Few weeks ago, a friend of mine called me to
complain about his PC consuming a lot of MB
after viewing few pages on his browser, i
decided to do a little research into what could
be sapping data underground and fortunately, i
was able to come up with this tutorial on how to
control data
consumption on your PC.

Firstly, you need to understand that turning off
windows update is not enough to reduce data
consumption as several other apps on your PC
could still have auto-update features
programmed to start using the internet
immediately certain actions are initiated. The
following steps would guide you through the
process involved in taking full control of data
usage on your PC. Enjoy

Step 1: Launch task manager ( Right click on
Taskbar - at the bottom of the screen - select
"start task Manager")

Step 2: Click Services

Step 3
Select background intelligence service (
see screenshot below)

Step 4: Click Stop towards the top left corner as
seen in the screenshot below

Step 5: Exit

NOTE: Make sure you do this whenever you are
to use the internet on your PC but in case you
wish to make this a permanent action check the
BONUS tip below but keep in mind that it is cool
to update your applications in order to keep
your PC secured and less vulnerable.

BONUS TIP: Instead of clicking stop, right click
on the intelligence.... >> Properties >> Change
startup type to Manual
