    Might I suggest that every so often, when you are connected to the
    internet but have no legitimate clients/servers running, you oprn up a
    command line (DOS/shell) box and run netstat -an. Learn what's normal.

    If you find that you are listening on a weird port like 24573 and are
    suspicious add the b (Windows) or p (Linux) flag. (netstat -anb) (this
    takes longer) to find out what progie is using 24573.

    Better to use 'netstat -anbv' if you are suspicious -- this displays
    the sequence of processes used for making the connection.
