Hello for the last few months ive been observing my uploads and it does something like 15-40kbps a second all the time this is a huge problem for me because uploads factor into my Internet Plan and it is eating the limited internet i have
i have a 3G Wireless Dodo Broadband also i tried zone alarm feature Engage internet lock and that stops it fine but lags everything else i also tried a program that monitors what is useing my bandwith ect and its just a long list of svchost.exe
i really hope there is a way i can stop Uploading because i only get 7 gb of download a month

This looks like it could be malware-related. I would suggest running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Download the file and run the installer. Have it update the definitions file and let it run a full scan. Then have it remove any infections found.


You may also want to start Windows in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. To do this, start the computer and press F8. When the Windows startup menu appears, use the arrow keys to highlight SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING and press ENTER. Download and run TCPView like you did before and see if those processes are still hogging all the network resources.

I suggest you post in the Am I Infected forum on this site. Let's find out for sure whether or not you have a malware problem.

MalwareBytes is not an anti virus application. Again, if I were you I'd post in the AM I INFECTED forum. Let's be certain one way or the other.

Generally svchost is several of the essential microsoft services and TCPView (in my opinion) does not give you a very good idea of what is actually using bandwidth. The biggest offender of bandwidth use under svchost is generally windows automatic updates - and usually this is only a problem on a very out-of-date machine... one that may have had clean install from a old windows xp setup disc. I might recommend something such as the free version of netlimiter if you want to measure actual MB that certain programs are actually using... On a side note are you using Antivirus protection or seeing popups that would be a better indication of whether you are infected?

[edit] ... glad you figured it out on your own... I was typing this as you were posting your reply.
