I believe port 14147 is used by Filezill, do you have that program?

In the Start Menu, type "MSConfig" and review your items. You will see the option to remove it's startup entry there.....

Can also use this method to find the owning process to that dialog box....

Process Explorer
http://live.sysinternals.com/procexp.exe

Use the above, to find out what process owns that message box. There is a little crosshairs at the top, that you can drag onto another window, and the owning process will highlight. Then you know where you have to start to rectify....

jegajothy--The program causing this is trying to connect to YOUR OWN PC (127.0.0.1) .  If you clicked OK and entered a password if needed, you would have a "loopback".

On an outside chance, go to IE Tools|Internet Options|Connections|LAN Settings and see if a proxy server designated 127.0.0.1 is set up for the browser.

in response to jcimarron, I am confused why anyone would want to loop to one's own pc again.
On the 2nd suggestion, I checked and there is only this under General:

jegajothy--"there is only this under General"
General??  Are you following some procedure I suggested?

"I am confused why anyone would want to loop to one's own pc".  This is often used as a method to prevent access to an undesireable website.  It is the basis for the modern use of the HOSTS file.

But I gather this is nothing you have set up.

So after using my suggestion, what is the current status?
