  1. I do apologize but this is the best thing that Microsoft has done. If I was Microsoft I would make Windows unusable if those updates were not installed. I worked for Sega during the Dreamcast days and software piracy destroyed them. You dont want the updates then dont use the OS
  2. Its only security updates that are installed automatically.but they are numbered so you can't miss one
  3. I haven't installed Windows 10. I'll wait till the very large update due in October before installing
  4. Sadly, Windows 10 Is Stealing Your Bandwidth 'By Default' — Disable It Immediately One thing to be aware of in Windows 10 After installing Windows 10, Feeling like your Internet Bandwidth is dropping away? Windows 10 is stealing your network bandwidth. Along with the privacy features related to Wi-Fi Sense, Windows 10 users should check for another hidden by default feature that uses your network bandwidth to share updates with other Windows 10 users across the Internet. Microsoft launched Windows 10 on July 29 and offered a free upgrade to Windows 7,8 and 8.1 users, and for anyone who wants to download it. But, handling millions of simultaneous 3.5GB downloads is quite difficult for the company. So, in order to cope up with the issue, Microsoft has baked a new feature into its latest desktop operating system that uses the torrent-style approach to obtain software updates, allowing Windows 10 users to download updates from other users. Windows 10 is Stealing your Internet Bandwidth The feature, known as Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO), is initially designed to help users get faster software updates, which is quite a good idea to handle massive internet traffic of up to 40 Terabits per second (TBps). WUDO works a lot like torrents work. Your computer running Windows 10 is used as part of a peer-to-peer network to deliver software updates faster to others, each person distributing a little bit of the files across multiple computers and helping everyone download updates quickly. But, this peer-to-peer sharing method offered by Windows 10 is using your precious Internet bandwidth, without hinting you about it, because the feature is enabled by default in Windows 10 Home and Pro edition. WUDO is also enabled in Windows 10 Enterprise and Education, but only for the local network. How to Disable Windows Update Delivery Optimization (WUDO)? You can disable the feature, but the option is buried deep in the Settings menu for Windows Update. To turn this feature OFF, follow these given steps: Go to Settings in the Start menu Search for Update & Security Under Windows Update, open Advanced Options Under Choose How Updates are Installed, select Choose how updates are delivered Disable the toggle under Updated from More than One Place The feature is a good idea to speed up software updates, but enabling it by default without the knowledge of users is probably not at all a great idea. In a statement, a Microsoft said that the feature "helps people get updates and apps more quickly if they have a limited or unreliable internet connection" and that it "doesn't slow down your internet connection"because it uses a "limited portion" of idle upload bandwidth.
  5. Maybe once a month trip to the Big Place is called for as they have M&S there! http://global.marksandspencer.com/ph/ Just saying. JP :) Was in MoA this afternoon. Called into M&S for a look. Wine,biscuits,coffee,tea and a small selection of cereal and sauces. Then called in at SM Hypermarket and they are selling Tesco Finest.
  6. One just opened at the dasma side of Imus. That gives you about 1/2 hour to the highlands of tagatay and an hour to the beaches of batangas
  7. And if you use pingplotter it will show all ip addresses from the local machine to the server you are connected to. Pingplotter is running all the time my machine is on
  8. Not to be arsy or anything but if the poster is putting IP addresses as part of the question but cant see it locally then how the hell can he see it so then surely they are not public and can be renewed Globe last month stated in a press release that all IP addresses would be fixed to the type of service being purchase.
  9. and just to check do this https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~help/networking/IP_renew.html
  10. Isn't it because Globe have now fixed the IP addresses to the services they offer. DSL is 192.xxx.xxx.xx Tattoo is 112.xxx.xx.xx LTE is 168.xxx.xx.xxx. The numbers are not correct they are actually PLDT numbers which I use and they are for DSL, Smart and LTE plus another set for that new system which isn't available in Manila.
  11. Wow links I'm on windows 8.1 I use live tiles.
  12. When I go out for a stroll it is always alone unfortunately the family see it different. So I go out 2 minutes later I am followed. The game now is for me to spot the protectors and for them not to be spotted. Its getting quite boring so I've told them stop or I will leave not that I will I enjoy it to much. I have no worries about walking about here I also have no bars on my windows or guard dogs apart from the whole barangay seems to know who should be there. I don't know if anyone else has heard it but "its to difficult " meaning dangerous gets really boring
  13. I used the term protector rather than bodyguard as they are there to protect me from myself. They all know that if someone tried to rob me I would fight back. They are there to stop me fighting back and probably being murdered. The protectors when I spot them are females and kids. I go for a walk and I am followed by 2 or 3 of the family. I am worth more alive than dead as all my money is sat in the UK which they have no access to.
  14. which is why I don't agree with going 2 islands away
