I would check MSConfig to see what you have running on start up, and also check task manager to see what is using your CPUs.  I see you have Norton Internet Security installed.  My money is that is why you have issues, Norton is notorious for calling home....alot.  

 

Hope that helps.

VPN:

Sent: 5 million

Received: 350k

 

So, what is VPN used for?

 

You are uploading more than 10 times what you are downloading which is not part of any background network protocol handshake.

 

Ideas:

 

- you are sharing a hard drive to other computers on the private network and they are using the information as intended

 

- you are running a Torrent program and have left all your downloads sitting in the torrent directory to be forever continously shared with the world

 

- you have a trojan or virus that is sending information somewhere

 

- you are accessing your home computer when you are away and have fogotten you do this

 

- you have given similar access to friends or family and forgot about it

 

out of ideas - something has to be at the other end of the pipe and receiving that data so if nothing comes to mind, fire up a network monitor and just find out...

Without some context there is nothing wrong with what you posted.
