Windows ALERT! 
If you have your PC set to download Windows updates automatically, Microsoft may have already downloaded Windows 10 onto your machine.   IF  you do NOT want to upgrade to Windows 10, Read this .   If you are on a cellular limited data plan this "hidden download" could gobble up your entire monthly data allotment.  This article tells how to tell if it has already downloaded (without your knowledge), and how to get rid of it if you don't want it. 
  • If you are on a limited data plan, be very careful.  You can choose to have Windows 10 not automatically install its updates, but Windows 10 will still automatically DOWNLOAD the updates . . . and that's what eats your data plan.  You must set each WiFi connection you use as "Metered" to avoid this. If you connect to your router via a cable, you cannot set the connection to metered and the download will happen automatically  See Details Here.  

  • The second concern for mobile data users is "connection sharing" for updates See Details Here .    Here's how to  Turn Off shared Updates
