Re: Broadband usage problem

Why do I keep getting emails to say I have almost used my allowance when I have hardly used the computer at all? My 10 gb allowance used to keep me researching all day several days a week and now I seem to use the whole amount, with a few emails in a few days.  Can someone help?

 

I do seem to be getting endless updates from Windows 10 which I haven't asked for. That is the only thing I can think of.

Re: Broadband usage problem

Welcome to the forum.  To reduce the bandwidth consumption caused by Windows 10 sharing updates over the internet to other Win 10 users have a look here:

Windows will update automatically whether you ask for them or not.  The only way to stop this would be for you to disable automatic updates in Windows Services.  Then your PC would not receive any updates.  Not recommended by many people.
