lots of connections on 65.55.158.118 port 3544 to windows 7 computer

Hi,

During the past 3 hours, I have received about 850 connections from the ip 65.55.158.118 on port 3544, all of which have been blocked by my firewall.

What are these connections for exactly? I did the WHOIS on the ip and it belongs to Microsoft.
