IP address blocked / outbound / svchost.exe

Recommended Posts

So, whenever I open my web browser (Opera, ADBLOCKER installed), malewarebytes pops up and tells me:


IP address is blocked

Type: Outbound

Process: Windows/system32/svchost.exe


Sometimes I don't even need to open the browser, and it still keeps on telling me over and over again that the IP address is blocked. The same thing happens e.g. when I switch from one tab to another etc.


I have scanned multiple times with different programmes (Kaspersky TDSSKiller, Hitman, Avira, and ofc malwarebytes and I even used CCleaner), but none of them found anything.

Since I have read about DNS changing viruses disguising as svchost.exe, I've scanned the file just to make sure, still nothing.


The IP address belongs to DIMLINE Ltd. from Austria. I guess I will have to send them a report?

Since I don't really know about all the technical stuff and what to search for, I'm getting really desperate. Especially since it's hard to take in so much information reading as many posts as possible here on the forum. Apparently, similar things have happened to others, but I couldn't find any clear instructions.


Thank you so much for your help! I don't want to throw my laptop in the bin just yet  :unsure:
