Hi guys thanks for all the above advice i have found the problem.
I use a progrm called Mozy backup to backup small files but importent ones and for some reason all my hard drive had been selected and the backup was talking hours. now i have stopped that running all is back to normal.
Also the Malwarebyte showed no problems

Thanks guys

That sounds like good news........but, what does your internet usage have to do with the backup? Is the backup to a cloud (internet) site? If so, its all good.

Keep that Malwarebyte program handy, its good practice to run a scan every once in a while, and gives you peace of mind

you may want to look into a new ISP if any are available in your area. Hell, I use about 8gig of 3g bandwidth on my iphone alone.

Mozy backup stores its backups on their servers "off site". It is a good cheap alternative to offsite storage.

Hi Lunarpancake

Yes Mozy is good and cheap for off site storage upto 2Gb its free.

As for my IPS i am looking to change but i dont have a lot of choice where i live as my local exchange is quite old and i like in a small town so not much chance of a better service.

When i signed up the internet service about 2 years ago it was unlimited then i get a email the other day saying there is a fair usage cap at 40Gb and i had gone over and i had to reduce my usage.

Thats why i am running Net Meter

Regard to you all
