When I'm doing anything bandwidth is being used. I think Windows 8 is using the bandwidth (constant download and upload). When I disconnect the Internet and again connect to the internet, the bandwidth consumption resumes.

Is there any way I could stop the usage? How do I see what is constantly using this bandwidth?
