I have been online 24/7 with low bandwidth usage per hour for years. Beginning in early July 2016 my daily bandwidth usage jumped to 10 to 15 gigabytes per day. Without having any browsers or other bandwidth using programs working, Something is using from 300 to 500mbs per hour. I have traced it down to regsvr32. It is using 80% of my daily bandwidth. My ISP has allocated my account with 350 gigabytes per 30 days. My normal usage is 150 gigabytes per 30 days. I monitor my usage thru Networx. When I monitor network activity thru the Task Manager, Microsoft Register Server is using 80% of my daily use.


I have run HitmanPro, Malwarebytes, and use Advanced System Pro. Plus Windows Defender. Something is receiving and sending large amounts of data, invisibility, or through regsvr32. Anybody got any ideas. I've been a computer user for 36 years, this has me stumped. Thanks
