Who is my computer talking to? TCPView tells all.

Microsoft has bought up one of my favorite tools for figuring out what my computer is really up to. There are plenty of times that I see network activity lights on either my ethernet adapter of my router and I have no idea why my computer is talking to anyone. I could pop up a command line window and run netstat, or I could run the lovely tcpview and watch it dynamically track who my computer is chatting with. Well, at least I can see what program on my computer is talking. It's almost always benign, but I feel better knowing.
