Windows 7: I have port tcp 990 open in windows 7 is using sftp protocol

I have port tcp 990 open in windows 7 is using sftp protocol

I don't know if is a service that I can disable on windows or a malware, troyan or virus but none of my 2 antimalwares detected anything wrong I think, I checked full scan of my computer a month ago but don't know if this appeared after, in any case I'd like to find more info about it before just disabling it.

I downloaded filezilla client to access my own ftps server and I get:
Status: Resolving address of localhost
Status: Connecting to 127.0.0.1:990...
Status: Connection established, initializing TLS...
Error: Could not connect to server


on netstat -abn I get:
TCP 0.0.0.0:990 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING
WcesComm
[svchost.exe]

TCP [::]:990 [::]:0 LISTENING
WcesComm
[svchost.exe]

can someone tell me what accounts (including passwords) are on my pc for this clandestine ftps server, and how to disable it? also tell me how it got there?

I did a google search on WcesComm and my guess is its to sync your phone or some other device.

Quote:
Microsoft ActiveSync Connection Manager. ActiveSync is Microsoft's free Synchronization manager which enables you to synchronize your Windows CE based handheld/palm-size PC with your desktop PC. You can synchronize documents but also e-mail and calendaring items. WCESCOMM starts whenever the PC boots up and runs in the background in the System Tray until it detects that a Pocket PC has been connected to your PC, at which points it shows up to begin the synchronization process.
