Having the same issue with several users with a Probook 450 G7 Windows 10 machine. Any solutions? System shows excessively high and no malware found on full system or root kit scan. Users log off everyday...

Hi,

You can check the data usage in Windows 10 by following the following steps:

1. Use the Windows key + I keyboard shortcut to open the Settings app.
2. Click Network & Internet.
3. Click Data usage. Under Overview, you'll see the total data usage from the last 30 days for Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections.
4. Click the Usage details link to view network data usage for all your applications installed on your computer.

Example:

12146-data-usage2.png


Best regards,
Leon

Hi,
Windows Update runs on a Peer to Peer network, you download updates form hundreds of PC's around the world and at the same time, hundreds of PC's are taking those updates form your PC, this can result in very large data usage by Windows Updates.

Open the Settings App
Go to Update and Security - Windows Updates - Advanced Options
Click Delivery Optimization
Turn off all options you find there.

If you are running version 1803 of Windows 10, click 'Advanced Options' on that Delivery Optimization page
Pull all sliders to the left.

Hope it helps.

Best regards
Cherry

Yes the computer was checked for peer to peer updates. That is now turned off. In a month I will look at the usage.

It has been more than a month, peer to peer is turned off, we are still getting huge data usage from system 4981.9 Gb on this machine.
On a sister machine for the month only 119.9 Gb

So we are back to wondering why so high
