I several times ereased my hdd using dban and killdisk and reflashed my bios even deleted mbr but the ips are still connecting. Doesnt matter I use Windows 7 or 8. If there is a malware could it be on my wimax router? Thanks. I really need help.

This is normal behavior and doesn't mean you are infected. Akamai is a Content Delivery Network. Big sites like Yahoo and Microsoft use them to reduce the load on their own servers. Companies like Akamai place servers close to users around the world and deliver static content or large files to you.

 

If you are still concerned I would be more than happy to take a look. Just let me know.

OK, no problem. Let's have a look.

 

- General Instructions -

  • Please read all instructions and fixes thoroughly. Read the ENTIRE post BEFORE performaning any steps so you understand all that needs to be done.
  • I would advise printing any instructions for easy reference as some of the fixes may require you to boot in Safe mode. Access to these instructions may not be available in Safe Mode.
  • Any fixes provided by myself are for this log file only and should not be used on any other systems.
  • Do not run any other removal software or perform updates other than the ones I provide, as it will complicate the cleaning process.
  • You have 4 days to reply to each post or the topic will be closed. You will be able to request that the topic be re-opened by sending me a PM (Personal Message) or PM a moderator.
  • Please feel free to ask any questions, especially if you are having problems with my instructions.


- Save ALL Tools to your Desktop-

 

All tools that I have you download should be placed on the desktop unless otherwise stated. If you are familiar with how to save files to the desktop then you can skip this step.

 

Since you are continuing with this step then I assume you are unfamiliar with saving files to your desktop. As a result it's easiest if you configure your browser(s) to download any tools to the desktop by default. Please use the appropriate instructions below depending on the browser you are using.

 

Chrome.JPGGoogle Chrome - Click the "Customize and control Google Chrome" button in the upper right-corner of the browser.Settings.JPG Choose Settings. at the bottom of the screen click the
"Show advanced settings..." link. Scroll down to find the Downloads section and click the Change... button. Select your desktop and click OK.

Firefox.JPGMozilla Firefox - Click the "Open Menu" button in the upper right-corner of the browser. Settings.JPG Choose Options. In the downloads section, click the Browse button, click on the Desktop folder
and the click the "Select Folder" button. Click OK to get out of the Options menu.

IE.jpgInternet Explorer - Click the Tools menu in the upper right-corner of the browser. Tools.JPG Select View downloads. Select the Options link in the lower left of the window. Click Browse and
select the Desktop and then choose the Select Folder button. Click OK to get out of the download options screen and then click Close to get out of the View Downloads screen.

NOTE: IE8 Does not support changing download locations in this manner. You will need to download the tool(s) to the default folder, usually Downloads, then copy them to the desktop.

 

- Finally Before We Start-

 

Removing malware is a complicated multiple step process, Please stay with me until I have declared your system clean. I strongly recommend you backup your personal files and folders. Although rare, attempting to remove malware can render your machine unbootable or cause data loss. Having backups of your data is your responsibility. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.

 

 

 

Logs Needed
Let's begin. Please follow the steps below.
 
1. Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them.

    Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

2. Right click on the file and select Run as administrator (If you don't have this option simply double-click the file to open). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

3. Press Scan button.

4. It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from (which should be the desktop)

5. Please copy and paste log back here.

6. The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

     Note: Please do not attach any logs unless specifically requested. It's easier if you simply copy and paste them into your reply. It's OK if you have to use more than one post to do so.

 

 

 

Items for your next post

1. Contents of the FRST log.

2. Contents of the Addition log.
