High ping times, but instant return?!?

Ok, I just have a little strangeness going on on my PC... When I try to ping anything on my network or on the internet, I get an almost instant return of all 4 replies... however, the times are in the 5000ms range... a ping time that high should take a few seconds at least to return on each one... and it will probably drop the packet anyway.... however, it is returning and my internet is working fine... I think this is a glitch somewhere... anyone else seen anything like this?

A bad switch or hub can cause this.   Also  Bittorrent or other simular filesharing applications can cause this type of latency when not configured correctly.

Well, at first I would think this too.... However, the ping times are not correct... the pings are actually coming back very fast, but they are reporting as being very slow... I don't know if it is doing it on all PC's on the LAN, but I will certainly check.... I have turned off uTorrent, but it doesn't change anything...

Check... it does NOT do the crazy ping symptoms on a different machine on the network... As for the PC with the bad experience, it has AVG antivirus and that is all... no firewalls or antispyware agents are installed... any ideas?

It turns out it was BitTorrent, but I'm not sure exactly why it does that... when I turn it off, my ping time return to normal...
