    Hi there.. my computer is constantly downloading packets from the internet but I don't know what it's downloading.

    Is there any program that I could use to find out what application is downloading data from the internet? Please help.

    I tried looking into the Task Manager and didn't find anything unusual there.
    I tried looking into the msconfig for unusual applications in the startup.
    I tried configuring the firewall for unwanted "internet connecting" programs.

    I stopped the Windows Automatic Update 'cause I thougt that was downloading the updates but my little terminals in the task bar still keep blinking constantly.

    (Internet Monitoring Software, or Internet Access Monitoring Software.. I don't know what they are called)

    Thanks in advance

    OS: Windows XP Home edition
    Anti Virus: Avast!
    Computer: Compaq PresarioM2000
