Hi, That's really new, I wonder how it can get past my firewall and anti-virus program. You mentioned the operating system as Win 2008, a relatively ancient system, could be one reason for the easy invasion. I have a 64-bit Win 7 OS and I may rest assured it can't touch me here.

You're such a confident guy, huh?. You don't even know how someone might try to get into your 'secured' computer but you're confident that nobody can't get to you? It's like you have locked door and sure you're safe but don't know if there is an open window on the back. "False sense of security is worse than being unsure" (Anonymous)

Use tools from SysInternal Suite to find the source of your bandwidth problem, then locate-kill-delete-clean it. There are plenty of tools out there to deal with this kind of situation...
