Something Is Downloading...

  XFX 18:46 10 Oct 2003

My firewall is indicating that something is constantly downloading on to my PC at 1.2k. I have done a virus scan, no virus. I have run both Spybot and adaware, Both have given the all clear.
So what is down loading on to my PC? Where do I go to find out and how do I stop it?
I have also tried turning my E-mail client off as well. but something is downloading onto my PC.

can you help?

Go through you list of application that you have allowed through the firewall and stop them in turn. When the downloading has stopped you have you culprit.

However i think it'll turn out to be normal Internet background trafic...

I have blocked all the applications in my firewall and still the downloading continues. How can I find out what it is?

are you on broadband?

your download light will be on quite a lot but as jester says above it will probally just be your isp checking you are still there.

No I haven't got the auto update activated.

Yes I am on broadband, have been for 10 months, But I am sure the traffic indicator on my Firewall(Sygate Pro)wasn't constantly on until today.
