You maybe sitting there idle, but the computer is always busy communicating
the issue is who with.
Once a computer is connected to the internet or router, there is constant communication going on.
Your broadband connection likely needs constant communication with the ISP. Is SkyTel your ISP?
Without a router, you will see a lot of packets flying around even those not meant for you, but meant for your assigned IP.
Considering that you have Skype running all the time, incoming nad outgoing communication is to be expected, so long as it is requested by you.
Adobe reader always wants to communicate with Adobe for updates.
I suspect GoogleUpdate does the same. I doubt it needs to run all the time.
If you have one computer and no printer, spoolsvc can be shut off from running all the time.
I don't know what TUProgST, ATKKBService, daemon, GamerOSD, RTGDCPL do. Daemon sounds slightly suspicious - it might be running some outbound service.
You need to identify what should or should not run all the time and which of these require connections.
Kaspersky logs should tell you the source and destination of the communication.
You can watch all live connections using the Sysinternals (now Microsoft) viewer TCPviewhttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb897437.aspx
A better Task list because it can show you connections and properties of every process running is Process explorerhttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb896653.aspx
Then you might be able to square what you see with what you think should be permitted.
