MBAM preventing access to dodgy IP's


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I originally posted this thread on the hijack this section but after doing a lot of stuff with Gammo on there I've been asked to re-post it here,

the problem I've got is that MBAM keeps putting a warning balloon on my screen telling me that it has successfully blocked access to various IP addresses,it's constant and about every 20 seconds.

It's annoying and slightly worrying that something in my machine is telling it to contact these addresses in the first place.

Any help at all would be realy appreciated.

Also are you using any p2p software such as LimeWire, FrostWire, Bit Torrent, etc...?

Skype?

Hello to you both,

can I first say thanks for replying to my post.

To answer your questions,I used to have vuze installed but not any more,I don't have skype.

Could there be something left behind after removing vuze which could cause this?

I also had some games which were torrents which I've also got rid of.

I ran through all of the steps for cleaning my machine and had a lot of help from one of your friendly wizards called Gammo.

I've basically deleted everything off my machine which I thought may cause this problem.

Any other ideas ? or am I going to have to re-format?

Hi -

Did you fully read section G of the FAQ that I linked and highlighted -

Including this section

Hi noknojon,

Yes I did read that section but I don't realy want to disable it because I've done some digging on a few of the IP addresses that it's blocking and some of them are porn sites and all sorts,so I don't realy want my machine contacting those places.
