mbam blocking "potentially malicious website 208.73.210.29" sometimes several times per minute. Hasn't done it for a little while now. The scan doesn't show anything. I followed the instructions for defogger, DDS & GMER Rootkit Scanner wouldn't run. I have posted two log files. Anyway, I don't know if this is something I should worry about or just put on the MBAM ignore list, but from the previous posts about this topic it looked like something to deal with.

Please don't attach the scans / logs from these scans, use "copy/paste".

DO NOT use any TOOLS such as Combofix or HijackThis fixes without supervision.

Doing so could make your pc inoperatible and could require a full reinstall of your OS, losing all your programs and data.

Vista and Windows 7 users:

1. These tools MUST be run from the executable. (.exe) every time you run them

2. With Admin Rights (Right click, choose "Run as Administrator")

Stay with this topic until I give you the all clean post.

You might want to print these instructions out.

Note: Close all browsers before running ATF Cleaner: IE, FireFox, etc.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.

I don't know how to log into the router. I know what the modem is but I'm not sure what the router is. I thought the router was the computer the ISP used.

On the link you gave me they say,"If you don't know the address[for the router], open cmd and type..." I don't know what they mean by "open cmd"

Do you have a router or just a modem?

Lets see if this does the trick

Go to Start->Run->Type CMD and click Ok. The MSDOS Window will be displayed. At the command prompt, type the following and press Enter after each line:

IPCONFIG /release

IPCONFIG /flushdns

IPCONFIG /renew

IPCONFIG /registerdns

Type in Exit and reboot.

Let me know how it's running.

I have only seen the pop up balloon once today (before that last set of instructions you gave me), and I've been on the computer most of the day working. So, I could wait to see if it comes up again and let you know. I assume the last set of instructions were to take the place of the others in the link you sent me to? So, I don't need to go through the instructions below?

How to fix:

1.Log into your router. If you don

It was a nightmare with Frontier. I would not recommend people use their live chat option for tech support which I did because I had to wait so long on hold for phone help. I won't explain. Anyway, the phone help could have worked except I took the other advice and did a hard reset which according the the phone tech (when I finally called back and waited on hold for 45 min out of desperation) was probably more than I needed to do. Anyway, I ran the steps above to check my IPCONFIG and the ftrdhcpuser.net is still in there. I don't know if I will have any further problems or not. I haven't yet, but the annoying pop up was infrequent and intermittent the day I did the hard reset anyway. I only saw it once that day compared to several times per minute on other days. So, we'll see! Thanks for your help.

The response was to do a hard reset to fix the problem. I did that and had to deal with getting my internet connection back after that, and after 3 hrs of hassle with the phone because my cordless phone died twice while on hold and I had to get back in line, I talked to their tech and told him the problem and he just said "hmmm" when I told him about the ..puser.net thing in the IPCONFIG. He didn't offer to check the settings to see if it was still there and I assumed the hard reset dealt with it. I don't know, but it doesn't seem to be a problem for now.
