A couple of days ago I suddenly had a huge jump in data usage. I am talking 16 Gb / day.
Using the Task Manager Resource Monitor I found that by far the biggest user was csssrv64.exe. This was even with Secure Shopping deactivated in Comodo.
I have uninstalled Secure Shopping and data usage has dropped from around 0.5 Gb/hour to under 100 Mb/ hour. I would expect even less on average: this was a 10-minute snapshot. Note: in fact is has 20 Mb over 22 mins, now. So 60 Mb per hour and dropping.
So I seem to have tamed data usage, but what could have caused this to start? With my data allowance this could have cost big $$; my allowance for my plan is about $2/Gb and “data packs” after that are $10/Gb.
