I had a question about open connections. I was messing with my laptop and using cmd netstat -s it shows my new laptop has from 22 to 28 open connections. I have shut it down and done a restart and looked each time to see if it would go down, but it doesn't. Is it ok for it to have so many open connections after start up?

I run avg for virus protection but really haven't put to much on there yet.

My laptop its brand new I just bought it like 3 days ago.

Firstly, do as you normally would. if you open the command prompt as an administrator. Type the command you are running followed by > C:\netstat.txt so as an example: "netstat -a > C:\netstat.txt".

Then open the text file and copy and paste the content into your next post.

Open connections are not necessarily bad, for example the connections may be AVG connecting back to their servers to get the latest updates.
