Hi,

I'm using Windows XP Home, and under Network Connections -> Local area connection status,

there is a popup window which tells you the status, duration, speed and activity of the Local Area Connection.

My problem starts here, under the same window, the Sent value for Activity is extremely bigger than the Received value. When I say "extremely bigger", I mean :

Sent = 18,590,047,886 packets
Received = 269,518 packets

I'm not sure if i was infected which a spam/adware, so I did a scan with AVG-Free. Nothing came up.

Now I'm attempting to record and analyze the traffic packets using Wireshark (AKA Ethereal), but I'm no expert so I don't/can't see anything fishy or out of place.

I'm not even sure :thumbsup: if this is a problem to start with, maybe my computer is just sending out alot of random stuff to LAN? (which I'm sure it shouldn't happen anyways...)

Thanks in advance,

JB
