Using Netstat

I have found two entries for ads.indya.com on ports 1057 and 1024. Should I be worried about these? I realise they are probably only for advertising purposes but I have used Adaware and Spybot and they are still there. Am I missing something or just more paranoid than usual?

You will find they will drop off in a short period of time. There is a way to decrease the time but its a slog....

Put the new hosts file in and they're now showing as "local host". That'll teach them. Cheers
