Just been on the phone with Sky tech support, a call back!!
One of things he mentioned is that in the last 5 days i have uploaded over 725mb of stuff!
I don't use any... well i don't even know what they're called lol, to share software music etc.
All i've done in the last few days is play BF 2142 demo for a bit, a little on other internet games but no uploads other than that!
All the guy could think of doing was to run anti virus/spyware test and change my wireless security ID + key.
All tests on my pc's are coming up empty, with AVG, Spybot + Ad-Aware, so far that is.
Any ideas any one?
Does BF 2142 send up massive amounts of data?
Any one know of a free, easy to use bandwidth monitor i could try?

Any game will upload data to the server but i wouldnt of thought it to be that high.
why cant sky offer some form of tool so we can keep an eye on what were actually using im finding it quite hard to keep a track on my usage not that i expect to really use anymore than a few gbs of bandwith all i do is check my email and pay my bills online so nothing really major.
Does anyone else know how we can keep a track on our bandwith usage.
As for your problem what programs do you use to keep your pc safe?

No, installed nothing like that.
I doubt very much that i've been hacked too, as i know all my neighbours arround me and over the road. I'll change everything anyway, incase these things have a long range for hackers to reach in from.
Just running F-Secure on line scanner on both my machines at the moment, nothing as yet.
Sure takes a while...

speed testing will show on your uploads as it uploads data
i have a prog running that shows how much you are uploading downloading
its called du meter there is a pay one with a trial and a fee one.
ill try and find a link for you if no one else beats me to it

Firstly Speedtest wont be an issue as the max file sizes they have are around 10Mb?
If they think 750Mb is bad they should check my 8gb of Prison Break?
Also It could be a trojan! Or more likely Sky Broadbands Tech Support being Funny lol!

There's a thing called Ethereal that will show you where all traffic is coming from and going to. Gets a bit complicated though.
If you can see your router it may be worth keeping an eye open for flashing lights that shouldn't be.
