Sending out Huge Amounts of Data:Help

Post by johncoll » Wed, 05 Jan 2005 02:17:06


Hi,
My computer (W98) when on line is sending out huge amounts of data of some
type when. It sends out 10-20x the amount coming in. How can I discover what
program/script/spyware is doing this and how do I get rid of it?

Thanks,

John

Download HijackThis vs 1.99 @ http://www.yqcomputer.com/
first run the program ask it to scan and save a log file then post those
results to http://www.yqcomputer.com/
help boards for hijackthis (google "hijackthis log" and read
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ~merijn/htlogtutorial.html ) You might also try
scanning the log yourself and look for suspicious processes like
"C:\Windows\Services.exe." You can also copy each process you aren't sure
about and google it (C:\Windows\Services.exe) and get more info on it.
