  1. Constant network activity data being sent at 8-16 Kbps, what is it?!


    I don't know if this is normal behaviour. Normally from my observation it usually stays at 0 Kbps for both Send and Receive.

    Constant network activity data being sent at 8-16 Kbps, what is it?! [​IMG]

    Yet for some reason I'm seeing this strange behaviour, I believe ever since launching Calculator app, but maybe this has nothing to do with this. I uninstalled it for the benefit of the doubt.

    There are no Windows Store apps running in the background. Yet, I've suddenly started noticing the Ethernet in Task Manager sending every few seconds 8-16 Kbps of data.

    Yet, if I actually go to the Processes tab this will show 0% network activity and 0 Mbps for all of the background processes.

    Am I being paranoid or is this normal behaviour? If this is not, can someone explain what is behind this network activity of 8-16 Kbps worth of data being sent every few seconds???*Confused

    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
