Amazon S3 Constant TCP polling

So, I am having a problem where as soon as my Mac boots, my buddies Windows machine gets massive network lag, as does mine.

I ran Wireshark to find the culprit, out of 2500ish captured packets, about 1700 of them were going to which is the Amazon S3 IP.

I have never used or installed a service to use this... any ideas what is causing it?

I am thinking it might be backup and clean install time...

EDIT: I am told it is Dropbox... thing is, it polls a different address even when I close Dropbox, still an amazon address...
