Have Microsoft taken control of all of our Computers ?
I have tried this, and I have tried that, yet Microsoft seem determined to make it impossible for me to stop their downloads. I have tried using the various settings in W10 Pro Aniversary, at least I think that I have found all of them, because it seems that with so many options etc, Microsoft have made it all into a bit of a treasure hunt/paper chase.
I have tried stopping downloads via my hosts file but a new address seems to start doing the downloading ?
Another thing that I have tried is a programme called GlassWire. This does not seem to be living up to expectations, but I have only recently purchased it at £106 inc UK TAX.
I have scanned with Windows Defender and Malwarebytes, so as far as I know there is nothing in the background opening any doors.
My internet connection is by a 3G Dongle. I can connect and disconnect a number of times a day, and each time I connect I am unable to stop a download of between 13MB and 60MB.
More than half a GB a day, downloading who knows what, is not unusual.
At the time of writing this post, Mr Teddy is sitting in the corner where I threw him, upside down with no arms or legs.
Please help, before Mr Teddy gets his head pulled off !
