Windows 10: msnbot-65-52-108-228:0 LISTENING

    msnbot-65-52-108-228:0 LISTENING


    Every since I upgraded to the creators update I noticed in the Resource Monitor under Network that MSNBOT was trying to access my system. I blocked it in my hosts file. Ran virus scans which found nothing - should I be concerned.

    In a word "No." See this discussion on msnbot in this old but still valid TenForums thread: Desktop (explorer.exe) always connected to Microsoft Solved - Windows 10 Forums. Item #7 is especially germane.

    This could probably disable it.

    How to Disable Bing in the Windows 10 Start Menu
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search" /v "DisableWebSearch" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search" /v "ConnectedSearchUseWeb" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    Well, I learn something new everyday! In my past life, I always welcomed a visit from msnbot because that was a sign my webserver pages were being considered for indexing in the old MSN search engine ; however, I have never seen it access my particular desktop unless I was running a webserver. So, has this changed?

    Hmm... maybe it has changed if these ideas are correct?
