Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, please visit this webpage for instructions for running ComboFix:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

  • When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.
  • Please post the C:\ComboFix.txt along with a new DDS log so we may continue cleaning the system.

Are you still with us?

Thank you for your concern and reply.

I apologize for the late reply. I was out of town on business. I think I have solved this problem. I ran Combo fix and then ran Gmer. Gmer found nothing suspicious. After I did this I noticed only occasionally did I get an outgoing query. I also remembered that the activity was greatest when running Utorrent. So deleted Utorrent using ZSoft uninstaller which I used when installing Utorrent. Hopefully that also removed all registry entries associated with Utorrent. So far I have had no outgoing queries at all. I will continue to watch Malwarebytes Anti- Malware for a few mores days to see if I get any outgoing queries and if not then I plan on reinstalling Utorrent and selecting a random port be used on program startup. Then I will watch again.

What is your opinion on this approach ????

Hi,

Should've mentioned that sooner.

This is our policy on P2P software:

HijackThis Forum Policy

We will not be party to obvious use of key gens, cracks, warez or other illegal means of downloading software, music, videos ect. This means no P2P evidence will be supported. Logs that show these in them, will given the option to remove the P2P items. Keygens, cracks, warez and similar will have the thread closed period. It's theft and against the law.

If you reinstall it, I can't offer my assistance anymore.
