today I installed NetLimiter 4 software which helps set a limit of bandwidth of each app is running on windows and have other features like knowing each app where is connected too (sorry for the terms and language English not my native lang) so I was checking each app where is connected then I found that system process was connecting to hundreds of ips around the world on protocol 137 which is NetBIOS port i don't know much about networking this info i gathered only with some quick google searches is this normal or i have some kind of virus or something on my pc

Like i said, I don't know anything about apps like that and/or why Windows is pinging IP's. Have you tried disabling the app and checking your network traffic?, it may not be related to the app itself but other apps in Windows?. :)

I won't give you advice about disabling Windows processes as I don't want to be responsible for you crashing your system. :(
