Help with Windoze XP - sort of

I've just managed to set up a little 2 box Home LAN, my machine being the gateway, and the rest of the family on a Windoze XP machine. I'm running Slack 10 and it works a treat but the XP machine is a nightmare ! It keeps sending tons of data through the LAN, of which some is destined for the internet. I've tried checkinf for adware and viruses but this made no difference, and using tcpdump I've got the IP addresses of where it's going below is a bit of it.

My question is does anybody know how to stop it !
