Hello all,
I just installed Ewido antispyware software and was looking at my port and firewall connections under the "Analysis" tab and I thought it was strange that explorer.exe showed a connection to an IP of 80.98.235.62:80.

Anyone have any idea what this could be for?

the 82.98.235.62 ip address is a server somewhere in the UK as seen here:

so-6-0-0-.cr1.lhr3.uk.above.net [64.125..31.185]

and is also an afilliate of this company:

abovenet

If you live in the UK and use this company as your ISP then this connection is probably ok. If you do not then you may want to block it.
