Be aware everyone that Windows 10 has permission to use your Broadband connection to share lengthy software updates with other internet users anywhere else in the world.
Use this link to check your settings and if necessary to turn this option OFF.

Unless, of course you're perfectly happy for Microsoft to steal your bandwidth to send out patches for their poorly developed product. :didact:

best solution instead of turning it off is to scrap it altogether and get a mac :)

Use Linux, it is free, works well once you get used to it. Best of all, you can get shut of the Evil Monster that is Microsoft and all it's nasty bugs.

I have to agree with both replies.
Especially as I have had a Mac and still have a spare laptop that I loaded up with Linux.

The worst bug infecting Microsoft is the man himself who is convinced he is better than anyone else and all of us should realise that he knows what's best for us !!JUNK!!
