Hi to all. I am currently using Comodo as my firewall and Avast free as my AV. My operating system is Win 7 sp1. When I open Firefox, my outbound connections will go up. I understand,but, when I go to a website it will go up to 200 connections. The highest I have ever seen was 863. I have scanned with Malwarebytes(normal and in safe mode), Superantispyware both ways, Norton power eraser, Avast, Eset, Hitman pro, Malwarebytes anti root kit, Kapersky's anti root kit, Trend Micro,s housecall and have not found anything evil lurking on my computer. When these connections are high my CPU usage will be at 100% and the computer is useless. After a couple of minutes they go down to 50 outbound and can continue using my computer. I am connected to my providers modem via an EA3500 router for the hardware firewall. I have my HP and Alienware laptop connected to said router and both exhibit the high outbound connections. I have searched the internet but couldn't peg anything to this .Any ideas?

Someone should have had you repost in another area for a deep look.

. Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.


If you cannot get DDS to work, please try this instead.

Please download RSIT by random/random from the link provided for your operating system and save it to your desktop.This tool needs to run while the computer is connected to the Internet. If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding RSIT attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  • Double-click on RSIT.exe to start the program.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Read the disclaimer and click Continue.
  • When the scan is complete, a text file named log.txt will automatically open in Notepad.
  • Another text file named info.txt will open minimized.
  • Save the log files to your desktop and copy/paste the contents of log.txt by highlighting everything and pressing Ctrl+C.
  • After highlighting, right-click, choose Copy and then paste the contents into a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here.
  • Copies of both log files are automatically saved in the C:\RSIT folder which the tool creates during the scan.
Important: Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 5 days and ALL logs are answered.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
