Hello,
When my laptop is connected to the internet, then if i go to START - RUN - CMD then enter netstat /b it shows current active connections and the other two are c:\windows\system32\WS2_dII and c:\windows\system32\WINHTTP.dII [svchost.exe] i am worried and scared of this things because they only started to show from wednesday 8 October. i never experienced this before, my current antivirus is AVG and is updated. is this a virus? if it is please what should i do. please

WINHTTP is needed to support Hypertext
WS2_dll is needed to support Winsock

You may have filled out an online form that required Hypertext or used MS Messenger and these programs were activated. I don't think they a a problem - no Trojan programs reported for these programs.
