VLC is a skinnable, feature-rich media player that supports a wide variety of multimedia file and streaming formats. It can play files while they download, from inside RAR files, online radio stations, convert video formats, and much more.

CurrPorts v2.20 Updated

Checker on 25 Aug 2015
  • 116KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 Aug 2015
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

CurrPorts displays the list of all currently opened networking ports on your local computer. For each TCP/IP and UDP port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description, and so on), the time that the process was created, and the user that created it.

In addition, CurrPorts allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports, and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file , XML file, or to tab-delimited text file. The program will automatically mark with pink suspicious ports owned by unidentified applications (applications without version information and icons).

  • CurrPorts now displays the process names (Some of them without the full path) for most processes when you run it without elevation ('Run As Administrator'). Also, the 32-bit version of CurrPorts now detects 64-bit processes properly.

What this tool can that Mark Russinovich's TCPView can't do, I don't understand :?

I think that TCPView is better in any form.

@Yuval M.
You should try Sysinternals applications

I like this program. I recently used it to notice some suspicious looking port activities. I was able to close the ports down and then turn them to stealth using my firewall program. Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.

Not true, it can scan directories. The option is right there on the startup menu.

Mike.S.G. on 2011-05-20 06:43

@Gmacri

Select the 'Path' to scan if you don't want a whole drive.

mrpink on 2012-01-29 21:08

I think i'll keep this one. WinDirStat is prettier but Spacesniffer is way faster and natively portable

Have a look at the license agreement page, which is displayed when the tool is run.

Cool program!

By the same author(s), YUMI has the additional advantage of enabling multiple 'Live' distros to coexist on a portable USB drive: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/
