In the Event Viewer/System, I keep finding a Warning (event 4226):

 

Tcpip

TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.

 

Am I infected?

It's possible.  In short, Internet explorer (as an example) limits current connections to 10.

This can be due to many different things.

The way to tell is to perform some independent scans - in case your current protection has been compromised (from this link:  https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA15-286A ):

 

       F-Secure

       https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/home_global/online-scanner (link is external)

       McAfee

       http://www.mcafee.com/uk/downloads/free-tools/stinger.aspx (link is external)

       Microsoft

       http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx (link is external)

       Sophos

       https://www.sophos.com/en-us/products/free-tools/virus-removal-tool.aspx (link is external)

       Trend Micro

       http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ (link is external)

The above are examples only and do not constitute an exhaustive list. The U.S. Government does not endorse or support any particular product or vendor.

Then, If infected, I'd suggest posting over in the Am I Infected forum:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
Please read the pinned topics at the top of the forum for instructions on how to post there.

HI, I tried all of them and no threats found. Clean.

 

After that, I kept receiving the warning regarding the Tcpip (event 4226).

What should I do now?

So, it appears that you're not infected.

Then it can be a couple of things:

- a corrupted program

- a deliberate program

- a problem with Internet Explorer

 

Let's try looking at these reports:

1)  Please provide this information (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
 

You also may want to post over in the Networking forums to get some of their expert advice:    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/21/networking/

Most of my advice is based on later versions of Windows

You'll have to manually look through the System and Application log files (the Admin logfile is just a collection of entries from other logfiles).

 

As for the other reports (from the first item), try this:

 

MSINFO32:
Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Also, save a copy as a .txt file and include it also (it's much more difficult to read, but we have greater success in getting the info from it).

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type (or copy/paste) "msinfo32 /nfo %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter.  Then navigate to Desktop to retrieve the TEST.NFO file.  If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.  Then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

systeminfo:
Please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type (or copy/paste) "systeminfo.exe >%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\systeminfo.txt" (without the quotes) and press Enter.  Then navigate to Desktop to retrieve the syteminfo.txt file.  If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.  Then zip up the .txt file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.  I can't recall if this one works in XP or not - give it a try.

I tried all 3 commands in Run... but none work. The first time I tried msinfo32.exe, I got a message saying that the service is closed and need to be opened (something like that).
