Svchost.exe downloading stuff?

vbimport

#1

Hello,
i just saw something I couldn’t quite understand. Looking at the internet activity bar of Bitdefender, I saw that there was heavy activity. About a hundred MB was downloaded in a few minutes by what is described as svchost.exe-knetsvcs. This happened when I was not even using the net. The net was connected, but I was not using it. This happened again one or two days later. What exactly has happened? What is eating away my bandwidth without my permission? Any ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Read this and maybe even run the security task manager it refers to http://www.file.net/process/svchost.exe%20-k%20netsvcs.html
