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.

 

Thanks.

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.

Many thanks, Phantom.

 

I have downloaded this and will run it and see how I get along.

 

I'll let you know the outcome.

 

Many thanks for your assistance!
