Now that I know about this, I am monitoring it. If/When it happens again I will dig deeper into what of chrome causes it.

Bang on the money.... chrome.exe had used over 28,000 connections to 127.0.0.1. Can I close/kill the TIME_WAITs?

Thanks, this all sounds very plausible... as I said in my question, I am not in front of the machine right now, so I will try this out when I am later tonight. I'll let you know the outcome!

Thanks @Crippledsmurf - I already use Google's Public DNS but the connections fail even when using an IP.

comment Weird Excel 2010 VBA Window Behaviour
as in my code? I can't see why that would open the window when I RDP... :/ It doesn't do it to any file without VBA. Maybe you can create a file and add a line and see if it happens for you. I can repeat your steps to see.

comment Weird Excel 2010 VBA Window Behaviour
@Raystafarian I only ever open it to change a function I have written or to write a new one. I have not tried just opening the window and doing nothing but closing it. It doesn't happen unless I first open the VBA window though.

comment BIND9 on CentOS issue querying from Windows
This was the issue, although I thought I had stopped the iptables process so ignored this step initially.
