Attached is an image of my Netstat -A right after boot and w/o opening IE or any other program. For this I had AV and Firewall down. I just want to make sure that this many *.* are normal. I didn't think of adding a list of all apps running in background... but at first glance can someone give me their thoughts.

Thank you

I guess that I fail to see the point...of having a firewall and AV...deliberately inactive while exposed to the Internet.

Oh, well...

thanks for your constructive remark... the point was to have as clean a picture of what traffic might be occuring ... however I have since learned I should have run netstat -a -b to see which programs were using the ports ...
