Hi

OK, thanks for the info.

I think easiest way to find out here what is going on is to install firewall.

I assume that some file connects to that site sometimes and firewall might help with that.

Install one and tell me if some suspicious file tries to access internet and firewall (and maybe avast!) warns about it.

Looking over your log, it seems you don't have any evidence of a third party firewall.

As the term conveys, a firewall is an extra layer of security installed onto computers, which restricts access to systems from the outside world. Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders. I want you to download a free firewall NOW from one of these excellent vendors:

1) Comodo
2) Online Armor
3) Sunbelt/Kerio
4) Agnitum
5) ZoneAlarm (uncheck ZoneAlarm Spy Blocker during installation if you choose this one)

If you are using the built-in Windows XP firewall, it is not recommended as it does not block outgoing connections. This means that any malware on your computer is free to "phone home" for more instructions. Simply put, Windows XP contains a mediocre firewall. This firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution. Remember to use only one firewall at the same time.

Hi

Open Comodo.

Go to Firewall and Advanced.

Choose Network Security Policy.

And tell me which applications are listed there.

Hi

Then we do this:

Go to start - run

Type this: notepad C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and click ok

A file should open.

You should see this entry:

127.0.0.1 localhost

Add this entry after that:

127.0.0.1 77.245.61.232

Click Save. And tell me if it helped :)

i tried the ip thing and clearing my cache.
it seems that the only time the problem occurs is when i open my firefox.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
