    Default Outgoing contact attempt to set DNS

    I've noticed several attempts from my computer to contact my DNS server from either svchost.exe or no program listed.These are all mostly from port 1025, with some from 2048 - 2061.About 48 total attempts in the last 8 days.
    Anyone have any idea what this is or how to track it down?ZA has blocked all attempts, so nothing has gotten out, still, it bothers me.

    From what I have been able to find out when I have tried looking for this, is the svchost will use different ports depending on what services you have running. If you have your DNS servers in the trusted zone, then block Generic Host Process from having internet server rights, and all will be well.
