it's ok. Many programs use sockets as IPC ways.
if it was a different computer, then it might have been a problem. But those
are just ok.
If you really want to know the application using them (I don't think win
netstat has a -p option) you may try turning off the apps running on it one by
one and then see if the ports get free.
BTW, it's a bit offtopic for this list ;)
