    Default Tracking down something using Java

    I have a program on my Windows server that uses java, and it works just fine. A few days ago, everything began running very slowly and I noticed the server was using a lot of network traffic. I used Resource Monitor to determine where all the data was going to/coming from and blocked the IP in my firewall. This fixed the data issue. I was using another program, TCPView, to try and track down what was going on, when I see the process javaw.exe was using a lot of different port connections, and it was also trying to connect to another IP address. I again banned that IP address, but now I see new processes constantly opening up, it looks like it's trying to dial home but since I blocked the IP it can't, and is constantly refreshing itself.

    My biggest fear is I have some kind of virus and trojan installed, but I can't find it. I've ran ESET and it came back with nothing. Is there any way I can figure out what program specifically is having javaw.exe connect to an outside source?

    what program specifically is having javaw.exe
    Can you replace the javaw.exe program with one that would give you some data about who is calling it?
    It would probably have to be written in a language like C.
    This is mainly an OS question, not much java can do at this level.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.
