I was recently asked to check my net connections since I play a lot of online gaming. I typed cmd into the run box then typed netstat, which should have shown no open connections like everyone else, but I have about 20!
Here's a pic so you can see what I mean: click here
Any ideas?
Thanx in advance.

You're luck you don't run Linux, I've got 'undreds of 'em click here
Looking at yours it looks like local traffic within your computer. One way to check what's accessing the network is to use your firewall, most will list what is active.

C:\WINDOWS|? netstat ? Produces all the various options for "netstat" useage eg: netstat -a
-a Displays all connections and listening ports.
-b Displays the executable involved in creating each connection o
listening port. In some cases well-known executables host
multiple independent components, and in these cases the
sequence of components involved in creating the connection
or listening port is displayed. In this case the executable
name is in [] at the bottom, on top is the component it called
and so forth until TCP/IP was reached. Note that this option
can be time-consuming and will fail unless you have sufficient
-e Displays Ethernet statistics. This may be combined with the -s
-n Displays addresses and port numbers in numerical form.
-o Displays the owning process ID associated with each connection
-p proto Shows connections for the protocol specified by proto; proto
may be any of: TCP, UDP, TCPv6, or UDPv6. If used with the -s
option to display per-protocol statistics, proto may be any of
IP, IPv6, ICMP, ICMPv6, TCP, TCPv6, UDP, or UDPv6.
-r Displays the routing table.
-s Displays per-protocol statistics. By default, statistics are
shown for IP, IPv6, ICMP, ICMPv6, TCP, TCPv6, UDP, and UDPv6;
the -p option may be used to specify a subset of the default.
-v When used in conjunction with -b, will display sequence of
components involved in creating the connection or listening
port for all executables.
interval Redisplays selected statistics, pausing interval seconds
between each display. Press CTRL+C to stop redisplaying
statistics. If omitted, netstat will print the current
configuration information once.
