Large upload amount that I can't figure out...

That's a lot of data for something you already had the image for.  I guess it had to download updates? Fingers crossed that this will solve the issue!


Yep.  The updates, including for the built in apps and whatnot.  Plus, I had to download a couple of programs that I had forgotten to save.  

 

The funny thing is, the W10 1809 ISO itself isn't even that big.  Nearly, but not quite.  Of course, if I had to download ISO, as well, I would have done all this startinig at 2AM.  

 

I didn't realize what I did would use so much data.

That's Windows for you -- cumbersome.  I hope everything is working properly now.

@GabeU, don't know if anything to to do with your original problem but my Comodo AV popped up an alert last night about Bitcoin mining malware trying to attach to Chrome. Scary stuff going on right now.

Very scary stuff, and a bad distro of Chrome is right in the middle of it.

Oh, wow.  That's interesting.  It hasn't happened since, and I ran all of the scans I mentioned, but it's entirely possible that something like that could have slipped through, especially if it's new.  

 

Thanks for the info.  I'm keeping a much closer eye on it since the re-installation.
