I have Sygate firewall and this application (from windows xp) is always
downloading from the internet. From several ip adresses and from diferent
ports. If i block it in the firewall, it still keeps downloading but the
traffic shows under incoming blocked. Outgoing traffic is zero. I did a few
searches on the web and i still don't understand exactly what this "NDIS
user mode I/O" is for. It's under this path C:\WINDOWS\System32\DRIVERS
\
disuio.sys

The description of this thing: "Internal Windows driver; performs internal
communications tasks within Windows". Well that doesn't help much. The
thing is my ISP has a monthly download cap, and this thing is downloading
slowly but surely a few megabytes every day. Please, give me some hints how
to resolve this problem. TIA.
