Can anyone please advise how to block various unwanted online connections picked up by Netstat?


The hops my connection makes are unbelievable!


I can attach a Netstat file if required.

Do you know what is calling those connections and the remote addresses?


A free portable program like CurrPorts can give you much more details than netstat.
