Billions of packets sent

By Archaius
Apr 20, 2008
  1. Hi all!

    I've been having some problems with my PC lately. Whenever I connect to the internet, it seems the 'packets sent' is absolutely flooded - usually hitting the billions within a hour or so.

    I've read through a few posts here regarding the same problem and so have downloaded HiJackThis as instructed. I've attached the log file and hope someone can help!

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you have Wireless by any chance?

    If you do is it encrypted with WPA ( or better )?

    Hi Time, thanks for your quick reply.
    I'm afraid I'm on a wired connection at the moment.

    get a copy of Cports; when run as Admin, it can see every program that opens a port
    and you can then elect to Close the connection or Kill the program.
