Windows 10 users frequently complain about the slowness of the Internet connection. The main culprit: services and processes. They consume huge amount of system resources including the network bandwidth.

Disable Windows Update Delivery

In order to reduce the load on the servers at Microsoft, they have introduced a system to let your PC share the updates between other Windows 10 users via a P2P sharing service. When your PC is idle, the network services on your PC runs in background to send update files on your computer to other peers (just like Torrent seeds). This will eat up your bandwidth massively.

However, you can disable Windows Update delivery to reduce network usage. The result of which will be that your PC will communicate with the Microsoft Servers only at the time of updates.

Go to Settings → Update & Security → Windows Update → Advanced Options.

And Click on “Choose how updates are delivered” and then you’ll have an option to execute the following actions:

  • Turn off the P2P file transfer
    • This will completely turn off the P2P file transferring mode, and will only use the Windows servers via your Internet connection only when you are updating your PC.
  • Turn on the P2P mode, but Select “PCs on my local network”
    • This will limit the P2P transfer mode to the computers on your local network.
      This is highly beneficial when you have multiple Windows 10 installations in the same network, because only a single bundle of the updates will be downloaded from the Internet and it will be shared among all the computers across the local network.

This will give you a boost up on your network speed.

Stop Background Services/Processes

There can be some services and processes running on the background, that eat up your bandwidth. You have open the Task Manager (or Resource Monitor) to identify these type of processes, which consumes a huge amount of your bandwidth.

Here are some bandwidth hungry applications you can stop/disable using Services and/or Startup sections under Services (Win Key + R → type Services and press Enter).

  • Steam
  • Torrent Applications
  • Antivirus (Virus Database Updates)
  • EA Origin
  • Cloud Sharing Applications (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox etc)
  • Adobe Updates

Alternatively you can use the Game Boost feature of RegInOut which will automatically turn off unwanted services in Windows 10.

Install official Wi-Fi adapter drivers

Your Windows 10 installation seldom automates the process of installing drivers for your devices, including the network adapters, using it’s own repositories. For instance, you’ll get the drivers for your sound card, most of the graphics cards and even bluetooth drivers (for laptops) when you’re installing Windows 10.

However, these drivers may cause incompatibility issues, unlike the official drivers. The reason is, Windows 10 might be bundled with outdated drivers, and the official drivers make sure you’re getting the latest and most stable set of drivers which are 100% compatible with your devices.

To overcome this issue, you can download and install the latest Wireless adapter drivers from the manufacturer’s website. This will ensure the stability and performance of your device.
