    Default icon shows traffic

    The icon in the taskbar shows traffic when I
    have no programs running, and IE is not open.
    Is this normal?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Default Re: icon shows traffic

    The "User Guide for Zone Labs security software" says:
    "The traffic indicator shows you when traffic leaves (red) or enters (green) your computer. This does not imply that the traffic is illegal or that any security problem has occurred.
    Some applications access network resources in the background, so you may see network traffic occurring even when you aren't accessing the Internet."
    It doesn't say how to find out who is talking to who, though. Could be an anti-virus program checking for updates.
    (the User Guide can be found, as a PDF, on zonelabs.com + support + product zonealarm).
    That's a partial answer but can someone elaborate on how to find out just what the traffic end points are?
