Wireless network (Networx) uses 85 KB continuously while no network(!)

I use the portable app networx for a long time now, especially to monitor my wireless network traffic on a Windows 7 workstation 64 BIT (no extra soft installed beside OpenOffice).
Automatic updates disabled, I seen a continuous down-stream of 85 KB(!), even when I disable my wireless, it’s still there. So now I wonder where this is coming from.

Please advise.

I am suspecting some windows services is running constantly even if it can be windows firewall etc. will be good to drill further if it is an service. See below to drill down using taskmgr or process explorer...

Also if you have antivirus running could be updating
try the netstat cmd
go to start orb then run type cmd press enter
then in the cmd box type in netstat press enter
To show you here's a screenshot of the netstat, I have this EE page open and others so mine shows what is connected

Thanks, but isn't there a tool that shows exactly which process is using what amount of network traffic?

Thanks, but Network Monitor is a packet sniffer, the other tool likes one too.
I'd need a tool which shows per process the network usage, something like dumeter, but that product isn't supported anymore.

Understand process explorer would have some io stats but not directly explicit. Maybe netbalancer. Pls see

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.
