Your computer is being used to distribute updates
If you have Windows 10 you may want to prevent it from sharing windows update files with other computers. When Microsoft starts pushing out updates its Servers get slammed. To help them distribute files they have given Windows 10 the ability to share updates on your computer to other computers. This is on by default and if you don’t like the idea of MS using your computer to help distribute updates you need to turn it off.
To get to the configuration page do the following:
- Search for “Check for updates” in the Start menu.
- Under “Windows Update” choose “Advanced options.”
- Under “Choose how updates are installed” click “Choose how updates are delivered.”
- Disable the toggle under “Updated from more than one place.”
Screenshot on the right is what it looks like by default. You can either turn it off, or let it work for you if you have more than one Windows 10 computer on your network by clicking on “PC’s on my local network”
Look below at screenshots.
