No it doesnt sound at all normal, unless whatever is monitoring your bandwidth is also monitoring your LAN, and is showing bandwidth produced by transfers on that on there.

Either that or Background Intelligent Transfer could be being naughty, or you have a virus :|
 
any idea how to switch the background stuff off.

I have scanned my pc with like 5 anti viruses, no virus found

Actually, a way to do it would be.....

1. Load up windows task manager

2. Click 'view', and go to 'select columns'

3. tick I/O read bytes, I/O write bytes, and I/O other bytes, click ok.

This will show you which application(s) are writing to memory at that time, as the counter will be counting upwards.

Also handy when you have no idea why your hard drive is thrashing at times :)

Any help just ask! :)

do you have spybot and/or adaware ??
if not you may have spyware/trojan on your system.

get spybotS&D as well, it picks up things adaware misses (and vice-versa)also can autoblock porndialers etc.
What about kazaa, bit-torrent etc ???
Is it a steady 2kps or in spurts???
