I might have a trojan or false positive?

Today I noticed AVG E-Mail Scanner show this "AutoPOP3: Connecting to IP.adsl.totbb.net"
I thought I might of had a virus of some sort so I updated AVG and did a full system scan, and nothing was found, Spy Sweeper also found nothing and currently I am doing a Ad-Aware scan and will also do HouseCall Free Online Scan as well. Just in case I did have one, I set AVG Firewall to block all POP from local ports to port 110 (so nothing can be sent)
Someone in the Live Chat suggested it might be someone scanning my IP Range or something?
Can anyone suggest anything else I can do?

EDIT: I done the Ad-Aware and HouseCall Online scan, and nothing was found. I also removed "DivX Web Player" since it seems to have started about an hour after I installed it, I also did a registry clean as well. AVG's E-Mail Scanner has not been activated within the last hour ( I checked my Firewall Logs) so I hope I either fixed it or it was a scan of my IP Range.

EDIT: Problem seems to be fixed :whistling:
