|Hello, thanks for your reply. I ran a virus scan with my avast antivirus, it came up clean. I think I will also check with bitdefender online scanner just to be sure. After further investigation, I realised that the first two entries:|
vip1:http were part of my Comodo firewall contacting update websites for the firewall program. Nothing suspicious about those connections. I then realised that I had Microsoft Security essentials installed on a virtual computer and realised that this was part of the Microsoft Spynet that Microsoft security essentials forces you to sign up to. I made a registry edit, and stopped security essentials reporting information to Microsoft, which I am sure is what the connection to spynettest was, I found an article on google. I will probably do a scan with bitdefender. But nothing suspicious has been happening on my machine, no hosts file changes, slowdowns or popups.
Thankyou for your fast response.
