Do I have a trojan?

Occaisonally, after I log off, I get a message saying "you or a program have tried to access internet, which connection would u like?" So I installed a firewall to check, and one of the packet messages is -

'Messenger' from your computer wants to send UDP datagram to user-jm9jb9nxeq [217.137.28.23], port 1900

Is this suspicious? AVG doesn't think I have a virus, but it could be wrong I guess. Ben

Not a trojan, are you using XP? if so I think its the infamous plug and play problem.

From regedit go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectPlayNATHelp\DPNHUPnP subkey.

Click on edit at the top of the screen and select New, DWORD Value.

Type UPnPMode as the name and press Enter.
Double-click the new value, set it to 2, then click OK.
Restart and see if that fixes it.
