my netstat shows a couple dozen active IP addresses with a netstat check. Is this normal? Should they be culled for unwanted IP sites?

In that case, you might want to check the "Foreign Address" IP addresses. Especially if you see "Established" in the 'State' column. But in a normal environment, connections are constantly being made and broken and it's not unusual to see hundreds of entries when doing a 'netstat -a'

Wireshark should help you see whats going in or out of your network. A good firewall will also do this. (My personal preference is Comodo)
