virus/worms etc. question - something connects to the internet but I don't know what
Posted on 2004-04-07
I seem to have something running on my Win2000 box which is connecting to the internet. I can clearly see on the network-icon (the two computers in the icontray) that there is some communication going on (I am sitting on a cablemodem) but I have no idea what.
I used Antivir for checking my system: it found some sadbot-**** which was deleted now. I even re-checked my system twice after rebooting.
I checked the TaskManager for running processed: seems all right
I checked registry for the /run etc. entries if something is automatically started when booting up my computer: nothing
And still some bastard is sitting on my computer and connecting to the internet, I am 100% sure. THERE IS COMMUNICATION GOING ON but I have not the slightest idea what!!!!
can anyone help?
Can anyone tell me the name of a good, free and easy to use realtime packet/IP sniffer so I can check out which apps (.exes etc.) are using internet connections? I tried multiple packet sniffers now but they are just worthless.
I just need to find out which bastard-app is using my internet-connection.
