Hi all,

I have used computers for many years and when I have rarely had a problem I have always managed to solve it myself or found answers already out there. This is the first question I can remember asking about computing.

I have a Dell Dimension 2000 desktop machine, XP SP2 and IE6 I have a webserver and MySQL database server. My girlfriend has a Fujitsu laptop and we share the internet connection (Brightview Broadband- static IP) with XP ICS using a wireless network. We have no file sharing software or instant messaging.

intermittent low rate of traffic on my ADSL connection
Large volumes sent/received if left unattended
Not affected by presence of wireless network

Using Spysweeper evaluation + Antivirus
Using ZoneAlarm personal firewall (free version) - allows this traffic/activity even when lock is engaged
Spybot search and destroy, up to date and finds nothing
Lavasoft Adaware - up to date and finds nothing
TcpView (sysinternals) - does not seem to detect the activity visible on modem connection (IPv6, tunnel?)

RootkitRevealer log:
HKU\S-1-5-21-3389822589-1902703575-190109941-1007\RemoteAccess\InternetProfile 07/11/2006 10:08 33 bytes Data mismatch between Windows API and raw hive data.

Most of these entries I understand are false positives and one related to the fact it's a Dell
The restore point entry has occurred since I attempted a roll back to a configuration, the traffic was still present so I undid the rollback then this entry shows up from rootkit revealer.

I have also run:
Panda Active Scan (found nothing)
Panda Internet Security + Antivirus - evaluation (found nothing)
Bitdefender online scan (hung on penultimate object in scan)

I am not an expert but I have carefully gone through these tools and their results and I just can't find anything that is causing this or even that suspicious. So here I am asking for help, any would be much appreciated

Thanks for reading
