My computer has been turned off for two weeks. When I turned it back on, it almost immediately started giving me a MWB "Website Blocked" box, with an outbound protocol. It comes up with the same IP. domain and filename every time, but a different port. It has ben popping up for over an hour now. I did a scan and it came up empty. I found the file, but cannot delete it. I seemed to rename it, but the new name started coming up o the box. I moved it and that didn't help. I can't find any info at all on the file or the listed website.

I don't want to add it to the exclusion list until I know what the heck it is. The box opop up every ten seconds or so, stays for 4 or 5 seconds, then drops off. It's been going on for a couple hours now. Can anyone help?

If you are being helped/have solved the issue/no longer wish to continue, notify me in your reply and I will quickly close this thread. Failing to comply will result in denial of future assistance.
  • Please do not install any new software while we are working on this system as it may hinder our process.

Thank you for your reply. As of this morning, the outgoing attempts are not showing up. Or, at least I am not getting the MWB alert.  Yesterday, Skype wanted to do an update. I was busy on it, so clicked the "remind me later" button. Last night, I clicked the Update button and let Skype do the update, then went to bed. This morning, the alerts have stopped. So I am kind of guessing that the alerts might have been related to the Skype update.

MWB has helped me twice before with issues I couldn't resolve. Both times we were (YOU were) successful. I am  a premium member for that reason. I have always been VERY happy with MWB and the help offered. I recommend MWB to others every chance I get

Thank you for offering to help me. At this time I am going to call this resolved. Thanks again,

Walt Brown
