Sorry for double post, ran out of characters. My home network configuration is fairly simple, It's just my computer connected to a wall outlet via an ethernet cable. No router or switches.

comment Unidentified public network sending traffic through my computer
What i used to identify the amount of data was windows standard network information window, looking at the sent and received numbers. Regarding unidentified network windows simply said there were 2 networks connected to my computer, the ordinary one, my home network, and an unidentified public network connected via internet. The unidentified network popped up at system start, and would shut down if I pulled the ethernet cable out, when i plugged it back in again, it was gone. Looking at the connections using netstat showed that the computer was still connected to someone though.

No, my IP is a dynamic one and that confuses me even more since I don't know how this other computer manages to locate mine all the time. When I saw the contents of the packages my first thoughts were that my computer was being used as a web server of some kind though, so it's possible.

FeralOink: Normally I would do that, but the IP changes, so blocking it would not be useful in my case :/ @HenningKlevjer: Yes, I captured roughly 30 mins of traffic yesterday. From the connected IP I recieved a lot of TCP packages and some HTTP packages containing what I believe is a mix of HTML and JavaScript-code. My computer sent packages back to the connected IP containing text like: 404 not found, Resource could not be located, etc.

Roger that, I'll leave wireshark on for half an hour! @Cooky451: When I reinstalled I formatted the drives by hooking them up to a computer running ubuntu 12.04, I wiped those drive as clean as I knew how to make em. I also had a Ubuntu installed on the effected computer via dual booting with GRUB, the network existed when running ubuntu as well.
