I've had a search, but couldn't find anything, so asking fresh.

I was alerted by my network administrator that my computer was attacking our internal network (port scanning).  Tracing a few ideas and different tools (especially TCPview) I eventually found my browser scanning each port in turn with connection to static-ip-188-135-101-169,  This is the host site for and as soon as I close that window, the port connections stop.

Has anyone else noticed this or have a better explanation why this address is scanning?

p.s. I have asked them for some tech support on this too.

I am not sure why it is doing this. However, you could edit your hosts file and redirect that domain to (localhost). If the site is still functional then you are all set.
