Why does my PC constantly try to contact EBAY?

My router log shows that my computer constantly tries to connect to 66.135.198.195 which resolves to Ebay ( name servers I think ). Is there something trying to 'phone home' I wonder.

Today for instance I haven't been on Ebay at all but my router shows blocked connection attempts every few minutes. The entries always show "First packet in connection is not a SYN packet: TCP" Huh

No , I don't run anything like that - well MSN Messenger sometimes but I normally close it after booting.

How about a toolbar that has some info about ebay on it?
Or even lastminute bidder programes?

just to say, you can stop msn from loading up at startup (its in the options of MSN messenger)
