  1. stop downloading !
  2. If you stay on the internet, your computer will be constantly communicating with your ISP, but only tiny amounts of data.
  3. 8gb isnt much these days seriously...
  4. Stop running torrents.
    Their default setup is to upload to other users while you are downloading.
  5. Best answer
    Windows update sends data, any web page viewing used data, video streaming uses lots of data. Have the ISP send you an itemized list of what was used, or have them install a monitoring software you can check.
  6. I close my update now but I need pay $50 every month more , make me worry soon I open noot book uploading or downloading happen?

  8. If you just turn on the notebook, it should not be sending any data anywhere unless you have a virus or spyware and if you have automatic updates shut off. You may want to find another ISP, charging for 8 gig of usage is outrageous, unless it's a wireless connection or a satellite.
