Hi guys. I have Mcafee Internet security and under my firewall logs it states that my own ip is trying to access my PC through port 1900. I want to know if i should allow it or not?
It happens every few minutes non stop. I have looked at my Network connections on the software and the list is empty - so it could be just the software not realizing that the ip belongs to me.
But then I thought it might be possible Mcafee doesnt want my ip as trusted for whatever reason? I am using a mobile broadband dongle from the UK it says VPN/DIALup connection..
So I would like to know why my ip is trying to access port 1900 all the time, and if I should allow it - or just continue to ignore it?
Is it possible a virus could use your ip against you somehow? The machine is clean and not slow in any way.

Hi -
Just a quick idea that may not work, but is worth a try -

Download Rogue killer
Right click on it and select Run as administrator
Now,click on HOSTS FIX option on right side
A log should get generated after the fix ,post the log here

Thank You -
