The data activity light of your modem / router maybe constantly flashing and you may be wondering why it is doing so, though you don’t have your browsers opened. The thing is not only your browser, but many programs access the internet. For example, Windows maybe updating or any one of the gadgets in Google Desktop maybe downloading data or a torrent may be seeding.
But if they are running in the background, it is difficult for you to find it. So here comes a nifty program to solve this issue of yours. TCPEye is a network monitoring tool, which will monitor all the programs trying to access the internet and will show you the list of those programs.
TCPEye is network monitoring software that displays the list of all currently opened TCP/IP and UDP ports on your local computer. For each port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is also displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description, and so on), the time that the process was created, and the user that created it. In addition, TCPEye allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports, and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file , XML file, or to tab-delimited text file. TCPEye also automatically mark with pink color suspicious TCP/UDP ports owned by unidentified applications (applications without version information and icons).
This will be very helpful for you to identify viruses and strange malicious softwares running in your system and will help you to eliminate them. Do install this software if you are wondering why your monthly internet bills soar though you don’t use the internet often.
