As the title explains, when I start-up windows I receive a short burst of infomation from 64.71.167.118 (netstat). After this information is sent my computer then begins to "search" or "think" for about 15min. If I have a disc in the CD-ROM drive they too will spin up for a bit while they are "searched". After the "thinking" is done my computer will act normally, but throughout the day it will send information to random sites such as www.answers.com, jb8234.fearson.hop.clickbank.net, promo.moviemonster.com, update.firefoxupdatecenter.net, and many others.

I have found a similar case on this website. Here . Like him I was acquired "Spy Sheriff" which gave me a variety of different spyware. His problem was solved by removing the file sysbus32.sys, unfortunatley I don't have this file anywhere on my computer, and I think all my non-plug and play drivers are all legit.

If I disconnect my connection (unplug cable modem) the "searching" process will not start until my computer regains a connection, and the info is sent to my computer.

I've ran Spybot and a few other spyware removal tools (including Windows Defender), and they all tell me that there is not spyware. I've reinstalled Windows and completed all of the Windows updates. Nothing seems to work.

I would like some help :tazz:
