Windows 7: Suspicious TCP/UDP connections on Currports

JRT looks good and you said TDSSkiller reported nothing.

All right. Last one.

Download Old Timer TFC -> save to your desktop.
TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Save any unsaved work.

Right click, run as administrator TFC

Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.

If TFC prompts you to reboot, do so immediately.
If TFC does NOT prompt you, then reboot your machine immediately after TFC has completed.

It logged me out, I logged back in and then restarted, no prompts, so I guess that means all's good?
It made hidden files/folders appear, but I simply turned that off, I guess this journey is at an end then, I'll uninstall some more software I never use using Revo, thank you so much for all the help you've given me, I'd still be stuck at the Hosts file issue if it wasn't for you!

You're most welcome oddblob, glad you have the issue resolved. And because of currports/spybot/hosts, you discovered and erradicated other malware.

Yeah, you're good-to-go as I see it.

Curious though, It made hidden files/folders appear - do you mean the folder setting or some particular folder/files?

Keep Mbam - you can remove the other scanners, especially Sophos. They get stale fairly quick due to the nature of malware and you can always download fresh version.

Yeah for some reason Old timer-TFC has some benign side effects. I had one Windows Update restart, probably because I ddin't reboot first to let WU finish.

Anyway, it was a pleasure working with you on this. I learned a bit in the process too.
