Internet Connection is sending and receiving bytes constantly

I am not sure if my connection is supposed to send and receive bytes even when my browser is closed. Trillions of bytes with hours of duration. What is going on?

Your connection is supposed to send and receive bytes even when your browser is closed.
If it's lot's...Has your computer been on constantly sleeping and waking? Without being shutdown?
If so this is common.

1. Shut down. Unplug main PC power cord. Press start button a few times to drain energy out/clean boot this way.
Disconnect modem cables and reattach.
This will reset your cable modem.
2. Reboot.
3. Recheck send/receive. It should be reset.
4. Download and run: https://www.malwarebytes.org/

5. You can also download Sysinternals/Autoruns for Windows v13.0
and investigate whats running:

You are very welcome. I'm glad to see the culprit of malware was found and extinguished.

Use Malwarebytes like once a week.
Run Malwarebytes and click update right when it opens every time.
Click Scan at the very top by the Dasboard Tab.
Click Custom Scan.
Then Check the box: scan for rootkits. It's unchecked by default.
On the Right Side Check C Drive and any others you'd like to scan also.
Click Start Scan bottom right.

Btw lots are suppose to be running under the Everything Tab in Sysinternals/Autoruns.
In your reply to this, you can save the results of the Autoruns Program and click on
Attach File here at the top - so I can review it for you if like.

Cheers
