Just want to know if there is any way of finding out what programs are using the internet connection.
Even when I am not using the internet there are still alot of bytes been sent and recieved, and when I do use the internet it is quite slow because of this. I am on a 56k modem.

Have run Adaware and Spybot search and destroy.

Would appreciate any help.

Install Sygate firewall (http://smb.sygate.com/products/spf_standard.htm) its free for home use.

With it you can block everything apart from your browser and email client.

Or zonealarm (//htp:zonelabs.com) and the go thru the tutorials to learn how to configure it . It'll only let programs access the net that you have authorised. (no guarantee about the sneaks)

I have used it for five years and found it very helpfull. But do read the tutorials.

Using the windows command prompt, one can use the netstat command to determine which ports are open and being used. Simply type in netstat from the command prompt, and a list of established, waiting, and listening ports will be displayed. Then you can interpret this and find out if any bad things are using your internet. It is a good idea to use the command "netstat -a" to determine all of the ports in use.

Do what roddy_boy suggested. Maybe even "netstat -an" and post the results here and we maybe able to tell you what, who and why your PC and the remote object are communicating.

tcpview (http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/TcpView.html) will reveal which processes are trying to connect out (or in).

Hey there,
These are the netstat -a results. Looks like there are quite a few.

Looks like Symtec is hogging the lines.
