    Hi,

    My computer became infected with a number of viruses that are now cleared.

    However I have noticed that the send bytes is 5,768,960 and the received is 3,894,765.

    My internet connection is broadband 2MB.

    Is this correct or the result of a virus/trojan.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    The numbers will depend on your pattern of internet usage. However if the number of bytes sent is greatly more than received, it could be that your machine has been turned into a zombie or people are downloading from from your PC using P2P, or could be normal.

    On my PC it is 75,830,000 sent and 199,680,000 received. You might try restarting Windows and without using your internet connection for a while, look at the numbers again.

    Hi,

    If this is P2P or my computer has been turned into a Zombie is there a way of stopping this.

    Thanks

    It could be normal, but let's see what is running on your computer.

    Go here to download HJTsetup.exe: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HJTSetup.exe
    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    A 3rd party firewall usually helps!

    Yes there is by doing a HijackThis and letting the gold shield that will take care of it for you do their job. You say you had a lot of infections then HJT is the one of two ways of getting rid of them.

    Please psot the HijackThis log file?
