    Anyone here use easynews? If you do you know that you are able to select all the files you want to download and zip them into one file and download JUST the one file. Anyway-my question- is it possible for your isp to know what your downloading, or do they just see the name of the zip file you're getting, which is usually something like 1-akejdk.zip (meaningless).

    Don't worry about it.

    I suppose it is technically possible for your ISP to monitor all your data transfer and reconstruct every file you download. But that is very very unlikely.
