Windows 7: Eset blocks suspicious URL

Eset blocks suspicious URL

I recently did a clean install of 8.1. About 3 or 4 times a day I receive a pop-up saying that ESET has blocked a risky URL. The url address is a very long nonsense letters and numbers and seems to change each time it is blocked. The IP address is the same every time. It is

I have done numerous searches and can't seem to find what is causing this. I wonder if a program I have installed is trying to send info, or what could be causing this. Can anyone help me with this?

That IP address comes up as invalid with the 80 at the end.

Which appear to be servers in Delaware, but the company is French.

PROceau | Hébergement haute disponibilité de services à forte valeur ajoutée.

Not much to go on there either except they appear to be enterprise network services.

Maybe someone else with more savvy network skills can drum up more info for you.

It is common for ESET to block dangerous or suspicious web sites. What web site are you trying to go to? You should be able to look at the ESET logs and see exactly what they blocked and maybe why. A who is search may be able to help you identify the web site, but the web site you listed is the first 11 numbers, it seems to me it was trying to connect to port 80, which would make me a little suspicious.

Suggest: Try adding the domains listed here to your hosts file:

Also try opening an Elevated Command Prompt then type:

netstat -ano

Press Enter. See if the ip address shows up in the list and get the PID of the process. Look up the PID in task manager to see what proccess it is.

EDIT: Seems like you might have adware. If you like you can try running UAK. (Ultra Adware Killer)

Just run a scan but do not allow it to clean anything.

When the scan completes choose Menu > View Scan Log.

Upload the log. In the meantime inspect the results and whitelist anything that you know is safe and that you need to keep.
