Hello,

 

My computer was heavily infected by loads of malware and viruses. I tried a couple of anti malware with no luck. So I thought I could do with a fresh installation of windows. I formatted drive C and installed this windows 7 of mine. but some messages keep badgering me that some remote computers are trying to connect and I don't know whether this is an infection or merely it's how windows works.

 

I want to point out again that I have formatted drive C before installing the new windows and I also have checked all other drives by Eset smart security which found no threats. Is it possible that my computer is still infected after all of this?

 

I use Windows 7 x64 on an ssd drive (there's also an OEM drive which I'm not sure if it can be infected).

 

I have uploaded a screenshot of the message on google drive in which you can see some more details:

Am I infected?! please help. thank you very much.

The IP address in the screen shot belongs to Telegram Messenger, which is an app in the Google Play store.

 

If you have it installed, that explains it.

Yes I have installed it. I kept denying the connection though but the messanger worked alright. I wonder why it is trying to connect. but anyway, it must be safe to allow it.

thank you for your reply!
