Hello NL computer gurus,

I recently installed Windows 10 Operating System on my Laptop having moved on from Windows 7. My experience using the new OS has been nothing short of thrilling as Windows 10 is far better than Windows 7 I have been used to ever since I learned how to use a computer independently.

However, I noticed that there seems to be a lot of Windows update going on in the system and my source of internet is through an HSPDA modem which has an Airtell SIM on it. Ultimately, it burns my data very fast.

I checked for how to set my Internet access as a metered connection but there seems to be no option for that (DialUp) except for Wifi.


Please is there any other way I can meter this connection so as to reduce what the OS does with it thereby stopping some not dire updates. Between yesterday and this morning, more than 1.8GB has already been burnt whereas what I have done with the system is simply writing and on Wordpress and basic browsing.

Please help me out.

Re: All Windows 10 Problems And Solutions (Spring Creators update links added) by Bubewilson(m): 7:06am On Jan 02
If you are using WiFi as your source of Internet, you can easily set it as a metered connection so you OS won't be doing some not so needy updates with it.


See the guide/pictures attached in this thread - https://www.nairaland.com/4929950/how-set-internet-access-modem

However, if you are connected to the Internet via a USB Modem, it appears there is no way you can set the Internet connection as metered as it appears Windows only recognises it as a Dial-Up connection.

In all, assuming you have a software on your computer that uses data in the background without your knowledge, you can use Glasswire to monitor what and what uses your data. The software has is available both for PC and Android phones, very accurate, easy to understand, use and as well basically free.

See Glasswire PC app here - https://www.glasswire.com/download/

I hope these helps @Abbeykabir2

You're right: stopping BITS and/or Windows Updates will automatically be started, however you can prevent such updates by ensuring you're on BATTERY SAVER mode when connected online. Don't be on AC and set your battery to be on saver.
You can use Data monitoring/firewall apps; I used Glasswire sometimes ago but you must activate now after 7days trial to use the firewall feature.

I didnt experience that when using windows 10 creator update, in fact a point my PC even refused to update because of the way I force stopped it, I had to restart more often,

I will check back with this October update and give u feedback, but stopping the service is usually d best option

Perhaps in addition to this, setting your Wifi connection as metered will go a log way to stop the amount of data the Windows Host Process (c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe) consumes.
Re: All Windows 10 Problems And Solutions (Spring Creators update links added) by Bubewilson(m): 11:01am On Jan 02
Here is what i found with Glasswire when I did not set my Wifi connection as metered, the Windows Host Process ate up to 195MB when all i was doing was basic web surfing and writing, while Google Chrome browser was only using a reasonable amount of data which i indeed used.

Re: All Windows 10 Problems And Solutions (Spring Creators update links added) by Bubewilson(m): 11:05am On Jan 02
Compare it to the following day when I set my Wifi connection as metered, see how much data the same Windows Host Process was now using while my Google chrome as always used what is fair enough.


So, I basically think, setting your Wifi connection as metered is one sure way around this.

Hi, please how do I make my USB 3.0 ports start working.
I recently got the laptop and found out that only the 2.0 ports are working.
I don't know where to install the drivers but I've gone to control panel to update all USB drivers. They are already updated to the latest version.but the ports are not still working. They charge my phones but can't do more than that.

Secondly, my pc can't restart. But it can boot normally. But when I attempt to restart, it give me that reset option kinda stuff.
I want to know if it's a cause for alarm that is, if it's important a pc must be able to reboot.

Thirdly where can I get a graphics card for Hp 8460p.
It has Intel HD 3000.

Which one is it? If windows doesn't come on,how did you get to taskbar?
A Picture of your PC screen will help,is it showing blue screen or taking you to advance options?
If it takes you to advance options,do system restore. It's a software you installed that is causing incompatibility issue or a virus.

Restart is very important,it is different from turning off and putting on (booting) your PC. If you update windows,if the update requires restart,and you put off and put on your Pc,it will still say pending restart under windows update settings.
USB ports go bad,it might not be the driver. Except it was working perfectly before a new windows installation. Then you can say it's Driver problem.
Did you mean Graphics card or graphics driver? If it's display driver,just Google " Hp 8460P display driver" click on the result that has HP website link.

Chai,na wao,every small problem people ask for solution,you people will be saying format format. Don't you have any technical knowledge upstairs? Format should be a last resort. Infact the only reason you should format your system apart from upgrading to another O.S, is if your PC can't boot to desktop and you have tried every possible solution to no avail.
If your PC boots to desktop, believe me,you don't need formating,because you can access various troubleshooting options to solve your problem.

Pls what do I do to my HP laptop? Recently when I plug in the charger,it charges for a while and then stops charging. It would tell me,"plugged in but not charging". And then the indicator lights alternates between red and the white colour that indicates battery full. Thanks as I anticipate your responses...
