I don't know if this applies to you, and it may very well not, but if you have Windows 10, there was a decent size update that was released some time yesterday, and Windows 10 will automatically download it and install it.
Aside of this, people on here can certainly help and I hope your problem is resolved. I have confidence that it can be.
Also, it's not in any way advantageous for Hughesnet to take people's data. All that would do is give them a bad name, and they are not out to earn that reputation. Again, I'm hopeful that your issue can be resolved, whatever it may be.
