Crazy wolf" in this. I talked to a tech about it ( from my provider) and he tried to tell me the packet sent/received was not actual packet
transmission or reception but rather an illustration that the pc could transfer data at those rates if it wanted too. ARE YOU KIDING ME? There is
obviously more to this than what meets the eye. People start keeping track of your stats. ( My opinion ) I may just re-install to factory defaults ..
that tech is a moron, the network adapter stats DO show actual transferred packets. By the way, i didnt use XP in ages (i strongly advice you also to
switch to W7)...but i just checked my XP machine which i use as "media PC"....while watching a movie...and the packets shown should actually update in
real time if you look at the adapter stats. The media PC actually has about as much packets sent as received...but then it is streaming a movie...
By the way..before doing a complete new-install...care to send the "hijackthis" log?
Go here: www.filehippo.com...
Let it scan and post or send that log file. It SHOULD show any suspicious things..i can also run it through an analyzer.
