PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



I have a strange problem. An end users computer was getting very slow. (Long time to open up programs and just get around in general) So I looked in the task manager to see if anything was using up the processor. Only 0-2% of the processor was in use so that wasn't the problem.

I tried many things and finally figured out that her network connection was sending and recieving all kinds of Packets. (She has no programs open) When I shut down the network connection, everthing speeds up 5x. I have done all the virus checks from serveral different places, updated all windwos patches, and ran several spyware programs with no luck.

I am looking for a reason why this connectin would be moving so much data through it, with no programs using it? (For example: After 4 hours of up time, (Packets sent: 50,000,000) (Packets recieved: 80,000,000.) This is in the network connection status

p.s. Tried installing ZoneAlarm to see if it would catch anything moving this data. Didn't see anything.

Any help would be great!

swirlsbro:

You didn't include much in the way of details in your post.  I take it the PC is on a broadband connection of some sort? Cable? DSL? Is there a  router or firewall in front of it? What brand and model of modem are you using?

Perhaps you might want to try installing and using one of the many
programs that monitors which processes are sending packets. For my own machines, I tend to use TCPVIEW from sysinterals (www.sysinternals.com). It is a free dynamic program, similar to NETSTAT, which displays very helpful information for just these kinds of situations.
