    What Windows version are you using?

    Bytes sent and recieved will generally keep rising unless you physically unplug from the internet as communication from you to your ISP, as well s when you are using Chrome, your connected to a webpage and depending on its content it could be loading/rotation adverts as well as sending packets of data to say "are you still here", also you could be downloading Windows or Antivirus updates in the background.

    Do you use P2P?

    What Security software do you have installed?

    Do you use a router and wifi?

    Us something like this http://majorgeeks.com/Simple_Internet_Meter_Lite_d6275.html to see what applications could be using your internet connection.
