Hello There,

I have recently been looking at my firewall logs and it seems as though there is a lot of traffic even when I am not active on the computer. :)

I know this is normal but this is beyond because it happens even when my MSN, Antivirus and Microsoft Arent Active. :ph34r:

I have seen many ad.doubleclick.net and fastclick.net entries and many other Suspicious looking entries and I mean a lot ! :tazz:

I have checked my HijackThis at many different forums and It seems fine and I have also done Virus, Trojan tests and it seems clean. However When I do A Spyware Check I Have webtrendslive according to Spybot and AdAware and It Keeps Coming Back Even When I remove It. :)

I Have been asked by a member of staff here previously to check my firewall ( Sygate ) and It seems to be doing its job protecting NETBIOS etc. :ph34r:

However It dosnt seem to block these ad.doubleclick fastclick webtrendslive it allows it for some strange reason. :)

If There Is Anyone Here That Can Help Me With This Situation Then I Would be most Grateful. :tazz:

Thanks :tazz:

I have all of those they dont seem to remove it Spybot and AdAware remove it then it comes back after a reboot.

Microsoft Cant find it !

HijackThis Logs there is nothing wrong with it according to spyware experts because it seems as though the infection is not on HijackThis.

SpywareBlaster I have running to stop further infection.

Hi there

As the tools you are using arent getting rid of the infection, it would be best if you were to start a new topic in the malware forum with a new HJT log so we can see what else is hiding in there.

I have previously started a HJT log and Well they all seem to have not worked because when someone takes a look at it it seems to be clean ! :tazz:
