Computer keeps downloading data

Specs: Windows XP
Hi there, I got a question, my computer keeps on downloading data even though i have no apps open in the meantime. This really bothers me although I have unlimited internet connection. It keeps on downloading until I turn off my connection, and if I connect again, the same thing happens again, can i get any help?

Thanks a lot!

I guess, your computer is infected by a virus or trojan.
Are you sure, it's downloading, or is it uploading some things.
What makes you think, that you're downloading?

Maybe you'll find out, what program makes a connection to the internet by opening a command prompt (cmd) and start a:
netstat -anb

Take a look at the tcp connections, that are established.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!
