Laptop starts exchanging packets of information with my protected wireless network the minute it boots up. Sent this message to Windows XP forum and was told to try here.
I'm running XP home and have a DSL connection running through a protected wireless connection. As soon as I turn on the laptop, internet activity starts and runs nonstop unless I disable my wireless connection. If I click on the connection status several thousand packets are being sent and recieved. How can I find out where this internet activity is coming from and disable it?
Ran TCPView and posted it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic378011.html
Was told they see nothing suspicious but I'm sure there's still a problem. My good computer has been connected to the net for 8 hours and has transfered about 13,000 packets (normal comunication). The bad computer transfered 789,000 packets in 1 hour 11 minutes on the same network before I shut it off. Never had this much activity in the past on this computer and it's the same no matter what wireless network I'm on. Slows the computer and internet connection to a crawl.
