Hi all really hoping that someone can assist me with this as I'm begining to get a little worried now that my Internet connection is being used to do some iffy stuff.

When I connect to Firefox v3.0, Comodo lists Firefox in the connections activity section which all in all isnt a problem. What is concearning me is that it quite often lists it 17- 18 times and my internet connection has dropped from a nice 13meg connection to half a meg.

The Source ports never appear to be the same and the destinations all appear to be different also. Have run various spyware Malware programs and virus scanned and done a rootkit scan but they cant seem to locate anything.

Not sure what additional information I might need to provide (hence the noob bit) but will be happy to provide what ever is needed.

I guess my big concearn is all these connections flying out. Used to seeing 3-5 connections showing in the logs but not 17-18. Have contacted my IP and too be honest they have been kinda vague on the subject. Run virus scan we will check the server.

I have 2 comps running off the same modem and both are suffering drastic speed losses. Just did a Malwarebytes scan enclosed.

Pls pls some kind soul come save me from this as its driving me banana's.

Jonie :)

your source/destination ports are never going to be the same, its because you are using NAT (Network Address Translation) thats a part of it... What do you mean by listing 17+ times of firefox in comodo. Also how do you know you went from a 13meg to a meg, what type of testing have you done to prove this.
