I have disabled all automatic updates with now result. I have the following programs installed for security.
Additionally I have done various scans with different house call antivirus and nothing. I mostly use this system for mail and browsing the internet so the following programs are normally running.
I don't have any P2P applications installed and no SkyPe either. I have now reach the stage that I am considering formatting and doing a clean install but as a last resort I thought I would ask here for help. Right now I am only turning on the router and connecting to the internet when I need to do work on the above applications.
