right now. Anyone have any idea of what this is or how to fix it? Im assuming some piece of malware is blocking my computer from port scans somehow. Any ideas? Starting Points? Theres a chance my problem may not even be the port thing, but it does seem like a good possibility to me...

used Rkill.
MB came up empty.
Then used ComboFix (I don't think I'm allowed to post the log in this forum but I can if it would be useful).

I'm pretty pretty handy with CMD, Networking, and a lot of standard IT programs... so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Combofix is not a toy and not for everyday use.
ComboFix SHOULD NOT be used unless requested by a forum helper

Since you have run Combofix without Supervision :nono: ..


Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
