I’m not sure if this is malware related but I just downloaded glasswire two days ago got recommended by a friend and he told me you can see what’s going on on you computer and stuff so I downloaded it to my surprise that NT Kernal & system connecting to random hosts all over the world and also other computers I think and also windows hosts services, it’s about 184 hosts it’s connecting to so not sure and also a couple days ago some guy on discord threatened to get into my computer and rat it not sure if that has anything to do with it I already ran malwarebytes and it didn’t find anything I just want to know if that’s normal and if it’s possible for that guy that threatened me to get into my pc and rat it and also I’m not sure if he got my Ip he said he did but I just ignored him I haven’t been ddosed so he was probably all bark no bite.

More than likely all normal but please go ahead and run the following for me @Robertojr


Please run the following steps and post back the logs as an attachment when ready.
Temporarily disable your antivirus or other security software first. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans are completed.
Temporarily disable Microsoft SmartScreen to download software below if needed. Make sure to turn it back on once the scans are completed.
If you still have trouble downloading the software please click on Reveal Hidden Contents below for examples of how to allow the download.






When downloading with some browsers you may see a different style of screens that may block FRST from downloading. The program is safe and used hundreds of times a week by many users.

Example of Microsoft Edge blocking the download







  • If you already have Malwarebytes installed then open Malwarebytes and click on the Scan button. It will automatically check for updates and run a Threat Scan.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and select Scan and let it run.
  • Once the scan is completed make sure you have it quarantine any detections it finds.
  • If no detections were found click on the Save results drop-down, then the Export to TXT  button, and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If there were detections then once the quarantine has completed click on the View report button, Then click the Export drop-down, then the Export to TXT  button, and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If the computer restarted to quarantine you can access the logs from the Detection History, then the History tab. Highlight the most recent scan and double-click to open it. Then click the Export drop-down, then the Export to TXT  button, and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know in your next reply that the scanner would not run.


Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

  • Double-click to run the program
  • Accept the End User License Agreement.
  • Wait until the database is updated.
  • Click Scan Now.
  • When finished, if items are found please click Quarantine.
  • Your PC should reboot now if any items were found.
  • After reboot, a log file will be opened. Attach or Copy its content into your next reply.

RESTART THE COMPUTER Before running Step 3

Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here each time
  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.
  • On your next reply, you should be attaching frst.txt and additions.txt to your post, every time.

You might want to consider using a different DNS provider

DNS.Watch - free, no logging, DNSSEC enabled -

Google Public DNS: and

Cloudflare and

Cisco OpenDNS: and



You should uninstall this. No program or service should ever be run from the %TEMP% folder. If you want the program reinstall it to a specific folder.

S3 cpuz150; C:\WINDOWS\temp\cpuz150\cpuz150_x64.sys [44832 2021-04-16] (CPUID S.A.R.L.U. -> CPUID)


Not seeing any type of infection but we can go ahead and run another 3rd party antivirus scan to double-check. There are a few issues in the Event Logs that you may want to look at correcting.

As for programs reaching out and talking on the network it is very normal especially with the more programs you have installed. You need proof of programs or applications reaching out to known bad IP or Domain which so far the logs are not showing but you can look up the IP on your own and try to find out where they're going.

This site can help you confirm who is who




Let me have you run a different scanner to double-check. I don't expect it to find anything, but no harm in checking.

I would suggest a free scan with the ESET Online Scanner

Go to https://download.eset.com/com/eset/tools/online_scanner/latest/esetonlinescanner.exe

  • It will start a download of "esetonlinescanner.exe"
  • Save the file to your system, such as the Downloads folder, or else to the Desktop.
  • Go to the saved file, and double click it to get it started. 
  • When presented with the initial ESET options, click on "Computer Scan".
  • Next, when prompted by Windows, allow it to start by clicking Yes 
  • When prompted for scan type, Click on Full scan 
  • Look at & tick  ( select )   the radio selection "Enable ESET to detect and quarantine potentially unwanted applications"   and click on the Start scan button.
  • Have patience.  The entire process may take an hour or more. There is an initial update download.
  • There is a progress window display.
  • You should ignore all prompts to get the ESET antivirus software program.   ( e.g. their standard program).   You do not need to buy or get or install anything else.
  • When the scan is completed, if something was found, it will show a screen with the number of detected items.  If so, click the button marked “View detected results”.
  • Click The blue “Save scan log” to save the log.
  • If something was removed and you know it is a false finding, you may click on the blue ”Restore cleaned files”  ( in blue, at the bottom).
  • Press Continue when all done.  You should click to off the offer for “periodic scanning”.


Note: If you do need to do a File Restore from ESET please follow the directions below

[KB2915] Restore files quarantined by the ESET Online Scanner version 3

You need to close any currently installed or running security software so that you can run the Kaspersky software.

The logs from Microsoft look good. Nothing wrong, it only found a setting that was changed and it put it back to default.

Try restarting the computer and then try the Kaspersky tool again. I'll check back on you again in the morning
