Why is my PC sending Data?

  Tycho 12:39 31 Jul 2007

I have been surfing for an hour or so and had a look at my connection status. I noticed that it is continually sending data, even when my browser is closed. I would gues by looking at the counter that there is not much going out. About 100Bytes/s. Bytes, not kb or kB.

I run lots of security software: spyware balster, adaware, avg, a squared, spybot, zone alarm. Is there something untoward happening.

All the best

Many thanks, all. That's good to know.
