1. While I am checking port activity with PE, the program itself comes up in red very briefly. I also have it set to ask permission in ZA, and it does not at these times, only when i ping etc... 2. When I run netstat at boot I get: TCP: XXXXXX:1025 localhost 1029 ESTABLISHED TCP: XXXXXX:1026 localhost 1028 ESTABLISHED TCP: XXXXXX:1028 localhost 1026 ESTABLISHED TCP: XXXXXX:1029 localhost 1025 ESTABLISHED TCP: XXXXXX:1047 localhost 1048 ESTABLISHED TCP: XXXXXX:1048 localhost 1047 ESTABLISHED TCP: XXXXXX: a208-38-45-174.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com:HTTP Close_Wait When I open IE or firefox. In PE I get up to 8 of them with more than one IP, and in netstat, the deploy.akamaitechnologies multiply. I thought the local hosts were my own programs, but i logged in safe mode and removed some spyware that was not picked up runinng normal. Upon reboot netstat was clean. I ran a few apps, and now it's back thanks if anyone can offer advice.
