    If your system wasn't on, it couldn't have been "hacked". Do you have a wireless network?

      Are you using Windows XP and have updates set to download and install automatically?

      Do you go to Youtube or other video website and watch movies?

        Hi there.
        1. Probably someone stole your ISP requisites, i.e. username+password for PPPoE connection?
        2. Once, there is a lot internet traffic over a month limit (60 GB instead of 20 GB) and all "big company" managers were in shock and though that all network resources were hacked from internet ))) After a long investigation we found that one of their employer logged on to online game server, and therefore have a lot of that traffic.

          No more comments until the OP posts back as we are all now just guessing. I am thinking the 2nd post hit the nail on the head.
          1 1 was a racehorse.
          2 2 was 1 2.
          1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
          2 2 1 1 2
