I have a new laptop with Windows Vista Ultimate installed. All the products on the laptop are by Microsoft except for the Firewall which is Outpost Security Pro 2009. In the past 2 days the computer has uploaded 30 MB. I have not send any emails or uploaded any files. I am monitoring the bytes uploaded via my ISP's website. I checked with Outpost's Network activity and saw that SVCHOST.EXE and MSNMSGR.EXE have uploaded most of the MBs. The laptop was not turned on for 3 weeks and I noticed that Liveupdate was active and I restarted the computer and the updates are installed.
Can someone please tell me what is going on? I cannot afford to have so much uploads since I only have 13.33 MB upload daily quota.
