I have a Dell Dimension 3000 and Sprint DSL. I had trouble connecting to the internet and the Sprint tech fixed that but said that I probably have a virus because my computer is sending massive amounts of packets. When I click on the two little computer screens in the bottom right ccorner it shows that it has sent 3.7 million and received 5.2 million packets since yesterday(about 20 hours). I spoke to Dell support and they told me that it was not a problem. Can someone tell me if this is a problem? PS. prior to this I had trouble with slow launching of programs and I reconfigured my computer back to day one. This took care of my "slow" problem.
