Greetings to you lovely and helpful technophiles,

  First off, I am new to diagnosing & troubleshooting network leaks or what seem to me like highly suspicious network activity. Although I have a decent tech history,  so I should be able to follow any advice without much difficulty.
  So the problem seems to be coming from multiple connections coming through to my network. I am able to view this suspicious activity using COMODO Killswitch, which allows me to monitor several connections at once. I created a small log of the suspicious connections. I have pasted that info below and I also included a link to the a google doc spreadsheet if you would prefer to view it that way.

As you can see, it is rather suspicious that my computer is connecting multiple system files to I did some research into this company and website and found it to be a Greek Ad and Marketing company, called Adman by a group called Phaistos Networks.

Here are the associated websites.

So I am really hoping you guys can help me out with this. The only way I can see to terminate these connections is to also terminate the various critical system files that are running under various programs, svchost, and other essential services.

I also find it strange that these connections are also included in some personal programs such as media monkey and my VPN services.

I really do appreciate your help in this. I really don't know where or how to start cleaning up this problem with my network. Now I am assuming it truly is a problem, if you know otherwise I would appreciate an explanation on how this is not a security issue.
