Hoov, thank you for responding.I should start by saying I may not be using the right terminology. The log viewer shows a source IP and a destination IP with the TCP port for each. The source IP #sare all over the place, 126.96.36.199 on one end to 188.8.131.52 with the TCP port #s from 90 to 63358. The destination side seems to be a tighter range with IPs first three #s from 221 to 235 but the TCP ports are still a wide range from 728 to 65388.
This activity is happening by itself. I am not requesting anything from the web, I dont even have to have my browser open for this to happen. The activity lights on my modem and router will flash even if I,m not logged on to a user after a fresh boot.
I have checked for trojans, virus's, spyware, etc. with nothing detected.
From someone like myself with only moderate knowledge of these things, it seems this is anetwork problem with Comcast, maybe an attack of some kind?
I feel as though I'm safe thanks to ZA. My concern is the memory use by vsmon and not releasing the memory after these scans, or whatever is happening, stops.
Thanks again, Moodster
