This is active all the time on my PC. I did have NTL, but Virgin Media are now my servers and Broadband suppliers. The program uses CFD.exe and is always operating, even under listening. TCP out shows Source = 18.104.22.168 (my IP) + 4 digit port. There were 9 items listed on my last check and all different ports. The Destination = 22.214.171.124.443 in all cases. Bytes in = 60B Bytes out = 391B This program and it`s activity is never picked up by my security system as intrusive. It is said to be a diagnostic tool for trouble shooting, installed automatically by NTL when my first Broadband was installed. What use is this program - I cannot see it is any use at all, it does no harm, but it does not seem to do any good. Can I either disable it or uninstall it ? Constantly info. going out all the time, looks highly like a spy to me. Any offers please ? ------------ PLEASE NOTE EVERYBODY ;- ** I have blocked this program with my Comodo Pro Firewall. I have NOT uninstalled it. This has stopped all activity by CFD.exe and I have not noticed ANY adverse effects. All systems are working normally. Has not made any difference at all, except the data that this parasite was sending to some place not known by me, has been stopped. Seems a perfect solution for all to follow rather than uninstall and perhaps hit problems.
