    In launching a jpg through agent, I get this message from AVG:

    Application: COM Surrogate
    Full path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DLLHOST.EXE
    Local address: 192.168.1.16 : 49706
    Remote address: 131.107.115.28 : 80
    Connection: TCP connection
    Direction: Out

    This application is attempting to connect to "remote address".


    Ok. so what the hell is it?
    The IP given is registered to M$ and the website responds with
    "service unavailable".
