Hello and welcome, thehanz123: :)

IP blocks can indicate a number of things:

  • They could indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.

  • In some cases the blocks are a false positive.

  • However, they can also be a sign of infection, especially if the blocks are outgoing and they occur when no browsers are open.

--> There is more information about the IP blocking module in the helpdesk topic here: What does it mean when I get an IP alert about blocking a 'malicious' site?, and in the FAQ - Section G.

They also contain instructions on how to determine what process might be trying to make the connections.

You may also research the IP in question at www.ip-lookup.net or a similar site.

On the other hand, if you think the IP blocks might be a false positive, then please read this sticky topic before starting a new topic in the False Positives forum.

Alternatively, if you think you might be infected, based on the IP blocks and/or other suspicious computer behavior, then please read the following for the available options to have a malware expert assist you with cleaning process: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

i dont think its a false positive because i looked up some of the ip addresses and they said they mess with gmail accounts and other stuff. but last week my gmail warned me of an intruder and made me change my password.

the pop up comes every 5 seconds now, and some times its stacked 2 or 3 on top of each other with different ip addreses.

thanks for the help daledoc1, i am going to start reading up right now.
