I use a Networx monitor on my computer and usually use like 2-3 gigs a day, left my computer running while i went to sleep, When i woke up i looked at my Networx monitor and noticed it read a 300giabyte Download and upload amount since I went to sleep, this started like 30 mins after i left my computer idle and stopped when i started working on it, It shows me hourly usage and says that like 50-70 gigs an hour were being used, What happened? What caused this? and HOW DO I FIX IT?

I'm not familiar with the Networx software but a 300 Gb download received must be pertaining to the overall or including the past activity similar to the Windows Network connection status.

Open Task Manager and check the Network tab Bytes sent, received throughput to compare the readings. The Network connection status for wired or wireless would also show your sent and received data.

It depends on what programs, browsers or process needs background updating. The Network acitivity Sent and Received is similar to the Networx task query from your original post. Netstat command and Process Explorer might be able to distingush the background packets including this article to help you understand if there are certain unknown connections.
