PC sending out huge amounts of data: help

Post by johncoll » Wed, 05 Jan 2005 02:36:45



Hi,
My computer (W98) when on line is sending out huge amounts of data of some
type. It sends out 10-20x of 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

The simplest step is to <control><Alt><delete> (select the task manager
if this is an option) and go to the processes tab. You should see a
process that is using a high percentage of system resources. Based on
its name try and identify the source of the problem
