I have an application that monitors my upload and download speed. And for the past day there has been something uploading at around 200k/s. Is there a program out there that will run and let me know what that is? Because it could be as simple as a program I have or it could be someone accessing my computer. Any ideas?

Thanks

If you have a software firewall, it may have packet logs that will tell you what application is sending them.

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately I dont use a firewall software...eeik. I know, but I run quite a few other programs that help keep it clean and just use the windows firewall. Thank you for the term "packet log" because it looks like there are a few programs out there that should do this. Anyone have an recommendations as to a good packet logger or packet tracker that is intuitive and easy to use? Thanks a bunch.

You should actually get a firewall so you can view the packet logs and because the Windows Firewall only stops incoming traffic to your computer but it doesn't monitor outgoing traffic which a firewall does.
