Default continuous data transfer to IP 224.0.0.252

Good day all,

I have realized that my PC is continually sending data to the IP address
224.0.0.252.
Why and how can I stop this?

Thanks a lot,
Morteza

P.S. my configuration: Vista Ultimate SP1, IE7, wired modem router, ADSL
(PPPoE) internet connection

Good be a number of things... Spyware comes to my mind first.

You have several options here from my view

1) Look into a firewall Mcafee or Norton and add the IP to the block list.
Also you could find out what program is sending the information and delete it.

2) Get a spyware scanner... I dont really like these scanners but I belive
they do work and it may delete the spyware for you.

3) You could go oldschool and format your entire drive /reinstall. This will
stop anything from going to that IP ever again! :P

Scan your computer with these 2 Programs, and your AV, just to be sure of no
Malware..
What were the results of the answers supplied to you in your last post re
this?

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

224.0.0.252 is a multicast address limited to your local subnet. It
could be your Vista computer is using Link-Local Multicast Name
Resolution (LLMNR) to find other computers on the local network. LLMNR
broadcasts use this IP address.

Further info:

Disable LLMNR:

I have been having the same problem, but I only have Premium and the
Group Policy is not available to me. Also the Registry does not have a
DNS Client under the Windows NT key. Do I have to add the DNS Client
and the EnableMulticast Registry? And if so, what type of value does it
need to be?

Thanks for any help,
Banister

enable outbound blocking with windows firewall. Then go to the predefined settings and disable the ones for llmnr. You won't see the attempts anymore.

I'd like to know the answer to this too. No reason why my pc has to automatically broadcast across the network to 224.0.0.252 for every program I open. What kind of big brother nonsense is this Microsoft? I share files on my home network fine when blocking this, but why does it have to clog up and flood my logs!!!
