Windows 7: NETSTAT.exe running every minute (60 seconds)

NETSTAT.exe running every minute (60 seconds)

Hi all,
can't understant why, but since a week or so on my server, every 60 seconds I continuously get a window appearing (a DOS-like window, like the CMD window) with "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\netstat.exe" on the title bar.

The window appears and immediately disappears, apparently not doing anything.

My server configuration:
Intel Atom D510
1GB RAM
Windows 7 Ultimate

Running:
Avast Free
Jdowloader
Java
Squeezebox server


Any idea?
Could this be a virus?

Welcome Elite:

Have you looked at my computer management system tools and task scheduler. It appears that some program you installed put the netstat command into task scheduler.

You can also look at services under computer management and see what process's are running.

Hi,
thanks for your reply.

I checked in task scheduler, but there is nothing starting every minute and nothing related to netstat.
Also, I checked the services running, but cannot tell if anything is strange.
So I have attached the list of all the services. Could you have a look?

Also, I have forgotten to tell that I am accessing the server using Remote Desktop Connection (from another Windows 7 box).
And that I installed iTunes on the box, besides I am not running it.

Finally, Squeezebox server is a music streaming server from Logitech (Home - Welcome to mysqueezebox.com!)


Thanks for your time!!
