So I made a post in networking, then was told to make one in malware removal. However I wanted to know more about it here. I usually update my PC every few weeks or so, keeping windows update and the like disabled until I need them. I got it to check for updates, and netsvcs made connections. One was to an IP microsoft own, so that is normal, as it was updates I was checking for. However the other one was to mail.FGSfurnishings.co.uk. Now this seems very unusual to me, and I haven't seen it do this before. Any ideas what could be going on here? I haven't seen this connection before or since. No strange programs are running in memory, and I can't fine any files that would suggest Malware. Avast and Malwarebytes turned up nothing. Any ideas?

OK so according to the Malware forum I do not appear to be infected. Anyone know why this happened then?

The MRL topic is still open.

 

I am closing this Win 7 topic, pending completion of the MRL topic.
