how can you be sure that spyware is not the problem?. if you are positive it isnt spyware check that it isnt any other form of virus/adaware.

if your connection is always active, but you're not always using the machine...then it would make sense that your sent packets are always more than recieved...(as long as it's not some ungodly number) because this is probably due to the fact that you computer is acknowledging the connection to your isp....the machine doesn't just call the number and forget about it...there is constant interaction on the line....most of the time...your computer will talk to the isp more often than the isp responds...hence the larger number....but this is all dependant on whether or not you are truly clean or not
