Using Wireshark, I recently discovered that my computer (running on windowsWindows 10) is sending ping requests to Google's servers. According to wireshark, my computer is sending ICMP requests and receive responses. After rebooting, ping is starting again... I

I have tried to close all apps running, but still those ICMP requests are sent every secondssecond. Sometimes the IP address changes but still on Google's server  : usually, addresses are something like 216.58.2XX.X

I tried netstat -anonetstat -ano but I haven't seen sames IP's adressesaddresses.

The solution I found was with PeerBlock and I'm adding the IP addresses to the block list...

Are those requests to Google something normal  ? Hum, not so sure ! whatWhat tools can I use to find the program that is sending these requests ?

Any ideas ?
