    Hi,

    Over the last couple of days I have notice that someone appears to be using a LOT of my internet bandwith. On th 26th while I wasn't home but connected to my internet someone used 190GB!

    As soon as I noticed this I disabled my internet (I use a direct connection) while I wasn't around. When its disabled nothing seems to be happening. The next day I enabled it again while I was using the internet and over the last 2 hours I have used 7GB while only browsing the internet.

    Could this be a virus and if so how can I stop it? I use Windows 7 and firefox if that helps.

    Nothing else appears to be out of the ordinary.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
