Connection appears to be working overtime

  Tycho 07:48 20 Jun 2005

I logged on to my dialup account this morning, synchronised my PDA, received one or two emails and then checked my last thread on this discussion board.

All wa normal except for the fact that the little pair of computers in the system tray continued to show continuous activity for about 3 minutes. It's stopped now but should I be concerned.

I run all the usual security stuff and updated it all on Saturday.

I would welcome comments.

Could have been any number of things, most like non-malevolent: automatic updating of your anti-virus program (Avast has had a fairly major update in the last day or two) or Windowsupdate downloading something to take two examples.

Do you have a firewall installed? If so, take a look at its logs.

I use free ZoneAlarm. I'll have a look and let you know...

Nothing there for today. It's all calm now.
