TB Meter showing constant download


[link to this post]
 
Hi there, Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, however, I will go ahead. I have been using TB Meter for a long time on various computers. This last few days it has been showing a constant download of approx 0.5m.

What I would like to know is how do I find out which site this is from please. I am fairly techy but cannot seem to find out how to see where this constant connection is coming from and I find it a bit worrying.

Thanks for any replies.

Go into TBB meter, then under Menu, select Test Tools.

From the list, select, "Record TCP data log for 30 seconds" that will record which application is using the data - it is stored in a CSV file on your hard disc.

HI there, thanks for the reply. That report shows only one ip address in the listing which is 63.245.193.66 which when I checked appears to be unknown. The Thinkbroadband CSV report also says it is unknown.

Should I be doing something about this. I am not happy that there is constant downloading going on although I suppose I should be more worried if it was uploading.

Can anyone give me any reassurance on all this please.

Thanks

Thanks but, I too looked up the address but it gives no indication of who or what might be downloading to my pc for what reason either.

The only thing which has changed recently is related to Big Fish Games who appear to be in Seatle, Vancouver and Ireland.


I am at a loss as to what is going on and whether I should be worrying about it.

As I said before any reassurance or help would be appreciated.

You could try scanning your PC with Stinger as a quick check to see if it's infected http://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/free-tools/how-to...

Thanks, I will give that a go but I have McAfee Antivirus running and it does a scan every night overnight and has not come up with anything but I will run Stinger and see if it gives me any feedback.
