    Dont know if i have a problem.
    Kaspersky deleted a virus in my downloads folder of emule.
    Cant remember what it was ,just said delete,so i did .
    Now noticed ,that every 5 seconds,zone alarm warns me that,medium warning,it is blocking incomeing connection ,port 4672.
    I thought this is odd every 5 seconds,and i have never noticed it before.
    So i uninstalled emule , cleaned up the registry,removed all traces and rescaned.
    Found nothing.
    Still getting blocking 4672 alerts.
    I know emule uses port 4672,but this is not on my computer.
    Can anyone tell me why these alerts please.
    Was these alerts connected to emule,if so why am i still getting them.
    thanks

    Is it blocking incoming or outgoing traffic?

    try this...
    Start | Run | type cmd and hit enter

    then type "netstat -a"

    This will list all ports being used on your machine by all protocols. Look for the port you are in question about and see what is using it.

    They have slowly got less and less.
    It was blocking incoming on port stated above .
    My guess is the new version of emule was useing my computer as some kind of hub.
    The port used was used by the kad network.
    2days later and they have now stopped .
    thanks
