    I was told that "NetStat" along with a number of other security apps might work towards detecting any security issues I might be developing.

    I've used NetStat few times and would appreciate someone helping me to understand why there are occasionally a ton of TCP numbers associated with a download and other times just one or two- does this mean someone is taking a ride on my connection? :confused:
    thanks

    Dont no anything about netstat but if you want security for your pc I would get zonealarm for my firewall and AVG for my anti virus. Both have free and pro versions, I use the free versions and have no prob;s. You also need to scan for spyware every now and then. Zonealarm can give you logs of scans at your pc, this is normal it happens all the time, but the firewall stops them.
