Whilst using utorrent just now, my norton keeps popping up saying it blocked "Nmap Xmas Scan" from 222.131.166.121. When i google this ip, it finds nothing. What is happening? It's always trying a different port?

222.131.166.121.

This is one of the things what you have with P2P... Suggest you do the following :

start with checking for malware causes to your problem.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
http://www.superantispyware.com/]SuperAintiSpyware

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
Bitdefender

After that please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

Thanks fozzie. I know, i know, p2p is dodgy, but i've never seen this warning before. I was hoping all the HJT stuff wouldn't be neccessary but i will get str8 on top of it as u suggest.
So what exactly is this NMap Xmas Scan thing anyways? Am i right in saying its a program someones running to try and find a vulnerable port on my pc?

AS you can see the root of the IP is somewhere in China. It is my suspicion that one of the files you downloaded dropped a nasty in your PC. In this case rules better be safe than sorry

I am also running A Dell Inspiron and for several weeks the Logitech Wireless USB 2.0 TrackBall Mouse and Keyboard worked well. The Wireless connect point was connected to the Dell via a USB Hub.
Then without warning, the cursor started moving on its own or not releasing an icon if changing between icons. My Touchpad also stopped working. When shutting down I would get a message stating SOMETHING could not close because it was still in use, although nothing I knew of was active. I did everything that has been suggested with no luck. Dell suggested I RUN MSCONFIG STARTUP and disable everything and reboot. This brought back my touchpad use. Eyelid Pustules I then enabled things that I needed or knew were not a conflict. While this was informative it did not pinpoint the problem. When I reinstalled the USB Hub with the wireless access point attached the problem reappeared.
Isolating the mouse problem, papules I went back to the Wired Keyboard via USB hub and the Wiresless mouse and so far so good. The Wired Keyboard and Wireless access point are now in seperate ports on the USB hub.
It seemed to be a conflict between the two wireless devices and the touchpad.
