Internet connection is sending out more packets than it is receiving
My Internet connection is sending out more packets than it is receiving...
Before it was working fine but now all of a sudden I see an increase in traffic and PC is slower...when I clicked on the LAN connection then I see that the number of packets sent is way way more than packets received........No idea what's going on there... If anybody has any idea as to whats going on and how to monitor what is coming in and what is going out...please let me know...Prompt reply is much appreciated........

Do you see outgoing packets when your PC is sitting idle? And are you running any P2P software such as Limewire or Bitorrent (we cannot help you use these, only help remove them)?

TCPView will help you see what your computer is connecting to:

Wireshark is an advanced ethernet packet capture utility: It takes a while to learn how to use though.
