  1. Windows update using all available bandwidth. Disabled the p2p updates


    I've already changed my update settings to disable Windows 10 P2P updates because my upload is less than a 1MB, but every time I get a Windows update for my system it steals all of my limited 4.1MB download bandwidth.

    Its becoming really frustrating because whatever I'm doing at the time online becomes almost impossible. Videos on YouTube will grind to a halt, or at best become sub 240p with constant buffering issues pausing the video every 10/20 seconds.

    Every other version of Windows I've used (every version since XP) has never behaved like this before, and other software that updates in the background will adapt taking into consideration what the user is currently doing. Its become so annoying that I've been opening task manger and ending Windows update processes, but even than is persistently restarts the update process again.

    If I had decent internet speeds this probably wouldn't be an issues for me.

    :)

    Windows 10 Update & Security is missing from settings

    Hi,

    Using the P2P option allows you to share a Windows update to all computers on our local network. The setting to not allow Windows to use your bandwidth for P2P Windows updates is still available in Update & Security. Go to Advanced options then Delivery Optimization.

    Feel free to post back if you have other Windows concerns.

  3. Windows 10 Store and windows update problem. Getting error code " (0x80070422) while downloading the apps from Store.

    Original Title: Windows 10 Store and windows update problem

    I have disabled windows update service from 'services.msc' because keeping it enabled/running makes it impossible to use internet because a service named 'Service host: Local System' takes up all of my 2Mbps bandwidth. I can't use anything regarding internet
    if windows update is not disabled. I have disabled p2p update sharing and all other tricks I can possibly find on the internet to lower the bandwidth usage but nothing helped even a little bit except to disable the windows update service altogether.

    The problem is that if windows update service is disabled, Windows Store refuses to work properly! Sometimes it closes automatically, sometimes the search box won't take any input and sometimes it just doesn't download anything. It shows an error (0x80070422).

    If I keep windows update enabled then the store starts working fine again. But if I disable windows update then the problems happen again.

    Is there any way to make the windows store work without running the windows update service? Or are there any possible way to solve the crazy bandwidth issue? (I have tried every possible thing that can be found on google search. Nothing helps even a little
    bit to solve the bandwidth problem)

    What should I do in this situation?

    My windows version is 1511(Os Build 10586.420)

    Hi, you can choose when Windows downloads updates by setting Windows update to Notify - that means you get an action centre notification, and when you click on that, Settings opens and you see what the update is. You can chose to download it at your convenience.

    I have posted about this a number of times - it's available to Home and Pro although the latter has more control via the group policy editor.

    How? By any of these methods:
    a. Using Winaero's free tweaker (convenient)
    b. If you have Win 10 Pro using the Group Policy editor - see the tutorial
    c. If you have Home - by using a registry edit or reg file - see the tutorial

    Tutorial: (includes Notify)
    Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10 Windows 10 Windows Update Activation Tutorials

    Either Option 1, 4 or Option 2 4

    And finally if you have Pro you can set Defer Feature Updates
    - which means you can delay major build upgrades.

    There are further time delays available via the group Policy Editor (Pro).


    ==============================================
    Other updates:
    Note that Settings allows you to select which apps update data in the background; there's also a 4 hourly scheduled task run to update the universal apps.

  7. Thank you for the suggestions. I found this potential solution that involves editing the registry to enable and limit maximum bandwidth for Window bits?

    How To: Stop Windows windows update from using all your bandwidth - Thomas Barthelemy

    Windows update has been going on all day, since this morning, and if I don't keep killing the processes my internet is basically unusable. This is such a stupid over site by MS, although I find it hard to believe this is an over site. I shouldn't have to select different hours for updates, and when I'm not using my desktop PC its booted down anyway. I'm kinda missing windows 8 now but my win8 activation key is probably useless by now.

    Windows update using all available bandwidth. Disabled the p2p updates

    I've never noticed a problem with it myself, and the final drop to my house is a copper telephone wire. 37Mb/s down, 9Mb/s up. TalkTalk £25 /mth (currently including almost all calls, line rental and a mobile allowance) - using ethernet.

    There are some big updates- 3Gb+ for build upgrades, then often a similar sized one following that.

  9. I'm in the UK and speed without updating to optical isn't great 4.1MB/0.7MB
    I just set the update times between 5am-6am as a temporary measure, and it still keeps updating itself? This version of windows really doesn't care about giving its users a somewhat false sense that they're in control of their own operating system.

    How did you do that? Enable/disable the update service on a schedule? A firewall?

    If you mean Active Hours - that just means your PC won't restart during that period- but it will download and certainly install updates which don't need a restart.

    Note this extra level of control coming in the future (insider builds at present):

  12. Your right, I changed the active hours without really paying attention, which of course will not stop the update process.

    I'm just really frustrated at the moment because other people are also using the home connection, and when I boot up my desktop it immediately starts updating, using all the bandwidth, and stopping everyone else from using the internet. My only access to the web right now is my win10 PC, so to use the web I have to keep stopping the update process all the time. It's a ridiculous situation to be in, and its been going on since this morning.

    Set updates to notify as I suggested. #3

    Note that manual links to each update are given in a thread per update in the News section if that helps for large updates e.g. at all.
