It's normal. Netstat shows all the hops in your IP connection, and every single ping your machine is getting at the time. If you have 50 hops from your house to your ISP, then another 20 from the ISP to the backbone server, they'll all show up.
As long as you're running a good set of spyware/adware/antivirus utilites, you're fine. _________________ Big enough to scare you
