Ports and services for Windows NetBIOS networking. Nothing to worry about.

Thanks brundle. I was checking things out & got worried!! On the same subject, should I have 10 Winlogons showing in start up on Spybot S&D?

It's normal to have multiple Winlogon entries too, more services and background processes.

Thanks very much.I just installed TCP view, & hadn't seen the before. Also wondered why so many Winlogons were there!!I probably fret too much!! Thanks again, Al.
