Came across a post by Tim Rains on the MSDN Community feed that talks about a nice utility:

Port Reporter is a logging service that logs port to process activity on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 systems. This service runs in the background and does not require any user intervention. It generates text log files that contain data that will help determine what your system is doing. Specifically, these log files contain data on running processes and the TCP and/or UDP ports that processes use. On Windows Server 2003– and Windows XP–based computers, the Port Reporter service can log the following information:

  • The ports that are used
  • The processes that use the port
  • Whether a process is a service
  • The modules (.dll, etc) that a process loaded
  • The user accounts that start a process
