For a while now, Malwarebytes would block outbound connections to odd sites like mama.cn or cy-pr.com, among others. This would happen with no interactions on my part, I would leave it idle and this may occur once or twice a day every time I use it. I've done a full system scan with Malwarebytes and Avast, but both have turned up nothing. 
 
Virus definitions and programs are up to date, running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit, Service Pack 2
 
Please let me know if there's any other information that I need to provide.
 
Thanks

What this is telling you is that something on your computer is calling out to those domains. Given the recurring nature of calls from your computer that is symptomatic of a malware infection that is not being detected. It could also be something related to a web browser setting (malicious plugin, malicious homepage, etc.)
