When my computer is conneted to the internet (BTbroadband) and is idle something is being downloaded. I have run virus and spyware and have come up empty handed. A Hijackthis log is shown below:

That log is old, but follow the below

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Do these and reboot before the next step.

Then get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put
it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
log here.

There obviously could be something 'nasty' going on in your computer because broadband systems are more useful to the bad guys. Hopefully, a HJT log from the latest version will clarify the situation.

However, you will be aware that XP will attempt to contact MS computers fairly regularly for things like automatic updates unless you have it disabled. (One article I read suggested that there were at least 16 functions that could initiate a contact and MS, apparently, will admit to at least 11. I have no idea if this is true as I don't have XP).

I don't see anything in the log you posted that I recognise as a firewall program. If you had one, you could see which programs were attempting to access the web and decide whether or not you wanted them to do so. I believe that the XP SP1 'firewall' only tries to prevent incoming contacts (possibly so that users are not alarmed at the number of attempts to 'phone home')?.
