Hi,

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 that is running windows 7 on it.  I have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on my computer and it keeps popping up this message:

malicious website blocked:  IP, 66.45.56.109, and then it looks like a zipcode following that (that changes each time the pop up comes up), outbound, c:\windows\explorer.exe

I ran a scan with Malwarebytes and nothing comes up, yet the popup keeps happening. 

Please advise.

On one hand ip blocking software can be unreliable. Malicious web sites change frequently but on the other hand explorer.exe has no business accessing the internet.
