If you have Windows it will try to update automatically periodically and these are often enormous downloads. To prevent this go to Settings, Control Panel, System, Automatic Updates (turn off).

Windows does not download 9 GB worth of info with all their updates. They max out at less then 1GB. Have you been downloading using Bittorrent or other programs, these use up a lot of bandwidth.

If the company tells you use used 9gig, have them show you the logs with the details. Otherwise fight them for proof and contest the bill. Take them to court for the details if you have to. I'm sure there are plenty of lawers that would kill to sue an ISP and get in the news.

They can say that, but you can say, show me so I can see if someone is not stealing my connection.
They can't just say that this is what you used without having a record of it. Although in Iran I'm guessing consumer rights are not quite the same as in the US.
It's like someone going shopping for you, asking you for $300 and not showing you what they bought, then handing you and empty bag and saying "it was a very expensive empty bag".

This ADSL device, is it a modem or a modem + wireless router? If its a router, maybe someone is hijacking your wireless connection.
Make sure you have WPA2 password set if this is a wireless router.
