I've noticed when using WinMX & I'm not transfering any files to anyone,
there is still a steady outgoing traffic of about 8kb/s.

If it's not spyware (none of my spyware programs finds anything),
then what is it sending ?

All other internet programs are also blocked or disconnected at the time.

This isn't a problem for unlimited dial up connections but what about capped high speed ones running this program on idle ?

If you've done a Primary connection, it uses a small constant amount of bandwidth.. Try changing the connection options :-)
