Getting lots of website blocked notifications

Recommended Posts

My wife's computer has been flashing lots of "Website blocked" notifications.  She notified me yesterday, and looking at the logs, it's been happening since at least early January.  The most recent notifications are associated with this IP address:  I ran scans on both Malwarebytes Premium 3.0.6 and Windows Defender (for Win10) and neither identified a threat.  However, I'm concerned with the number and frequency of these suspicious outbound connections.

What should my next steps be?

Do you have Private Internet Access installed by any chance?  I used to get these a lot, and traced it to something PIA does.  They eventually went away, and had been gone for months until Malwarebytes updated Sunday.  Now I'm seeing them again.

Thanks for the confirmations.   If we don't want to create an exclusion, is there any way to continue blocking a particular IP, but NOT generate a pop-up when it does?  Basically an exclusion for the pop-up.   Normally I'd want to see the pop-up, but not for a nuisance IP that we expect. 

The other question would be for PIA I guess. I wonder if they can let us turn off that particular server.
