Hello MegaPizza and welcome to Malwarebytes,

My screen name is kevinf80, i`m here to help clean up your system. Make sure to run all scans from accounts with Administrator status, continue as follows please:

Anyone other than the original starter of this thread please DO NOT follow the instructions and advice posted as replies here, my help and advice is NOT related to your system and will probably cause more harm than good...

Change the download folder setting in the Default Browser only. so all of the tools we may use are saved to the Desktop:

Choose Settings. at the bottom of the screen click the
"Show advanced settings..." link. Scroll down to find the Downloads section and click the Change... button. Select your desktop and click OK.

In the downloads section, click the Browse button, click on the Desktop folder and the click the "Select Folder" button. Click OK to get out of the Options menu.

Click Browse and select the Desktop and then choose the Select Folder button. Click OK to get out of the download options screen and then click Close to get out of the View Downloads screen.
NOTE: IE8 Does not support changing download locations in this manner. You will need to download the tool(s) to the default folder, usually Downloads, then copy them to the desktop.

In the new window select "Location" tab > clear the text field box and type in or copy/paste %userprofile%\Desktop > select "Apply" then "OK"

Be aware you are not changing the Browser download folder location, you are changing the user’s download directory location.....

Yes i`m also very curious, hence the diagnostic scans i`ve asked you to run and post the produced logs. The scans will make no changes to your system at this point...

The IP address you quote is blacklisted, hence Malwarebytes blocks the connection attempt. Usually such connection probing can be attributed to malicious software or Browser hijackers already present on your system making outbound calls asking for an inbound connection....

If you will not post logs I cannot help.....

I appreciate that, thank you.

The inbound requests have stopped for now. I guess it was a temporary thing. I was using TeamViewer at the time. Not sure if related.

I feel more safe with MB blocking potentially harmful inbound requests than I do sharing log files where I am unsure if there is information that could compromise my computer security.

We deal with many threads each day, all have requested logs posted. I do not see any threats to you from information in logs... Obviously it is your choice to post or not post logs.... The IP being blocked is definitely malicious... I can give instructions for two good scanners to check your system, there is no need for you to post the logs, just say if they find anything... Let me know what you want to do, if you do not want to progress we can just close your thread...

Thank you,
