This is my PC, MS can tsek.
My question is what can I do about it. Nothing. My only other option is Linux or Mac. Which none is a solution. If you have a solution to completely stop any incoming and outgoing updates or traffic please let me know.As you have pointed out to RTFM, well, there is simply no manual available which exposes the functionality behind the thousands of windows threads running inside svchost. Threads don't carry unique ID's in that the thread ID will be different each time that process is executed.
You will notice a few of them which of specific names, however threads you cannot simply shut down as multi-threading is called that for a reason, that one thread which may be problematic, may have several very helpful nested threads and shutting it down could crash your system. I'm a software developer and I create threads quite often. I think I understand a little bit about threading. It's a complex topic.
See this one here? It's downloading at 500kb/s. It's been doing that for several hours now. Feel free to Google svchost.exe+0x4380 or find a manual on Earth that covers that. You won't. Why? Because as I have pointed out threads don't carry the same unique ID.
There are plenty of settings available to manage windows download, but ultimately without 3rd party software, you cannot stop Windows update, only delay it. You are only given so much control over what data streams to and from your machine, but for the most part the internet is filled with "threads" about people wondering where their data is going.
Note: Even with Windows update completely disabled, svchost and it's multiple variants, continues to stream data to and from my machine to god knows where and why.
Edit: I think what I find most fascinating about Microsoft fan boys is that they don't seem bothered by this at all and are happy to just turn a blind eye. People who complain are simply told: "Well if you don't like it then don't use Windows" .
You may not be able to eliminate traffic entirely, but you can stop BITS and Windows Update. BITS you can disable easily enough but Win update will keep starting itself.My question is what can I do about it. Nothing. My only other option is Linux or Mac. Which none is a solution. If you have a solution to completely stop any incoming and outgoing updates or traffic please let me know.
Throttling only delays the update to a time when you are not busy with your machine. This won't help OP
One more thing. If you are wondering why so much bandwidth is leaving your machine, then take note. Your machine is used as part of a giant cloud to update other Windows 10 machines on the internet.
Do you mean why green? Pick it as the accent color, under personalization > Colors.Hey yours looks different to my one. What version/type are you running?
That's a good concept in general, but not terribly practical. Windows 10 has a lot of different settings and I've noticed that they're not all in obvious places. I've got long experience with Windows all the way back to 95 (except ME, for some reason I missed out on that one. I was probably lucky.) Pretty much everything is in consistent places, Control Panel was where you needed to go, new editions of Windows for the most part didn't destroy knowledge that you had which worked on the old ones.That is what I mean about RTFM! Work through every setting available and choose and set things to suit you. Including all the settings that have an impact on windows update.
If you don't understand anything follow the links and read up on it. When done, you will know plenty about windows.
Why? because you did not manage the process?I just started up my win 10 laptop boss wanted me to check some vpn thing at a client, I last used it while in hospital for the day & set the hotspot connection to unmetered at the time.
Bloody thing gobbled over R80 bucks before I could change the setting back (was busy somewhere else).
What a POS!
It is not your fault. it is how it is designed, it is obscured with intention to fool the user.It's easy to say that the whole unmetered connection thing is the user's fault, but it's also not entirely obvious to a non-technical user. Why should Windows be allowed to waste all your data downloading updates if you just wanted to connect and check a few emails or something? IMO a more sensible setting should be a metered connection by default, or at least a wizard should pop up on connecting to a new network where a stupid person can click "I'm at home on a fast line" or "I'm using my mobile phone to tether" or something.
Loads of bad design decisions have been made with Win10. This is a pity. It's got a lot of improvements under the hood, but so far the user experience has been very poor.
A generic issue, it is how Microsoft designed this OS. It didn't happen with Win7, why it should happen with Win10 if it is not a generic issue as you claim?None of us can comment without you checking a few things. It is ypu machine, you need to find out what is going on in a step for step fashion.
The fact that many of us do not experience these issues means that it is not a generic issue at all.
