I shut down Azerus (my bit torrent program) and ever since then my computer has been recieving "unsolicited connection attempts" on port 50105 every second or two according to McAfee firewall. I am pretty sure that Azerus is set to use that port but its closed! I have restarted my computer multiple times and even cycled the power on the cable modem with no luck! I have gotten well over 400 attempts since I started writing this message and im going out of my mind. I am going to unplug the cable modem for the night, but I dont know what to do.

Welcome to BC. If your computer is running and you do CTRL ALT DEL do you still see azeurua running under processes?

No sir I do not. When I say "I am pretty sure that Azerus is set to use that port but its closed" I mean azerus is closed,...i dont know about the port. I am assuming that my firewall has either closed or stealthed it.

Also most of the attempts are coming from 64.93.88.XXX 64.93.89.XXX 64.93.90.XXX 64.93.91.XXX etc etc etc.

Run this test : Shields Up.

Can you give me the last 3 digits from the IP adress or are they random?

this is probably just another Bitorrent user trying to connect to your machine to download files. The conections will be attempted long after you uninstall the program. As the user before knew that this IP address and port number existed and that files were being shared from it they will keep trying to connect.
I have had this before and I never seemed to be able to stop it. It is not really a worry just make sure that the firewall is blocking the traffic and it sould not really effect the network. This could be also an person atempting to hack into your system as it knew that this port was open previously.
I am sure there are other people that will be able to spread more light on this issue but I believe that this is the most likely cause.

Shields up reports that everything is stealthed. My comp responds to pings but I saw no other issues. The last digits in the address are random.

Have you tried google to find the answer? That's what I always do.
Azureus uses a lot of memory have you tried uninstalling or changing bittorrent clients?
