I had a problem with my email last week-it kept getting an AVG error that said "Connecting to bas5 quebec 14-1177836747.dst bell.ca" Broni (thanks again Broni) on this forum duided me thru till it was killed. I now have another curly one. When I use Mozilla Firefox to access the web I have found it sloooow. When ever I selected a favourite it would begin to load then the same message would always appear in the status bar saying "Connecting to 188.8.131.52" When I checked with Malwarebytes, nothing found (log attached) When I opened Superantispyware for a second opinion it told me my browser home page had changed from "http:/google.com" to "http:/google.com/" I removed the "/ " from after com & found all searches were back to normal with good speed HOWEVER I still get this message in status bar Connecting to 184.108.40.206 after I get the site I was wanting. I have googled the address & it appears on 3 blacklists but I cant find any other info on it. I have run a Malwarebytes scan, TFC & DDS.Logs for Malwarebytes & DDS attached. GMER also ran but locked up both in normal operation & safe mode so no logs.
