I use 360 Total Security with the Glasswire Firewall. It used to be whenever I stopped doing activity on my PC (windows 7), the firewall graph would be flat-lined.

I use 360 Total Security with the Glasswire Firewall. It used to be whenever I stopped doing activity on my PC (windows 7), the firewall graph would be flat-lined. Now I notice it is spiking when I am not doing anything on the PC. I have tried running the virus check and used a malware program, but it hasn't found anything unusual. Should I be worried about this? — Thank you for the help.

Michael:
the glasswire graph is good, but it is missleading it shows all activity including that which the machine does in the background, for instance at any given time if its windows the machine is checking for updates, or patches which is right. and any commercial software like norton is doing the same, glasswire should allow you to click on a spike and it will tell you the process that is accessing the connection you can then just do a google. allot goes on when your not touching your machine…
Aerialnine:
Do you have any programs set to auto update….set to check for updates??…that'll cause a spike….
In the log…..( if it does have a log )……what does it say??…does it show that perhaps your ISP is pinging you??

Assume breach – always the safest thing to do.
