Firewall event

Not sure if anyone can help but I keep getting the following event on my fire wall is trying to access a port which is not expected, I've done a trace and it seems to be coming from Microsoft in San Francisco my firewall is Mcafee Firewall Plus

Anything to worry about?

Do you use MSN Messenger? Does anyone else use your computer and use it?

  mike1967 15:45 12 Mar 2006

Yeah we do but the fact that it says it tries to access a different port to whats expected worries me

Have you downloaded any programs lately...if so maybe running ewido for Malware will help.

Is it possible that you have downloaded a rogue program with Malware/spyware attached.

Looks like it might be MSN plus checking hotmail email accounts, have all the other things in place so doubt very much it will be malware but will check anyway
