    Hello All,

    I just discovered that my Mac El capitan has some weird Newtork connections which are not connected.
    I tried deleting them, but after restart they came back.

    Does anyone know what are these connections ? Am i infected by a virus maybe ?

    Many thanks for all your help!

    They look like VPN connections. Do you have a VPN application installed?

    If you do, you can try to completely uninstall it by dragging the application into AppCleaner, which can be downloaded here:

    If you're not sure whether or not you have a VPN application, please could you screenshot what you have in your Applications folder?
