213.251.176.216

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

213.251.176.216. What is it? Whois says IP address or domain not found.

I keep getting the balloon warning me about an infection, sometimes every minute or so, and sometimes not for hours.

I've scanned several times for infections using different programs - nothing found.

It pops up even when I'm not browsing, I've deleted all temp. files, emptied cache etc. makes no difference.

Any thoughts, can I just get Malwarebytes to just stop showing the message without turning the protection off?

Cheers

If you are not accessing anything there deliberately (whether via browser, IM or P2P program), I'd strongly advise getting your machine checked for infection via the following;
