I have AVG 7.1 plus Firewall on my PC (WinXP SP2) and it is picking up In/Out UDP requests for traffic to
Port 3544 is apparently Teredo traffic related to IPv6 routing but a ping -a search revealed that belongs to server baym-td1.msgr.hotmail.com.
I have no hotmail account, I don't have MS Messanger installed and I find it strange that Hotmail would be running a Teredo server for IPv6 routing.
I am concerned that this could be some kind of spyware or similar.
I currently run AVG as above, Windows Defender and Spy Doctor. Alll are up to date and are currently not showing any viruses/spyware etc.
Has anyone had any problems similar to this, or do you have any comments?

Sorry, I forgot to mention the traffic requests are coming from a svchost.exe process.
