I have the following problem. Two applications wualcts.exe and ntoskrnl.exe are trying to connect to a remote server. One being devilsdawn.fw.nu and the other black.fearme.us I'm thinking this is a trojan, but I could be wrong. I scanned my system with Trojan Hunter and it didn't find anything. My AV (AVG Free) doesn't pick up anything either. What should I do in this situation? Here is a screen capture
The good thing is that Sygate is blocking it. I would suggest you post an Hijack This Log (see the pinned instructions at the appropriate forum about how to do download and run it); one of the experts can take a look at it and make suggestions for the removal of these problems. Be sure to include what you have discovered or link to your post above.
