Re: [HN9000] Something on new computer is draining my bandwidth

When a new PC is pre-loaded with a software package, every one likely defaults to auto-updownload-install. So besides Windows, you'll also have to go through all the 3rd party software and set each of them to manual download as well.

I didn't realize that's what BITS did actually. But it will in fact run every time you restart Windows, unless/until you physically turn the service off
