Re: [HN9000] Something on new computer is draining my bandwidth
I agree Don, it sounded however that the OP was concerned with FAP and "mysterious usage". If the OP were to keep the computer off until the free time and then update that would get Him/Her past past FAP.
The poster didn't seem to have usage concerns with the old computer, so once fully updated the new one should be in the same usage pattern.
As for messing with the registry...that could get a little dicy depending on the experience level of the OP.
