Hello members
My system has the "old" comodo firewall.
See attached image how the above svchost. exe file is communicating over the internet. Can someone tell me what the cause of this could be. I have run spybot, malware bytes and avast.
It seems to go on forever?
Thanks

TRY
* Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes)
* Scroll down to "DNS Client", Right-click and select: Properties
* Click the drop-down arrow for "Startup type"
* Select: Manual, click Apply/Ok and restart.
(IF you are the only PC user, and not part of a domain.)
That also eliminates one SVCHOST process in Task Manager.
