Welcome to Seven Forums bluezz. You can either use windows built in tool to see what your PC is connecting to, or a free small program.

Within windows, open an advanced command prompt

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator> When command prompt opens type

netstat -abf 5 > activity.txt

Enter

Let it run a while when you see activity when you are not surfing. Press Ctrl + C to stop the logging. You will find a txt file named activity.txt in C:\windows\System32 Or just type activity.txt in the same command window, and it will open. You will be surprised at all the things that connect to the internet.

You can also download CurrPorts from Nirsoft to do much the same. It's portable, so doesn't even need to be installed

CurrPorts: Monitoring TCP/IP network connections on Windows

Scroll down past the Version history for info on how to use it.
