Windows XP. Network connections shows constant packets being sent and recieved even when I am not actively using the internet. I know that programs often contact servers even when not in use but is there someway I can find out what program is connecting? A full McAfee scan has not revealed any problems. Thanks. David

Hi jarani. Wireless network, encrypted. No other permissions to join network. McAfee network manager does not show any connection attempts.

It's just the exchange asking if you're still there.
