the last few days, my network speed monitor has been telling me I am downloading between 5 and 50 kb/s (usually 5-12, although it spikes) when everything I can think of that connects to the internet is shut down. I have seen uploads at the same time running up to 5kb/s although it is usually 0kb/s I downloaded a couple internet monitors to try and figure out the problem, and while they were downloading, the firefox download window was reading aprox. 200 kb/s, while the monitor was reading 360kb/s, so it seems that when I am active on the connection, the total unidentifyed use goes up (it doesn't just go to 207 when my download is at 200). any idea what is going on? I need to reload windows anyways, but I want to figure out what the problem is in case I see it again. i looked through my process list, and killed every thing that looked suspicious, and still made no inpact on download speed.
