Local Area Connection shows 1,885,490,649,668 packets sent vs, 9,037 received

My internet connection (LAN) has seemed slow for a couple of weeks but when accessing the internet via wireless the speed increased.

I checked the Local Area Connection Status and found that a very high number of packets are being continuously sent while the receive count is low and seems correct (compared to the Wireless Connection Status window).

I have rebooted the system and the problem continues.
In about an hour, packets sent wherea at 1 trillion vs 9K received. Can anyone tell me what is going on?
I am converned.

It would also be helpful to post a Hijackthis scan log. This will show us what is going on with your pc:

http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/hijackthis/download

Download the installer package. Run it and click on "Do a system scan and save a logfile."  Post the scan log here via the "attach code snippet" box below.

I'd say you probably have a malware infection on your computer, and those are bots communicating out. I'd go through a full AV scan, and malware scans using some reccommended programs. Here's a VERY thorough walkthrough:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic1628.html

If you ran Spybot and Malwarebytes, as well as your AV, you should get everything. If your scans show infection, I'd keep going and get more programs to scan the computer.

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

There is some registry clutter:

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {ACB1E670-3217-45C4-A021-6B829A8A27CB} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)

And some adware:

O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://kl.bar.need2find.com/KL/menusearch.html?p=KL

Did you install this?:

C:\Program Files\Huey\HueyController.exe

There are several entries for this, and it appears to be adware too:

http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?Adware.Win32.Huey+PC+Remote+Control

Run HJT again and place a tick in the checkbox next to each of these, plus the Huey stuff if you did not install it.
Then I would run Malwarebytes' Antimalware:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Make sure it is fully updated, then run it and "remove selected". Please post the log here.

Initially, malware may certainly have caused the Local Network Connection Status sent - rec'd problem. But removing adware and malware did not fix the issue. Downloading and installing the latest driver from IBM has fixed the problem.

Thank you for your help. In the end in may in fact be malware that caused the problem initially.
