Could someone please explain to me why these programs are always trying to access the internet for no apparent reason. They were found in my system32 file under the folder name wins.
Are they spybots or something similar? Or is it just friendly microsoft keeping an eye on me?

Cheers

sometimes you can deny access and get away with it.sometimes you will need to grant access in order to run certain programs.

The files are windows files.

Run a virus scan to see if your infected.
