But Tcpview doesn't show anything for icmp - which is what was happening 
in this case.  However, if the "guilty" process is also using tcp, Tcpview 
will likely identify it.

On the other hand, a firewall that limits outbound traffic to only 
"permitted" programs would probably nail the program involved (Zonealarm 
is one example of such a firewall).
