This morning at about 3 AM, I sat down at the computer to view some webpages, and noticed the internet was moving incredibly slow. I closed my browser and checked the dial-up indicator on the task bar, and noticed that even though I wasn't doing anything, the network was in motion. I opened up PeerGuardian, which is almost always running, and noticed I was getting hit thousands of times per minute. Here's a shot of the PeerGuardian log:

This had apparently been going on some time before I even got there.
I ran AVG antivirus, with up-to-date virus definitions, and found nothing.
Ran AdAware and Spybot S&D, also found nothing.
Ran Hijack This and ended any unnecessary processes.

As of right now, it's slowed down. I'm getting constantly prodded by ChinaNet, though, as soon as I dial up the ISP and before I even open a browser.

And when the computer is sitting idle and offline, PeerGuardian is still detecting a few things:

Now, what I want to know is, do I have a virus, or am I getting hacked or what? How do I stop whatever is happening?

(Sorry for using screenshots, by the way. I don't know how to cut & paste from PeerGuardian... :thumbsup: )
