Well i just tryed Port explorer today and have some problem. Aside from the normal thing i kno i have, I have 33 open socket with very high PID like between 303104 and 965633 There is no information about those process Setting > show process as They do not have any 'exe Name'/'path information'/'file info' They all use protocol 'other' (no udp/tcp) They have strange local adress: 0.0.0.0 (ok) 0.127.0.0 (??) 0.192.168.1 (??) That look to me like error in parsing. 127.0.0.1 EXIST and is my comp 192.168.1.50 EXIST and is my local IP so its like is the last number is erased and we add 0. in the front They have strange remote adress: all in the 126.96.36.199 / 188.8.131.52 range except some are either 0.0.0.0 0.127.0.0 Theire is three group of local port 1-32 256-303 12800-12807 None of those process pid are on any taskmanager PE cannot close those process Error: Could not open the process APT (another tool from diamondCS) cannot close those process (They do not show in the process list but we can close by PID) That is pretty much it I have install ProcessGard so i know wich process are launched I have disabled processGard before trying to kill process so PG will not block this attempt So well i have some doub that those are 'leftover' or incorrect information parsing from PE. Also there is another 'bug'. PE resolve 127.0.0.1 as acestats.com .. which i highly doubt it is. Probably acestats is the server they use to resolve IP.
