I've been looking at the tutorial about netstat and have tried some of the instructions, but find that although the black dos screen opens up, it quickly closes again, so there's no way for me to view the information. I tried this from both an admin and non-admin account and it didn't seem to make any difference. Is there any way I can get this information to stay so I can look at it?

I'm not sure but it sounds like you might be typing the commands into the wrong place. You need to open the command prompt first and then type commands at the C:\> prompt. Try this:

Press and hold the Windows key then press the R and then release both keys.
Type cmd into the text box.
Press OK.

This will open up the ms-dos window, command prompt window, dos window, black screen - call it what you will. Now you can type netstat commands and the screen will stay open.

If you type the netstat commands in the run box you'll get the flashing by but can't read experience. Just needs the cmd in the run box. I use the mouse more than key combinations , click start, click run, type cmd which gets you to MS-DOS, then type your netstat commands at the prompt
