I'm confused about something and hoping someone in here can clear it up. About a year ago I downloaded and used the Cyberghost VPN. After six months I got bored with it and uninstalled it. About a week ago I downloaded from Bleeping that Glasswire program. Since I'm not overly knowledgeable about computing I tend not to fully understand many of these programs, including this one. Anyway, Glasswire seems to indicate that Cyberghost.com servers in Germany and Romania are doing a lot of communicating with my computer, some files as big as 2 mb. And I'm trying to come up with any good reason why this should be. Nothing I seem to be doing seems to offer any rational explanation why they would need to communication so often--at all, really--with my computer.
Anyway, very quickly, I went into my firewall (Which I rarely do) and found something called "Check point VPN," and I'm wondering if that isn't something they installed and are still using for their own, possibly nefarius, reasons. So I disallowed that item, and hopefully it will do the trick. There's another vpn item, "f5 vpn," but that seems like something l might need, I'm not sure. I really don't know what the heck I'm doing. So, can anyone tell me why Cyberghost is taping my computer? and what I should do, if anything.
I should add, I have run about 6 different anti-maleware, including MB antiroot, and got zilch infections. So that gave me no clues.
