That seems a bit much for something as simple as looking at the resource monitor that is built in already.

Or just this standalone exe you could run to give you the same sort of info

The only thing xp can do is tell you what is currently (at the time of running the command) is running. It doesn't tell you what is taking up bandwidth. You could research what it is connecting to and guess what process is doing it but in order to be sure you need a third party app.

While I can understand that you don't want to load up one program to give you that information, I would say that if the bandwidth issue concerns you that much it would be worth installing the application from Nirsoft that Budman suggested.

I'm not entirely sure why one or two programs doing an automatic update would be causing you severe issues though. Actually you didn't specifically say that it was causing you issues, just that you wanted to know what was taking up the bandwidth. I would say that installing a small application to take a look at the problem wouldn't be the worst thing in the world in order to satisfy your curiosity. ;)

Do you have Steam or Origin? Sometimes they can auto update games without your knowledge.

At least I found that out when I was lagging on my Xbox while my PC was sleeping.

There is no installing of the nirsoft tool - its standalone! Just run it. But you do have to have a driver that can allow it to sniff installed, be it winpcap or the MS one, etc. etc..
