    The only normal things are if something is sending to port 25 (outbound SMTP email) or recieving port 110 (inbound POP3 email).. and also some P2P clients like utorrent

    If you ever tried to send/recieve email and one got stuck... that may cause this... look at the properties in the Email Scanner and see where the AVG QUEUE folders are at and delete all files found in those directories or subdirectories... make sure to not delete a directory by mistake...

    If that doesn't take care of it.. there is something on your system that is trying to use the ports... AVG doesn't initiate these by itself so something else is.

    Make sure you scan you system with all of your anti-spyware apps, (spy-bot S&D) ad-aware, and so on.
