I recently installed malwarebytes anti-malware and it runs in background.
Today it popped a balloon showing that it successfully blocked a connection to a potentially harmful site. Type: incoming and Process: svchost.exe
Now, that is a system process.
How can that connect to a potentially harmful site???

MB is little paranoid, about blocked websites. U can use Process Explorer to identify the process. It is safe process required to run.

Yeah, it is doing all day every day : ) Some websites get on the list of 'not good' sites.

It showed me once yahoo/sport/nhl.com as one of them : )

I use it as a scanner, it is not running all the time.
