Is it possible that I am connected to someone elses network and they are controlling what files get downloaded to my computers?
Once I selected to install about 4, what I thought were legit updates. Windows restarted, it took awhile and it said something about making 4000+ registry Changes. That seems like a bit much to me.
What does this sound like to you?
Can a hacked modem or Router keep someone connected to your comp and enable them to send files to your computer?
Are my comps possessed?

Windows will update certain files without notification, and not all updates are removable. The several thousand reg entries are usually when a core windows update is installed. I assume you mean the black screen showing X operations out of a total figure, followed by a reboot?
Factory reset will likely add stuff you didn't want as part of the process. Sysprep can be used to create the restore image..
If you use wireless, and have no password, your computer can be owned, even with a firewall.
Depending on your OS version, you can set the group policy to totally enforce what happens with updates. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/328010
I always use it after an update changed my setting.
