I noticed that after closing the window of Safari that it seems to be downloading. My network monitor is showing downloads of 250 to 400Kb/s. If I quit safari the network drops quickly to .2 to 0. When I launch it again.... it shoots back up to that range.

What's it doing? And how can I stop this from happening?

Never heard about that - my idea would be to delete safari and reinstall it - you find the newest version on the apple support site. hope that helps.

Well if you are using a late model machine OS X will not let you uninstall Safari.

Have you tried checking Activity Monitor to ascertain what is going on?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Do you have an extension installed that pre loads links in the background?
