Re: data drain....cannot find the cause

ok here ya go.  Firefox is the high user because I have been researching routers and firmware ALL DAY.  LOL  Also do not know what is going on with dropbox.  It is not supposed to be loaded.  I have friend that sends me pedigree files.  guess she has been busy.

Birddog I don't know why dropbox is syncing.  It is not supposed to be running.

Oh man, not up for it anymore tonight either. Thanks for the props though Gwalk.

Yorkytime, look in your Startup folder for things there. Don't remember how Dropbox works anymore, been awhile since I used it. May be a setting in the interface or online account to stop syncing.

ok I use Glary Utilities.  It had two entries for Dropbox.  One was enabled on startup and the other delayed.  I disabled the first one.  But the second entry was corrupt or something.  I was able to delete the second entry.  So maybe that was the problem.

Yorky,
In your last screenshot, in the left windowpane firefox is selected (its highlighted ingreen),

Just under that is Host processes ..... in the left pane, click on THAT if you can and post another pic. I. Would like to see what Windows is doing that is taking half your recorded usage.
