When I'm online and no application is opened, data transfer still takes place with data bytes being sent and received. I have recently cleaned up some worms (backdoor.irc.bot and w32.sdbot) and am sure they are all cleaned out (tried various reliable antiviruses and worm removal tools and online scans). This is slowing down my dial-up internet connection. I have also run adware tools like lavasoft and they report a clean computer. Please help.

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
