A very long post title indeed it seems this post is.  Ah well, it helps to get the point straight out and I get to sound a little bit like Yoda in the first sentence if you haven’t noticed yet, so all is good.

Going straight to the tutorial, the first thing that you need to do is open up your Windows command prompt (type “cmd” in your start menu search box) and run it as and administrator.

Next type in this command in the command prompt “netstat –abf 5 > netactivity.txt” and then wait for a couple of minutes and press “ctrl + c” to stop the process.  Notice that I’ve underlined netactivity, well you can name it with whatever name you want.  The .txt file can be located in your C:WindowsSystem32 folder.

Open up the file and now you can scrutinize your computer’s connections.  If you see any connections that are suspicious you can use the good old Uncle Google to find more information and take action if that connection leads to a bad website.
