Outbound website connection blocked


Recommended Posts

This started yesterday, I allowed malwarebytes to block the connection, then ran both it and avast separately as administrator to try to find any possible infections.
Nothing came up, and I thought it was fine so I went on with what I was doing, watching youtube, looking at an email, etc. Starting today I keep getting this blocked
outgoing connection, which was the same as yesterday.

Thanks for those logs, continue as follows:

Download attached fixlist.txt file (end of reply) and save it to the Desktop, or the folder you saved FRST into. "Do not open that file"
NOTE. It's important that both FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

Open FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or the folder it was ran from. Please post it to your reply.

    Note: If restart is required to finish the cleaning process, you should click Reboot. If reboot isn't required, please re-boot your computer manually.

Download Sophos Free Virus Removal Tool and save it to your desktop.

If your security alerts to this scan either accept the alert or turn off your security to allow Sophos to run and complete.....

Please Do Not use your PC whilst the scan is in progress.... This scan is very thorough so may take several hours...
  • Double click the icon and select Run
  • Click Next
  • Select I accept the terms in this license agreement, then click Next twice
  • Click Install
  • Click Finish to launch the program
  • Once the virus database has been updated click Start Scanning

  • Copy and paste the results in your reply
  • Close the Notepad document, close the Threat Details screen, then click Start cleanup
  • Click Exit to close the program
  • If no threats were found please confirm that result....

The Virus Removal Tool scans the following areas of your computer:
  • Memory, including system memory on 32-bit (x86) versions of Windows
  • The Windows registry
  • All local hard drives, fixed and removable
  • Mapped network drives are not scanned.

Note: If threats are found in the computer memory, the scan stops. This is because further scanning could enable the threat to spread. You will be asked to click Start Cleanup to remove the threats before continuing the scan.

Let me see those logs, also tell me if there are any remaining issues or concerns...

Thank you,

Alright, all but Sophos gave me a .txt. I've named the zemana one by adding it's name to the .txt name.

Sophos came back with no threats found, adwcleaner came up with a few false positives on some stuff I trust but removed anyway, and zemana showed two things and I let it clean those.

My system boots up like it usually does, a little slow because I have a couple of games and whatnot(idles for programming, etc), and it shuts down just fine. Firefox runs like it usually does and has been for a few years. Sometimes it won’t properly close and I have to end it with task manager but that’s been going on before the redirect attempts malwarebytes keeps blocking. Also the redirects seem to be sweeping available ports to find a way to connect out.

Download RogueKiller and save it on your desktop, ensure to download correct version..

  • Click "Start Scan" to begin the analysis. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan is complete, click the "Open TXT" button to display the scan report.

Right now it seems like the outbound IP blocks have stopped. If they come back or don't, I'll update one last time some time tomorrow. Thank you so much for the help.

Also, if I were to keep the programs you've suggested installed, would they possibly cause conflicts or should I remove them? If they don't conflict, would it be a good idea to keep these and scan with all of them ever so often?

Thanks for the update, yes please post back to confirm if the IP blocks have ceased... Regarding tools we`ve used, I always prefer that they are removed to make sure there is no conflict with your system/security....

Delete RogueKiller portable from your Desktop, also delete this folder: C:\ProgramData\RogueKiller


Uninstall Sophos AV and Zemana http://www.askvg.com/how-to-completely-uninstall-remove-a-software-program-in-windows-without-using-3rd-party-software/

Also remove this folder if still present: C:\ProgramData\Sophos


Download "Delfix by Xplode" and save it to your desktop.

Or use the following if first link is down:

"Delfix link mirror"

If your security program alerts to Delfix either, accept the alert or turn your security off.

Double Click to start the program. If you are using Vista or higher, please right-click and choose run as administrator

Make Sure the following items are checked:

  • Remove disinfection tools <----- this will remove tools we may have used.
  • Purge System Restore <--- this will remove all previous and possibly exploited restore points, a new point relative to system status at present will be created.
  • Reset system settings <--- this will reset any system settings back to default that were changed either by us during cleansing or malware/infection

Now click on "Run" and wait patiently until the tool has completed.

The tool will create a log when it has completed. We don't need you to post this.

Any remnant files/logs from tools we have used can be deleted…

The articles definitely were helpful, and the outbound blocked ip connections are no longer happening. I was honestly wondering if there was more than just avast as trustworthy antivirus and the first article helped with that.
Is there any that you might personally recommend other than avast?

Also, thank you so much for all of your help. I would not have been able to figure out how to remove that problem by myself
