I've had a few incidents of the "Microsoft Security Center 2012" intrusion software and removed them by copying my entire partition from a backup - it seems to be the only way I can stop this garbage once it starts. But, it returns every few days.

I finally decided to turn on the realtime protection in my Malwarebytes Pro and, sure enough, the very first night it nailed an attempt by something on my computer to attempt to access a site somewhere in the good ol' USSR. Three attempts at 00:30hrs, five minutes apart.

My Malwarebytes (updated) scan doesn't see anything suspicious on my computer. How do I find the source of the attempted communications?

Greetings :)

It sounds like something hidden, like a rootkit or trojan, may still be on the system. I would highly recommend doing the following to receive free expert assistance in getting the system cleaned up:

Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then create a NEW topic here.
One of the expert helpers there will give you one on one assistance when one becomes available.

Please note that it may take 48 hours or more for you to receive a response in the malware removal forum, as it is often busy at times. Please do not reply to your own post asking for help unless its been more than 48 hours since you originally posted, as this can make it appear as though you are being helped and take longer for you to get help.

If you are unable to do all or any of the steps in the link to the directions above, just post your problem into the forum I gave you a link to anyway and someone will be able to assist you.

If you prefer to be assisted via email you may contact support@malwarebytes.org and one of our support staff members will assist you directly.

If you are a reseller, affiliate, technician, corporate, business, educational, government or non-profit customer then please contact corporate-support@malwarebytes.org and include full contact details along with your Reference # when you do to ensure that you receive prompt assistance.

Thank you :)
