I've run Malwarebytes full scan. It says my machine is clean but I am still getting this balloon message every minute or two. It pops up saying:

Successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website 209.85.229.104
Type: outgoing
Port: 62832, Process: svchost.exe

"Outgoing" worries me—that a machine with supposedly zero viruses would try to access that website (IP address remains the same, but port changes when the new balloon pops up with the warning) every minute or so. My PC seems to be running fine.

Could it be a problem with the svchost.exe file?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to Malwarebytes

If you think you are infected, here are the steps needed to get your computer cleaned....
Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

Don't use any temporary file cleaners unless requested - this can cause data loss and make recovery difficult

You have 3 Options that you can choose from as listed below:
  • Option 1 —— Free Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 —— Paying customer -- Contact Support via email
  • Option 3 —— Premium, Fee-Based Support
OPTION 1


As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the
Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems or infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Follow this topic and choose Instantly,
    so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
NOTE: Please do not post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.
Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies.
If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

  • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    Or
  • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.
OPTION 2


Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk here


OPTION 3


If you would like to use our Malwarebytes Premium Consumer Services partner, Comprehensive solutions to all your computer support needs—from installation and set-up to troubleshooting and tune-ups go to our Malwarebytes Premium Services support site.
