Running Windows Vista Home Premium with SP2

For past few days, whenever IE or Chrome are used, my licensed copy of Malwarebytes successfully blocks attempts to connect to potentially malicious websites at IP address 66.150.14.*** about every 2 minutes. I assume this is some sort of virus - however, full and flash scan by Malwarebytes finds nothing. Neither do Norton 360 nor Windows Defender.

I did notice this started about same time as my Garmin Lifetime Maps updater stopped working. I attempted to uninstall the Lifetime Maps updater thinking it might have something to do with this virus, but I am unable to uninstall it.

Any ideas as to how I can get rid of this?

Thank you!
