Hi Cat, I'd suggest a pm to Pip

I don't think it should be using a lot as it's mainly text.  It depends on what package you're on and what your allowance is.  Also the amount of emails you're receiving and sending can affect how much mb you're using and if there are any updates going on in the background.  However the actual forums wont use up much.

Well, I've had technicians from three network come on my comp and turn off 'updating automatically'.  The last few months, it has never cost as much data and I'm not doing much.  If anything I've been on the Forum less but I seem to run out of data before the end of month.  Something aint right.  Three net just called.  They are irritating; perfect english based in the Philipines (wrong spelling) and they all speak with the same extremely sickly sweet tone that annoys the hell outa me.  Anyway, ''complaining-cat'' has told her I want to escalate or elevate my complaint to an independent body.  She is sending me the last two months data usage so I can compare.  I also read Pip's PM and she understood more that the Forum is mainly text; before I didn't know how best to describe the lay out.  I just
knew it is basic format, no ads, etc (which is what I love the most about this Forum)

Anyway... I'm no further forward, but I can't continue topping up my account if it continues to rob me blind!  I wonder how much the dongles for TMob are.  Anyone any idea?

data useage can be confusing, when you look at any page on the net it all adds up, particularly any graphics on there, even small pics can all add up.
 as has been mentioned turn off auto updates, for everything, not just windows.

also, if you want to speed up your system a bit, get into but if you can, go into GPEDIT.msc and MSCONFIG.
remember what you do there, so you can change things back if you need.
if you are adventurous, get into regedit, but be very careful there.... very easy to mess up the system.
