Win 8.1


This is partly a different issue than posted (and not acknowledged) in Malware forum:


I usually disable dnsclient service because of strange connections when it's running.  However I *have* to enable it when I use Windows update -- will not work without it.  Also BITS, winhhtp proxy and WU are disabled until I choose to update.  This is the

reason why.


1)Windows update download stalls at 62%.


2)Many connections to weird ips - anything from drupal.com to maildesignmedia.com (20+ connections with data)


3)Svchost Dcomlaunch  (which also has Plug&Play) shows

--Tiworker -- embedded

--explorer.exe -- immersive and --embedded    C;|windows\explorer.exe  /factory....  (re-enables after process kill)

--dllhosts -- one is Connection Manager Lua Host Object -- netshell.dll

--2 instances of WmiPrvSe.exe running from root/wmi and cimv2 providers.


Any help is appreciated.
