Hi all,

My internet was running slow so I decided to check it out. I started the Resource monitor from the Task Manager and I notice that the process 'System' is uploading a lot of data, even more than a Mozy task I had running. I have a screenshot showing the numbers - most of the time it was around the 900,000 B/sec mark but while I've been watching I've seen it hit 1,000,000 and even 2,000,000.

What is this process, and why is it uploading so much data?

It is possible that your PC has been taken over and is being used as a slave to transmit. Have you checked for viruses etc?
Suggest you check with the Security Forum.

Can you bring down the window listed TCP Connections and Open Ports?
