If not update activity, what is it?

    I'm new to Win 7 (2 weeks). Initially there were dozens of updates to
    the OS and to MS applications that were installed on the PC. It stopped
    after a few days.

    In the past 2 days I've noticed a lot of downloading from 65.54.81.xxx.
    This AM, over 170 MB of data was downloaded from 1 IP address. This
    site closed, and another 65.54.81.xxx site started downloading many MB
    of data.

    I don't have any MS application open, only the OS. No updates are
    showing up waiting to be installed. IF I interrogate windows update, no
    updates are found that need to be downloaded.

    Scanning with avira antivirus, malware bytes and super anti spyware show
    a clean PC.

    This is really hitting my bandwidth hard.
    Any ideas?

    Automatic updates are and have been enabled all along. When I noticed
    all the activity I ran a manual "get updates" to see what might be
    coming at me. The result: I am up to date and no updates are available
    for download. My update history log shows no updates installed for the
    past 3-4 days.

    I saw which IP was causing all the activity when I went to my firewall's
    active connection monitor and did a whois search on the IP; it came up
    with MS in Richmond WA.

    What logs can I check to see what is downloading in real time (or what
    was downloaded that apparently is not an update?)
