Windows 7: Where is my bandwidth going?

Where is my bandwidth going?

Hey guys this is my first post here and havent had any luck searching here or on google to help me with this.

I have something taking huge amounts of bandwidth. Both in upload and download. I have ran 2 seperate anti virus checkers with no luck of finding anything. I do not see anything that would make me think its a virus. I tried displaying all files and extensions to see if anything weird would pop up. To make sure I wasnt just thinking I was loosing bandwidth I put a tracker to see how much was going out and in during a certain period. In 12 hours with nothing running and the computer Idle I dled close to 4gb and uploaded 1.2gb. I as well have turned off auto updates to every program I could.

I am on sattelite internet so this is a huge issue for me. If I go over my daily limit during charged hours i get FAP'd and have slower than dl speeds. I tested last night during my free hours so I wouldnt have that happen.

Any and all suggestions are welcomed! Feel free to ask any specific info you need I will gladly post it.

From a command prompt, run this command:

netstat -abo

Wireshark is also an excellent way to see everything your nic is communicating with and how.
