If I'm check netstat and type in -ano and the only programs that are running on PID are Firefox and Avast does that my computer isn't being infiltrated or they could infiltrate it through firefox/hide it so netstat doesn't see?

Hi -
http://netstatagent.com/blog/articles/netstat-usage/ << This link shows you about using the inbuilt "netstat" options/secrets.

I have never used this tool (I only use TCP View) so I can only leave you with the information given


Thank You -

PID is the Process ID. Every running program on Windows (i.e. a process) has a Process ID.
It is just a unique number to identify the process.

So if I go to netstat and the only processes are a bunch of avast PID's and firefox PID's which only exist when I open it up and nothing else with a connected established IP address that means there's no hacker connected to my computer so a good one would easily hide that?
