Slow202 found a setting in Windows 10 that sends updates to your PC as well as the entire internet (by default).  Although it's not a security breech, it may use unwanted bandwidth from your home modem.  

 

To disable, go to:

 

All Settings >  Update and Security > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Chose how updates are delivered

Mine was set up like this by default. Is there a way it should be changed?
