I had Kazza and got tons of popups so I reinstalled XP (cause KAZZA wouldn't go away). Now I can connect to the internet fine and everything appears ok, but after maybe five minute connected the modem starts sending and recieving data that I have no controll over. I talked to my IPNS and they said there's no problems with the line at all. If you have any ideas at all or know of any software that would be usefull... PLEASE!

One way to find out would be to download and install the free version of the ZoneAlarm firewall software from http://www.ZoneLabs.com. Running ZA would force programs to "ask permission" before going online, and you could find the culprit. The Task Manager can also help, by seeing what's running in the TaskList.

You also need to make sure that you have all your XP patches up-to-date and that you have UPnP and the Messenger service turned off. See http://www.GRC.com for more on these.
