    A program may be running in the background and is accessing the internet. Possibly a trojan?
    Hit control+alt+del and see what programs are running. Although, this may not show any trojan programs running.
    Firewalls are great for things like this. I'm running ZoneAlarm Pro(got the keygen off Kazaa, nudge nudge, wink wink). It tells you what & when any program is accessing the internet, and, lets you allow it or not.
    ZoneAlarm is available here. The shareware version is on the lower right side of page.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh, and Quake3 itself may be accessing the internet as well.
