I have just read a thread and this utility was mentioned so I ran it. I have LOADS of TIME_WAIT and ESTABLISHED mainly on localhost and a few on websites. How many connections are 'normal' and should I worry about any of them ?

There's no such thing as a "normal" number (despite what T1 seem to think), it depends on what you have or recently have had running on your system.
Close your browser and anything else running that uses an internet connection such as P2P etc, wait 30 seconds and run netstat. You should see very few connections and most will be in wait state. Leave for another minute or two and run again. Now there should be none active (established) at all other than any internet security products you have (firewall etc).
If there are still connections, run netstat -b and this will then tell you what application (executable) is using them.
