I use Win 7 (64).
So I've been having a weird issue for a since this morning. I turned on my PC and opened Chrome. But it showed it then it wouldn't load (like when a program freezes. but you can see it sitting there but can't do anything). I went to processes and ended each chrome process, but the one wouldn't close. So I thought that was weird. I tried some various Chrome methods and nothing happened (reinstall..etc). So I went into Firefox and it loaded. But I couldn't access sites like yahoo, google...etc. But I could access other sites like reddit for example. I tried even on Internet Explorer (which I never use of course) and the same issue, opened some sites but not others.
So messed around for but trying system restore and things like that. Which BTW system restore had an error. I thought maybe it was Windows. But then suddenly my Malwarebytes popped up "Website blocked" and I was 255.255.255.255. Port 68. Outbound. And it says its SVChost.exe. I did check the properties of all the SVCHOSTs in the processes and all are Microsoft. Its shown this same pop up about 20 times since 4pm.
Also I did of course scan my PC using MSE and Malwarebytes and nothing was found. So you think this is a virus/rootkit/malware? Or just Windows screwing up? Oh, I did try some default things like resetting my router and the IFCONFIG stuff in the CMD window. No luck.
