    My transfer rate for receiving and Transmitting does not seem right.

    I am transmitting 3,390,175 and received 28,899,047

    I am not downloading anything, uploading anything just surfing.

    I have scanned my computer using Ad-ware, CCleaner, CWShredder, Spyblaster, online scanner from Windows, facetime.
    I have also used Symantec removal tool for w32.Kelvir.W worm which I thought I was having.

    Last week, my transmit and received figures were roughly the same when I just surfed. I feel this is not normal.

    If those numbers keep increasing as you surf, then my guess is that you are looking at the number of bytes sent and received in you Connection Properties. Those just count bytes since your connection was enable, not upload/download rate.

    In the taskbar, next to the time, the icon that looks like two computers one behind the other. WHen I click on that I see the numbers above. I know its the total sent (left number) and total received (right number).
    What bothers me is that my received is SOOO much greater than my sent. I have check this numbers before but its has always been more or less than the same. Only recently has the difference between the two been so big.

    Any possible solutions?

    P.S. How do I know whether I've got a keylogger software installed on my computer? I didnt install one but might have unintentionally when I "updated" yahoo messenger Japanese version.

    That's perfectly normal. If you click a single link, you could receive tons of bytes, even viewing a simple webpage. There is nothing wrong here...

    Yesterday and today something weird happened.
    Im just surfing, when my browser "crashes" and a pop-up comes up telling my something about my system registry might be corrupted and suggest I do an online scan of my computer.
    Yesterday was from www.errorsafe.com and today it was from www.systemdoctor.com

    Yesterday after getting the pop-up from errorsafe.com I closed all windows, opened them up and resumed surfing without a glitch.

    Is this anyway related to my received and sent being unbalanced?
