    Hi There,

    I have read a few of the stickys relating to large amounts of data and malware and it says not to follow the procedure as it was for that user only, so I hope I'm doing the right thing here by posting my own thread?

    I have for the past month or so wondered why my ADSL cap is reached almost near the beginning of the month and see that large amounts of data are being transferred up, for instance just yesterday, I downloaded 1GB and also uploaded 911MB which I know both are not correct!

    How am I able to determine what is sending this data, so that I can disable, delete, uninstall it? I also don't know if the stats on the line are accurate?!?

    I've run Windows Defender and Norton 2012 Reputation Scanners and all seems fine.

    Please help, I'm unsure of whether some malware has crept into my system undetected.

    Kind Regards,
    Riaan
