What is causing the alerts?

Recommended Posts

I initially installed Malwarebytes to get rid of the Internet Security Pro malware.  I finally got rid of it (at least it seeming to take over the computer) but if I then removed Malwarebytes it immediately reappeared.  As long as I kept Malwarebytes active Internet Security Pro did not appear but until I hid the notification I was getting constant notifications of attempted communications to suspected malicious IP addresses being blocked. making me think there is some kernel still there trying to reach out and reload the virus.


Now when I run a Malware scan, Malwarebytes states that it finds no malicious threats, yet when I check the logs I see that maybe 500 blocks per day are occurring.  Almost all say the attempt came from iexplorer.exe, and often I get a notification when IE10 is not running, or at least it is not open as an active program.


My logic says that there must be some malware such as Internet Security Pro causing these attempts to contact these IP addresses (at least a couple I looked up indicated they were in the Ukraine).  If it isn't an active malware program doing this, what is so I can remove it rather than continue to waste resources continually blocking it?  If it is malware, how do I find it?


Thanks for your help.
