I have recently installed the program Veoh TV on my PC. I have noticed that as soon as I open the program it connects to the internet whether I am using it or not. As long as I leave it in the background my modem is flashing. The only way I can stop this is by exiting the program completely. I can understand that it connects to the net while I am downloading or watching a film or TV show but not when I am not using it. Is this normal behaviour?.
I use Comodo CFP Firewall, Antivir AV, Spyware Blaster, Comodo Boclean, AVG Antispyware, Super Antispyware. I use Firefox as my main browser and have Noscripts and Adblock installed as add-ons. I have scanned my PC and am told my machine is not infected.
Since installing Veoh TV I have gotten lots of high severity events in my Firewall log which are described as UDP Port Scan. It gives the attacker as 126.96.36.199 I am not computer savvy enough to know what this means. My Firewall rules for Veoh TV are as follows.
Veoh Client-------Any---------------Any---------UDP In/Out------Allow------.
Veoh Client-------Any---------------Any----------TCP / Out-------Allow------.
I feel sure that this is something I am missing in my Firewall rules rather than a real problem but not being very PC tekkie I thought I would ask some advice here.
Thanks in advance for any help offered.
