I have this strange connection showing in my machine...

It say that the remote host is which is as i understand it my own computer but why that chinese address... I am not in China, i am in Finland... The file responsible for this seems to be the nspr4.dll in the firefox folder. Maybe my computer is part of some bigger network or something...

It seems that the address is in my host file in the entries placed by spybot search and destroy... So i think that the firefox dll wants to access that chinese address but the host file blocks it.

nspr4.dll seems to often be a part of RoboForm. Do you have RoboForm installed?

Then you can try to inactivate it in Firefox and see if the connection disappears.


Hello i dont have RoboForm installed but i have this pdf reader called foxit reader. I wonder if it has anything to do with that since i found out that it propably installs the opencandy adware. I try to uninstall and check if it still tries to connect.

Hi again,

You can also try to run Firefox without all add-ons by starting it in the following way:

Start-menu - All programs - Mozilla Firefox - Mozilla Firefox (safe mode)

It may not hurt to have your computer checked out. You can refer to this topic so the helper can review it as well.

It means that your computer is being redirected to your computer when attempting to access these sites. HpHosts and other custom host files for blocking potentially harmful sites do this. :)

I scanned with comodo cleaning essentials and it found modified mbr. It only scans about two seconds and then the program just exits but i managed to push the stop button soon as it had scanned the mbr and got a screenshot of the results screen... Maybe it's just the windows recovery console. Kaspersky's tdss killer wont detect anything.

You should follow Firefox advice to get help to investigate if there is an infected MBR and/or other infected files in the computer.
