Hi All,

Can somebody please advise why Limelight Networks would be continuously uploading data to my PC?

So far, the company has used nearly 2 Gb of my bandwidth, and there doesn't appear to be anything to show for it.

This has only been occuring since my update to Windows 10 from Win 7 Ultimate.

Thanks.

You might want to;

1. Go to settings

2. Go to update and security

3. Go to advanced options

4.Go to choose how updates are delivered

5. Shut off updates from more than one place

6. Make sure only PCs on my local network is checked and not PCs on the internet

 

This should help you.

Thank you Rocky,

I have done that, and will watch my bandwidth monitor for any further unknown activity. I've heard some nasty reports about Limelight, and it was my concern that there may have been some possibility of a malware upload.

I do know that Limelight supports some very well known and trusted companies, but my suspicious nature prefers not to be too trusting!!

I will update if there is anything further to report!

All the best.
