I also update McAfee manually.

When your data went from 80 to 46% two days ago, could you post screen captures of your McAfee history log during that time. It may take more than one screen shot to cover the period unless you can make a .pdf print of it. That should show what was coming in and going out during that time.

Lea when your status meter says 100% how many MBs does it show you have?

Re: Usage depleted overnight. All updates set during free time.

At 7:00 am this morning my status meter refilled to 96% and my router traffic meter rolled over to zero.  I was not on line.  I opened my status meter and watched it drop from my desktop.  I took screen shots of the router, the status meter and glasswire.  I was on line during free time.  You will notice that on glasswire since it starts a midnight.  Notice the date and time are on all of the screen shots.  
I left for work at 7:45.  No one has been home today.  I took the next screenshots showing usage while no one was home.

This is the second set of screen shots when I returned home.  For some reason they would not post with the last ones.

When my status meter is full, it says 500 MB.  If i use less that 50% it rolls over to 100%.  If I use more that 50% it goes up 50% plus the left over from the day before. If there is nothing left over, I start the day with 50% which is 250 MB
Not sure how to do the McAfee history log.  I will check it out later.  I'm out of time for now.

Double click the McAfee icon in the task bar or on desktop and select all history.

I only used McAfee when it is pre-installed on a new computer until the time runs out, but that is the way it worked for me. Check the above site to see how to do it and use the other features. You could also look in Help.

Go back in time to the incident the other day and also look at why you lost data allowance today while at work.

Your screen captures are a bit small for my old eyes but Charles McCool appears to see them ok. If you can make a .pdf of the list then the text size is easily enlarged.

Photo captures in .png or .jpg do not enlarge well.

Ron, I think if you double click on my screen shots they will enlarge for you to see.
This is the history that I got from McAfee for this morning.  It all looks the same.  One block after another from similar addresses.

Lea ever single Byte of data usage Im seeing in the screen shots is caused by Google Chrome. I would add ad blocker pro to Chrome and turn of auto play in Facebook but I dont see a data leak just Chrome using data, a bit more than I would think but still Chrome. you might try firefox for a while and see if it uses less data but its not your hughes equipment
