Yeah this is closer to the GUI of comdo view connections, but has a heck of a lot more info to clear through, I removed a mess of columns to get closer to what I want, but it is closer to what I wanted than killswitch.
btw, funny thing is I had this on my system a long time since I use WCSS that has several utility apps like nirsoft. thanks for showing me the way I still would rather just see a simple GUI app like comodo view connections as a small stand alone with just the info that it shows, that’s all I need to keep tabs on what’s going on as far as traffic.
I still can’t quire figure out what all the svchost.exe’s are though, they seem to D/L constantly in the background, I know its in the MS system32 folder, but that’s all it points to, not what exactly is being downloaded and to what windows module. I’ve had 200+ svchost.exe D/L’s right after a normal 300mg WinCU update. My DSL is so slow that when these things kick in, I can’t do squat until they are done.
Svchost.exe processes are part of the Windows operating system
Part with internal connections
An external connections part
Example to know an external connection via svchost.exe just proceed to a whois once the IP recovered

Svchost.exe is required because most services and other ‘system’ functions exist only as dll and not exe files. A dll file cannot own a process (which is the basic unit of work in Windows) only an exe file can do that. An existing process can load dll files however (that’s what dll files are for) so the svchost.exe process exists as a hosting process in which to load and run the appropriate svc dll file.
There are other hosting processes too; dllhost.exe for hosting dll files for COM objects and taskhost.exe for hosting user mode dll files…
interesting, cause there are as many as 10 to 15 separate svchost downloading at times. What I’d like to be able to determine is just what .dll’s this thing is constantly updating if it just downloaded a CU. thanks for the info.
