    The problem is that when I am idle at the desktop and doing NO Internet activity AND the Internet Gateway icon (Control Panel, Network Connections) status is "connected", there is a lot of bytes sent to and from the Internet. It measures 16Mbytes of downloads per hour! Why/what is this Internet activity. It is worth noting that the count of bytes sent is approx 90% of the bytes received. I run WinXP Home, NOD32 V2, with Broadband modem/router. This problem occurred before and after XP SP2. I have Automatic Updates turned OFF. There are no viruses on the system and a run of Adaware and Spybot brought up no spyware on the system.
    I have done some testing to reveal that I beleive it is the nod32krn program that is causing the problems. Whenever I remove nod32krn from the running Processes list, the download count slows right down to a crawl. Has anyone experienced this problem or have a solution? My work around at this moment is to disconnect the Internet Gateway when I am not using the Net.

    Hi,
    please send a log from Hijackthis (can be found on the Internet) to support@nod32.com along with a description of the issue. Anyway, the NOD32krn service cannot be stopped at all.

    try starting in safe mode with network support. see if the problem still occurs.

    Try downloading a trial version of a packet tracer, see what those packets are doing? If your gateway is Redhat based i can help you there aswell. there is a command you can put that can monitor traffic.
