NOB frequently seeks unscheduled connection to the Internet - Why and What is it doing?
I have Norton Online Backup and Windows 7 Starter SP1.
I have configured NOB online so that there is
no scheduled backup, but instead I use it to carry out a manual backup at such date when I believe that a backup is necessary.
However, according to the Windows 7 "Resource Monitor", and as confirmed by the firewall, NOB is constantly seeking to connect to the Internet.
As a Symantec product I consider NOB to be a trusted application, yet I would appreciate knowing, please:
1) Why NOB is constantly seeking to connect to the Internet when there is no apparent reason why it should be doing this?
2) What is NOB doing when it does connect to the Internet at times when it is not carrying out any backup?
