    Hope this is in the correct section guys. I have Windows XP installed with Bootcamp 1.4 on my Macbook. I also have Peer Guardian 2 installed on Windows XP. Every once in a while Peer Guardian will absolutely freak out and start blocking a ton of UDP and TCP connections that are apparently dealing with Apple. It just did it to me again. It must have blocked it at least a couple of hundred times before I just got sick of it and shut off Peer Guardian. My question is, what exactly is trying to get out my Macbook and why? Is it a process that's running that is sending info to Apple?

    I know Phoenix Labs stated they blocked Apple for a particular reason. Don't remember what and I can't find info. Is this why?

    It is probably just the bootcamp utility running in background and checking for updated windows drivers.

    Maybe Apple Software Update running in XP checking for updates?
