    Hi,
    I just checked the Network Traffic tab and noticed that my internet activity was 562 MB (409 mb incoming traffic and 153 mb outgoing traffic) last week .What confuses me is that KIS2009 only has a total share of 236 MB (208 in and 26 out).Does that mean there's a leakage in firewall?!I'm not unfamiliar with pc security but never seen sth like this before and it really makes me nervous.BTW I had Zone alarm Force Field installed in that period of time (and I uninstalled it today Bcuz I thought maybe it's causing the problem but today's activity is like last week's.Should I be worried?

    Not likely,
    You must be knowing starting from v2009, Kaspersky has started KSN kaspersky security nework(Kaspersky's version of in the cloud implementation) so one of the reason is sending details about different files you access and use in realtime.

    Its perfectly normal, I was thinking Kaspersky double-counts some data (possibly if it is included in Kaspersky's network data scaning).
    Not 100% sure though, but KSN will definatly not use that much bandwidth.

    probably it included also its localhost internetwork activities and its web kaspersky proxy scan on your local machine when you enabled web scan of kaspersky.
    You should be better switch to the lastest ver 9, kav/kis2010
