I get a popup from Malwarebytes every 3 minutes telling me it blocked a malicious website that was inbound. First it said it was from uTorrent, then svchost. I have since uninstalled uTorrent and removed all data from uTorrent. I just ran RKill and am doing a Threat Scan now. RKill said it found no issues  or malicious services. Am I getting false positives or is there something else I need to remove?

Hello and :welcome::

IP blocks are to be expected when running P2P software, as explained here: Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block BitTorrent or other Peer-to-Peer Programs?

They mean that MBAM is doing its job.

And, even without such software, INBOUND blocks probing one's system do happen from time to time; they are a fact of life.  MBAM or your firewall should stop them.

However, if you are still getting IP block notifications, ESPECIALLY if they are outbound and/or happening without any browser or P2P software running, then it's possible you might be infected. If that's the case, the safest course of action would be to head over to the malware removal section of the forum for a bit of free, expert guided help checking for malware.

First, please start with the advice here: Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the preliminary steps to expedite the process.
A trained expert will guide you through scanning and cleanup.

Thank you,
