How to find which websites your computer is secretly connecting:-
So now the main problem is that How to find which websites your computer is secretly connecting. We have an easy method to sort out this problem using the netstat command from a command prompt or PowerShell window. This works with all Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP.
If you’re still using XP, make sure you are running at least Service Pack 2.We will use the netstat command to generate a list of everything that has made an Internet connection in a specified amount of time.

- At the command prompt, type the following command and press Enter.
netstat -abf 5 > activity.txt
in this command meaning of “-abf5” –a shows all connections and listening ports and –b shows you what application is making the connection, and the –f displays the full DNS name for each connection.
you can also use -n to display the ip address. and 5 will poll every 5 seconds for connections to make it more easy to track what is going on and the results are saved into the activity.txt file.

The resulting file will list all processes on your computer (browsers, IM clients,
email programs, etc.) that have made an internet connection in the last two minutes,
or however long you waited before pressing Ctrl + C. It also lists which processes
connected to which websites.
If you see process names or website addresses with which you are not familiar, you
can search for “what is (name of unknown process)” in Google and see what it is.

programs. However, if it seems like a bad site, you can use Google again to
find out how to get rid of it.
