I have two security software programs on my Windows XP computer (not counting the Windows firewall configured for its strictest setting). One is Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware Pro, and the other, just recently installed, is ESET Smart Security. I thought I had all the bases covered. Late this morning the Malwarebytes icon in the system tray started popping up messages like "Blocked attempt to contact malicious website at 192.10.443. Category: outgoing." These were happening about every five seconds. If that wasn't bad enough, this occurred after ESET had run a scheduled scan of the RAM and both hard drives. So, I thought, let's see, Smart Security is an anti-virus and anti-spyware program. This is a malware issue. So I had MBAM run a scan, not the quick scan option, but the check-every-single-thing option of both drives. Results: 0. Whatever was trying to establish an outside connection quit after about 45 minutes. But I don't know why none of my paid-for software found anything? And before someone asks me this, no I'm not running peer-to-peer software right now. Any tips?
