So Windows 10 is a pretty awesome operating system and generally (so far at least) well received by the majority of users. There is one thing that might not be so awesome… by default Windows 10 is stealing your internet bandwidth.

Why? Because Windows Update are now peer-to-peer shared. In other words, the updates you download are automatically “seeded” so that others can download them directly from you, instead of the Microsoft web servers. It works in the same as torrents do; you download and at the same time seed the file for others to download.
