What the hell is www.altnet.com and why is it in my network?

    I just saw the other day the "www.altnet.com" accessed a network-shared folder of mine. This already got me alittle paranoid. I google'd it and blocked them via the "HOSTS" file in the windows directory somewhere. Atleast I thought so, I just looked at my connections (via Netstat) and I'm connected to them. Wtf??

    adaware and spybot are your friend.

    Thanks, but, I've tried adaware and spybot. No luck.

    and you've rebooted? If so, time to whip out that MS Windows CD and reformat.

    Thanks for trying :)

    I kinda want not to reformat just for this.

    Heres an update:
    I tried Spybot (newest version and detection stuff), Adaware (newest everything) and Spyware Blaster. Still no luck.

    I went to numerous sites saying how to remove it by hand, but I don't seem to have these files. I'm just constently connected to altnet

    Code:
      
      Active Connections
      
     Proto Local Address		 Foreign Address		State
        TCP    riegulate:1025			  [url="http://www.altnet.com:18350"]www.altnet.com:18350[/url]   ESTABLISHED
        TCP    riegulate:3371			  [url="http://www.altnet.com:3372"]www.altnet.com:3372[/url]	ESTABLISHED
        TCP    riegulate:3372			  [url="http://www.altnet.com:3371"]www.altnet.com:3371[/url]	ESTABLISHED
      
    Edit: I dont even have those ports forwarded, as far as I know. This is all very strange

    look under your services and see if there is anything fishy under there.
