Buddy215 - thanks for the tips on securing the hot spot. Thinking the same thing, I used my wife's computer instead of mine on the hotspot. The bandwidth usage was normal. I'm convinced the problem is in my computer and not the hot spot itself. To be doubly certain, I'll take the security steps you referred me to then test bandwidth using my computer and hers.
I appreciate the fast response.

If it turns out to be your computer then you should look for programs such as Bit Torrent....P2Ps.
Could be malware using your computer to serve spam or part of a botnet.

Those should show up in your add/ remove list.
You can post a new topic in Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs after following the
instructions for creating a DDS log in instruction #6 found here: Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help
Once you have posted the new topic do not bump it until one of the members there has responded.
Not sure how long that could be....could be days. If your computer has malware on it those specialists who volunteer their
services in that forum will find it.
