    You might play a little with Process Monitor to monitor network/files writing activities.
    It is a bit complex, but if you filter out windows processes, it might give you some answers.

    Have a look in the advanced settings for windows update, then the chose how updates are delivered option

    Make sure you are not sharing windows updates with everyone on the internet
