Please help, computer keeps trying to connect to 208.73.210.29


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, earlier I tried to watch a video on Internet Explorer (I normally use firefox) and a message popped up from AVG saying it had protected me from a recent threat. I thought all was well but then later when clicking on links through a search engine, I got taken to weird sites that were not at all what I had clicked on. So I did a scan and was infected with a trojan called generic_rs (I think it was rs?). I did a system restore because someone suggested it to me and thought all was again well, but now Malware bytes is telling me that it is blocking an outgoing connection to 208.73.210.29. I followed the instructions and attached the DDS log and the "attach" file. Any help would be extremely appreciated as I have no idea what I am doing! Thank you so much.

I should add that this only happens when I try to visit a blog from blogger (blogspot.com) that I read frequently with no problems. Thanks again.

Hello,

Would you advise if you have resolved your issues or if you have sought help elsewhere?

If not resolved and you are not already seeking help elsewhere, I'd like for you to rerun a new (fresh) DDS and Copy & Paste the DDS.txt into a new reply.

Anyone other than original-poster who has similar issues, do not reply here. Start your own topic.
