Hi,

I noticed the other day at a clients that the little network icon in the bottom right of the taskbar was always lit. Upon inspecition it showed constant traffic in and out.

A person on EE suggested that I use traffic shaper XP to see the details. So I installed it and it does show unusual traffic. Please see the screenshot below. The traffic is always 300+ K and goes constantly to the file/print server. Offline files on the desktop is not configured, and a virus scan and anti-malware scan shows clean. The user has noticed some performance slow downs.

Any help on what is it, or how to stop it would be greatly appreciated.
