Ok, I just recently went into my Firewall (b/c I was trying to do Microsoft Updates, but the little green progress bar would just go on forever), and I clicked "Ask" for In,Out, for both Trusted and Internet for the "Generic Host Process for Win32" (from what I understand is scvhost.exe?)

It wanted to connect to several IP addresses I've never seen before.

one of them were:
64.236.38.166 (AOL Transit Data Network)
I do use RoadRunner, but not AOL. (maybe AIM, but AOL itself)
64.236.38.159
64.236.38.167
208.172.13.251 (Savvis)
63.236.111.222 (Qwest Communications Corporation)
4.79.74.61 (Level 3 Communications, Inc.)
63.209.188.62 (Level 3 Communications, Inc. and Savvis LVLT-SAVVI-2-63-209-188-32)
64.236.38.160 (AOL Transit Data Network)

Finally after cyclying through them all I finally agreed to let it connect to the AOL, figuring since AOL is partnered with Roadrunner, it would be possibly secure?

I never had a problem before while after this blocked, until I went to do Microsoft Updates.

Any ideas? or comments?

Also by the way:
Explorer.exe wants to connect to 239.255.255.250 via port 1900
Should I allow or deny it? I've had it denied for a while, haven't had any problems. Just curious.
