Windows 7: Question about networking

Question about networking

When I leave the Windows' task manager running and showing the Networking tab, every so often, maybe a minute or two, there will be a little spike. Is this normal? Does Windows networking check for a connection very so often? Or is someone trying to access my computer?


Thanks in advance.
