The moment I installed Malwarebytes, there has been this pesky pop-up bobbing up and down on my desktop. I have included the link to the screenshot below:
That's actually MBAM doing it's job.
The website that you computer was attempting to navigate to is considered malicious site and that's why you got the window. It was blocking access to it. According to the IP, that address is to a site in the Russian Federation. If that is a legitimate site that you meant to go to, you can always press the Exclude Website
button and it will not come up again when you attempt to navigate to it.
If you didn't attempt to navigate to it, please let me know and we'll take another look to make sure everything is ok.
Now for some good news, your logs are Clean!
Let's remove my tools and update some programs. I also have some information to help protect you in the future. Step 1: Tool Removal with Delfix and Creation of a clean restore point
- Download Delfix from here

I recommend keeping Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
installed. Make sure to update it and run it at least once a week. If it finds things such as PUP's (Potentially Unwanted Programs) you can delete those with no worries. However, if it finds something like a trojan, come see us.Step 2: Program UpdatesA word about Java
Java has become the #1
program exploited by thieves and hackers as of today. It's gotten so bad, the Department of Homeland Security recently recommended that users disable Java on their machines.
For more information regarding this, see the two articles below:Forbes: US Department of Homeland Security Calls on user do disable JavaUS warns on Java software
Unless you have software on your machine that absolutely requires Java, I highly recommend you completely remove it from your system.
If you do have software that requires it, then disable it until such time as it's needed by those programs.
