    My Standard browser is trying to conect to:

    cm24-121-104-18.flagstaff.az.npgco.com:422

    Doesn't matter if Opera or IE is standard browser. The browser is not startet by me. What the hell is that?

    Hi,
    In order to get help:
    Try to elaborate as much as you can about the symptoms you experience.
    Give us information about what OS you have, when did this start to happen etc.
    The best way to deal with possible infections:
    Fully update your Windows components, browser and java.
    Use a variety of scanners (fully update) to try to clean in normal and safe mode - assuming you use legitimate software for that.
    Post a hijackthis log in an appropriate forum (try spywarewarrior.com/index.php).
    Mrk

    I run NOD32, Trojan Remover, an Ad-Aware completly over my system. Using Windows XP Home SP2, latest jva. I recocniced that by accident while i was checking some ports.

    TCPView shows following:
    Opera.exe:1576 TCP thomas-laptop:1506 cm-24-121-104-18.flagstaff.az.npgco.com:420 SYN_SENT

    Opera was not startet by me. Uninstalled Opera. IE is used for this connection.
