I don't even know if its possible to have a bandwidth leak so forgive the title. Anyway, Ever since I installed eDonkey2000 a few days ago my net speed has sunk. Even when I'm not downloading or uploading anything it slows down. Just a few minutes ago I ran a test on bandwidth.com and it read 500 and change when ed2k was online but over 1100 when it was off. I don't want to uninstalled ed2k cause you can find lots of stuff that just isn't available on KaZaA and (thanx to ShareReactor) you know its a real file and not some virus infested phony. I guess what I want to know is if its possible for ed2k to suck up that much bandwidth or do you think it something else? Any help would be much appreciated.
