Windows 10: Windows 10 update download uses entire bandwidth
Windows 10 update download uses entire bandwidth
Hi all,Whenever windows downloads updates, it always uses the entire internet bandwidth. Due to this, I can't even check emails ,even antivirus can't download updates and it takes many hours before I can finally use the PC. I find this a big pain that I can't even do basic stuff online and have to keep the PC switched on just to download the updates!!! Is there any way to limit the bandwidth used by the update download. I have tried the option mentioned here,http://superuser.com/questions/10392...adb1?auth=1But still windows ignores it and I am helpless. I am not looking forward to install 3rd party software to limit the bandwidth due to snooping/privacy concerns.

I am downloading the update manually. Have others had the same issue with windows update not showing the update?
I'm not sure my WU is working because of this.
We live in a very remote area and our sat based isp has heavy bandwidth restrictions besides being slow and overpriced. Have attempted the 3GB upgrade download twice unsuccessfully. Are there any other options to obtaining the upgrade?
I work for a small company. We have no WSUS server. I've noticed that if I build a fresh machine and go to run the updates, it consume our entire internet connection. This did not / does not happen with our Windows 7 machines.
We have a 30 MB...
I have a decent FAST internet -- but latest update (only a security update) seems to be taking LONGER than the ENTIRE update I did going from 10162 to 10240.
