    Well, It might be Windows auto updates... I am not sure
    If Auto updates of XP is not req then disable it( or set to 'notify me')

    @mav3 may b correct,, r u using any p2p s/ws like morpheus or warez they install addon plugin automatically and they result in unwanted traffic aslo some BHO(browser helper object) does the same. run a Hijackthis.exe on ur system and post a report it can help in finding out d prob. more efficintly...

    clear ur internet temp files folder. use 'ccleaner' to clear all junk if posbl. www.ccleaner.com
    install ewido ant-spyware also. and run it in SAFEMODE. www.ewido.net
    also run ur av in SAFE MODE.
    disable utomatic updates and also auto-update features of any of ur other sw (for the moment atleast)
    instal a good fw like za, and then try to identi5 which program is trying to connect/download. www.zonelabs.com

    if problem continues, post ur hijack this logfile here or at www.hijackthis.de for analysis.
