Delivery Optimization destroys my bandwidth

Ekrem Duvarbaşı 0 Reputation points

I cannot disable or set any setting to Delivery Optimization. The Settings under Windows Update > Advanced Settings > Delivery Optimization does not change anything. It's also disabled at Registry Editor. But It always keep itself up and use all of my bandwidth. I cannot use my internet while it's running and I don't even have any idea about how long it will last. And It always start itself again after I close it.

    Hello there, By default, Windows turns off Delivery Optimization when it detects you are on a metered connection. So, If you switch between a metered and unlimited connection frequently, you can enable metered connection for the network with limited bandwidth. There are some users who has reported similar issues with the service in this thread Hope this resolves your Query !! --If the reply is helpful, please Upvote and Accept it as an answer--

    Ummm no that never works, even after pausing all updates from the Microsoft store and the windows updates as well as games from the Xbox app, there is still data eating 135 mbs plus per second. My question is to where? I have no registry errors and no other devices on my network that use windows, or an Xbox so where is this data going? I will not be used to update other people's computers that's not even close to being ok or ethical. So, the only option I see is ditching Windows all together because this has happened repeatedly, and the dumb widgets that won't turn off and the other ignorant marketing crap that is obviously are important than giving us a reliable operating system that doesn't just send random data to random places. And the horridly optimized BITS is without errors as usual.
