  • weird network usage

    i was logged into my router and noticed that my laptop was utilizing all bandwidth possible, with nothing that i know of running on it updating or downloading/uploading... so in investigated

    resource monitor says that svchost.exe (netsvcs) with a pid of 4840 is talking to google shows no relavant results for so i am wondering why a windows process is talking that much to an unknown website.... should i be worried?

    I'd disable your wireless adapter on your lappy and run a complete virus and spyware scan. Sounds like a bug got in and is either trying to get some data from your PC or using your connection for some other purpose.

      Set Resource Monitor to report IP addresses, not domain names, and let us know what address it's connecting to. I suspect the reverse domain entry points at a stale domain. looks like a dead domain that's now being squatted by some registrar:
