Hello, I hope this is the appropriate forum to ask this question and get some help on it. Lately I have noticed that when my computer is idle, only a few background applications running, my network is busy at work, sending and receiving bytes. The bytes don't come all at once, there seems to be specific pattern to it, 60, 500-700, 1200-2000, then 0, then it repeats, and I will send around 500-600 on the 0's. I have ran a series of tests including, Microsoft Security Essentials, MalwareBytes and SuperAnti Virus, all of these have brought back nothing, my system is clean. I couldn't help to feel that this was not correct though, with my back to the wall I was forced to reformat. Surprisingly after I formatted and reinstalled my OS(Win 7 Pro x64), the network still follows this same pattern! I'm practically pulling out my hair!
Let me know if I should post some kind of log or what steps I should take.
