Danger, danger Will Robinson. Could be a sign of hacking? Use Fport which
is free from www.foundstone.com/knowledge to see what if anything is
listening on that port, or use a free sniffer to see the content of those
packets, or install a firewall software such as www.sygate.com or
www.kerio.com to see what software program generated those packets [assuming
they are continuing].

Knowing the destination IP address and the other port number involved would
have been useful. You can look up the destination IP address at
www.network-tools.com

Other things you could do to try to confirm or deny whether the computer is
compromised:
