Windows 10: svchost.exe intensive network usage
svchost.exe intensive network usage

I just recently installed Windows 10 on my Dell Inspiron Laptop and so far I am not impressed at all - in fact, I am very seriously debating one of two actions - re-install Windows 7 or switching to an entirely different OS.
So, basically I upgraded to Windows 10, and it's been a huge nightmare.
To start with, I didn't enjoy the experience and tried to downgrade, but I was informed the backup was corrupted (it was using a different file structure or something) and...
