    Exclamation Gigabit Network Spikes

    I seem to be getting Spikes in task manager networking tab every 30 seconds or so ranging from 0.5% to 5% network usage... and with gigabit thats a lot of usage any suggestions on what may be going on here?

    Thinking it may be a virus but I have run Avg many times and have come up with nothing also used Ad-aware SE also no results...

    Have a look at the processes that are running...when i had unusual network activity it turned out to be data mining stuff that had worked its way on to my pc (Ad-aware quickly took care of that)

    Like I said Ad-aware didn't pick up anything nor did AVG... and I have been skrewing around with the services every day so I know whats going on there. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    You're sure its not a program or service...what about using Spybot S&D, and SpywareBlaster? Unless its something related to your service provider or connection in particular. I'm guessing you've already set up the services and settings as per the XP tweak guides here and Blackviper's services guide. I cant really think of what else it could be...I have a 20mbps connection myself, and when its idle, its idle, theres never any spikes when I have no internet stuff running

    A clean install of WinXP is a bit drastic and should be a last resort, but im running out of ideas...Your gigabit nic links directly to the internet connection i take it? See, im behind a router (not under my control), that does stop some crap gettin in...Thing is, with gigabit speeds, there is a lot more connection overhead, it might be routine protocol activity for all i know...How long has it been goin on for? Also, get Sisoft Sandra and try testing the LAN bandwidth a few times

    Edit: Off topic here, but the radeon 9550 (250\400, 128bit, 4x1) is a good entry-level video card, I hear that its just an underclocked 9600 chip so if you add a fan to the heatsink you can get 400mhz+ on the core

    Well a cleen install of Windows is out of the question... I am using about 90 GB of space on this hard drive. I am conecteted to a gigabit switch which is also running to my fathers computer, athough he only has a 10/100 conection on his motherboard it is still faster than cable. It could be just the isp refreshing but i'll do some looking around and see what I can find.

    On the video card isue I plan on getting a 6600 for this computer and two 6800 when I buy a NForce4 motherboard with SLI. I prefer not to overclock my video cards just so you know.... I don't mind spending the extra money on a stock card.

    Go over to Tom's Hardware and have a look at their SLI review, it may change your mind about that...then again if you have that kind of money to spend theres nothing stopping you, the boards will be available pretty soon if theyre not already. Aside from the SLI, i cant see myself making use of 10 usb ports or 8 serial ATA 2.0 ports any time soon....

    Too far ahead, i only use 1 hard disk and a DVD burner, and im only just looking at regular serial ATA now lol...the dual gigabit LAN would be a feature thats useful now though, hardware firewall as usual, and nvidia's own management software including overclocking settings. But im already pushing my budget as it is, and I need to sell this machine to help pay for the new one... the nforce 4 mobo (150) is 66% more expensive than the nforce 3 (90)
