.....Imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts" In windows system log???Just thinking along the lines of with Norton continuous updating,Norton community watch is working overtime submitting stuff,some of it is taking longer than a day to be submitted?Is this a cause for concern or nothing to worry about as the PC is working OK no visible problems.

I don't know what a P2P is?where would you find it on the pc?as this TCP/IP Happens quite a bit maybe once a day.If its not Norton would another program cause it?I do get norton blocking "system" trying to share files that was in another thread I had posted.I had this laptop given to me it has been wiped clean and everything reinstalled could there be something on it from its past?I'm grasping at straws but I want to find out what these entrys mean.My scans come up clean in safe mode as well as normal.
cheers for any more help given.

The only programs that I have on my PC to do with music is windows media player and possibly QuickTime,I don't down load or share files(wouldn't know how to!)I have put music on my Pc from CDs that I have but that's about it.This has to be the most frustrating thing about being a novice,having things running on your PC,not necessarily hurting your PC but having them running and not knowing how to stop them.I am checking out Microsoft forums but they can be a nightmare to find your way around.Feel my pain guys LOL
Thanks for your help

In NIS, the Security History, In the drop down list click on "Firewall- Activities" to see if anything shows up there, Mine shows the likes of Outlook, Chrome, Trillian etc.

There are the usual iexplorer
then 2 svchost.exe
lsass and the default block file sharing from "system"
When I logged on this morning I sat down and looked at what actually happens in the event viewer in the application viewer this appeared Wmdmpmsp sevice sandwiched in between 2 Norton logs,Now I have looked this up on the elder geek site(great easy to use and understand site)so I believe I know what it is.My sister in law who I got the laptop off would have used a ipod but I don't .Could this be the source of all the TCP/IP connections that are trying to/or are occurring?Or is someone somehow using my Pc to download their music?

By the process "explorer" do you mean "explore.exe"?
There are the usual iexplorer
You can set the " Wmdmpmsp" sevice to Manual or Disabled via the "services" list, look for "Portable Media Serial Number Service" in the list.
The other one I have stopped is "Application layer Gateway Service" alg.exe. also in the sevices list as I have No Dependancies needing this.
