Hi there,

I have a ADSL connection with a 3GB limit per month.

I do not run any P2P or similar software.

For some or other reason I have huge uploads on a dialy basis which accumulates to my bandwith limit.

I have no idea which program does these huge uploads, any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Henlo Conradie

Click Fix Checked

Two things I noticed, unless I have missed something and that is that you have no antivirus or firewall running. Do yourself a BIG favor and install an antivirus program and a firewall



AVG is a Free antivirus program, Links to free firewalls can be found here

I would also suggest that you do a windows update to AT LEAST Win 2000 SP3 and install the various critical updates available at Windows update

These are just suggestions

Oooh, Putasolution is so right on when he says to install a firewall and an antivirus. You are literally asking for trouble on your computer without both of those. I would suggest Norton Antivirus if you can afford it. Of course, if you would like to get an antivirus program and a firewall in one package, get Norton Internet Security 2003. I run Norton Internet Security 2003 Pro. I like it because it blocks ads. However, ZoneAlarm Pro also blocks ads. ZoneAlarm also offers a free firewall but it has less features. However, it will do the job in protecting your computer. I have tried AVG Antivirus before and it does do the job well.
