    Multiple Connections from different IP's

    I checked my router log and it shows about 75 TCP connections om port 42286 all from different IP addesses. I'm concerned about a trojan or some other malware but my scans all come up negative. Can anyone help shed some light on this?

    Thanks dog, I'll definitely give that a read. I figured out the problem. I started shutting off processes one at a time and it was something running in the background. Thanx for the help.

    Yeah, good reading there. I like this to see processing running. If you press view and check lower pane, it shows who the process belongs to : Process Explorer
