    I recently have about 3 instances of "svchost.exe" connecting to the internet....Is this a likely problem?

    Also, does anyone have a list or can point me in the right direction of a list
    of regular Windows files that could be suspicious if connecting to the internet??

    Thanks

    It should be a normal occurrence.

    thanks Lone Wolf....probably nothing from what you posted, i ended up re-installing Vista today for an unrelated issue, so the problem is gone...just a little disturbing to see 3 of those connecting to internet, when i usually see none..
