    I'm using NOD32 V3 and Comodo Firewall Pro V3. And according to the "Active Connections" list in comodo, it seems like NOD32 is constantly downloading something. The source IP shows my router IP, but the destiantion IP is 64.72.115.9:80, and at the moment my computer have been on for maybe 10 minutes, and bytes in is 53 MB and rising, while bytes out is 1.196 MB.

    Is this normal? and if it isn't does anyone know why it is happening?

    Not that this gets any closer to the answer but is your Internet Service Provider Alpha Red ?

    Source IP your router , destination an IP in Texas USA ?

    You still mean download ?

    If COMODO is showing ekrn.exe is downloading , it is because v3.0 acts like a local proxy to filder HTTP/POP3 traffic . There is an application establishing such connections and that is why you see ekrn.exe downloading (port 80 is for HTTP showing in your post)

    I would create a rule to stop any traffic from and to 64.72.115.9 and then investigate

    It must be another application whose http traffic is routed via ekrn.

    I believe you're right. I was downloading something with Opera, and the instant that download was finished, NOD32 stopped downloading as well.

    Thanks for the help.
