|When I used Windows 95, 98, and even XP, I had network traffic -WHEN I WAS DOING SOMETHING!|
I just bought a new Windows 7 notebook, and updated everything Microsoft wanted me to. I went through the authentication process, and Windows Update says they have no more for me at this time. Browser windows are closed, and minimal programs are installed at this point because I used "PC Decrapifier" to unload all of the worthless junk that manufacturers install on new PCs. So... why is there non-stop traffic over the wireless lan? The thing transmits CONSTANTLY. I really can not stand it, and if I can't get it slowed down to something reasonable, I will dump Windows 7, the latest and reputedly the greatest Microsoft OpSystem. After all of this time, isn't there a utility that plainly and simply says, "The PC is connected to these servers, doing this, click to see the actual data exchange, (or something similar).
Yes, I am paranoid, the list of snoopers is endless, and what do I have to hide? I want to hide everything - period!
