Activity on Port 16776

Hello,

A couple days ago I noticed that there was constant activity on my network
card, even though I wasn't running anything that should be generating
network traffic. So I port scan and discovered that there's all kinds of
activity on port 16776.

Most of the packets are 104 bytes. And they are to a seemingly endless list
of IP's. Every second or two a new IP shows up from places all around the
world with some of this packet activity.

I've run every virus scanner and anti-spyware program I can find. None of
them detect anything. And yet the port activity is still going on
constantly.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

James

Download and Execute TCPView from SysInternals

See if this will identify the fully qualified name and path of the file that is
communicating and this port.
