Specs: Windows XP

Hello,

I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise, I recently noticed that "svchost.exe" using my internet bandwidth when i connected to the internet,(i had no problem before) its not because of "windows update" because i disabled it completely . (or any other program updates - i disabled all other programs automatic updates) and I don't know which software is updating or something. it keeps connecting to random ip.

I terminate the connection IP using comodo but few minutes later it keep connect to another or similar IP addresses. I tack some ip and its belongs to microsoft. Help me to finf which software uses the internet.

Since I have limited bandwidth per month i can not allow it to download. Please help, I did not find anything useful on the internet regarding my problem.

I also check for viruses using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, microsoft essential security and kaspersky, nothing found.

please somebody help me to fix this problem. Much appreciated.

Install Process Explorer from Microsoft. I will give you more details about the processes that are running on your system. When you hover your pointer over any of the various svhost.exe that you will find, it will give you a list of the process or group of processes that are active. If you do this over the one with CPU activity you will be able to see what is probably causing it. Google for details about the process to see if it legit or fake and if it is a critical or necessary process. Use msconfig or services to disable at start up (which may be enough) or disable completely.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

its not actually svhost but the process's encapculated within svhost, many of which are correct and neccesary, check with link already provided, and hopefully you will find nothing out of order.

Thanks for response,

Yes, I know that svchost.exe is a normal process in Windows but I wonder which software uses it to download from internet , and I want to block (or delete) that software to prevent from downloading.

I disabled all programs auto updates (antivirus, Windows update, Adobe update and ....) but still wonder which software uses Internet.
