Free usage starting time + Usage errors

I started downloading 9gb of data at 12 last night, and i downloaded another file this morning at about 7, and according to the usage page i;ve used 1.50+ gb today, the dwonload finished before 8am, and no-one has been here to use the internet. Also, the usage page says web accounts for 80% of the usage, and no-ones even browsed the web for much this month. I also have security and  a firewall set up.

Is the 1.5GB showing in your paid for usage or just in your free and total usage?

Re: Free usage starting time + Usage errors

Remember that uploads also count against your allowance.  If, for example, you were using peer-to-peer software then it may well be continuing to upload after your downloads have finished.
