I have just done a netstat -a and one of the connections showing is kloxo.com, I have checked this out and it all seems ok and not spyware related.
I am just wondering why I would be connected top this when I have never even heard of this site before.

It could have been made by an advertisement link on a site you recently visited.

Can you display the netstat -a information just for that connection?
