    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: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897437.aspx

    Wireshark is an advanced ethernet packet capture utility: http://www.wireshark.org/ It takes a while to learn how to use though.
