URGENT: Large packets of data being sent

Post by amit » Fri, 05 Sep 2003 11:20:44


I am experiencing a major problem. My computer is sending
large amounts of packets when connected to the highspeed
internet connection through lan. I have checked for all
viruses and spyware but nothing seems to stop it. The
packets just keep on multiplying and reaching millions,
billions and even trillions in no time. I have updated
all patches, installed a firewall as well, but cannot
determine what is happening. Someone please help.
 
 
 

URGENT: Large packets of data being sent

I would recommend using something like ZoneAlarm to find out where the data
is going. At least you'll have an ip to work with.

I once had a trojan attached to a run.dll file. Had to replace the file to
stop it. Come to find out it wasn't a trojan, it was a backdoor. Stealing
the contents of my hd.
