See what your computer is connected to
If you think that there might be something strange going on with your PC you should check what it is connected to. There may be a chance that you have some programs that are using your internet connection in the background without your knowledge.
To see what is going on you can use the netstat command from a command prompt window:
netstat -abf 5 > whatsgoingon.txt
Wait about two minutes and then press Ctrl + C to stop the recording of data.
If you see processes or websites that you do not know check them out in Google. If you think what you have found might be a bad program, get rid of it!
