Constant network activity when idle - despite firewall, av, peerblock, ect...


Recommended Posts

My motherboard came with a "fastlan" tool that is constantly showing my upload/download speeds over the network.

The computer is freshly built and the first things I did after getting windows 7 up and running were to install symantec and maleware bytes. I tried out zonealarm but it was freezing the system on boot so I just went with the windows firewall. I am also behind an airport express router.

I also installed peerblock more recently and block the microsoft list - so I could rule out background connections to the microsoft servers.

Still, im seeing constant network activity even when the system is idle after a fresh boot.

It isn't something that is only happening at the beginning - it is constant throughout the computer being on.

I do not run any stupid windows widgets or anything like that.

Here is my highjackthis log.

I am extremely grateful for any help/analysis/comments

Could you speculate as to what other things besides maleware could be causing this?

Are these things worrisome?

I've set everything I can think of to not autoupdate and I figure the things that are anyway should be doing it right after boot or when i launch the program.

Peerblock is just showing the routine upload traffic to microsoft servers.

But I am gonna try out that wireshark program right now

Other websites are extremely upset that I asked for help up here and are refusing to allow me to post on their site until I have everything removed from up here.

So, can this be locked?

I do really appreciate the help and am disappointed and appalled by this response from the rest of the community
