    I have a laptop running on windows 8.1. when I connect it to my mifi (att unite) at home I notice it uses a lot of data at least a gb in 5 mins! I had a computer repair shop in my town look at it. They said it didn't have spyware or virus on it. They said it was a software malfunction and the ram was very slow. They wiped it and put new software on it. It worked great for a couple of a months now it is doing it again. I have no idea what's wrong with it! It is a dell inspiron 15z. I have had it for about 2 years.

    It might be downloading selected OS updates or OneDrive files for offline use.

    What does task manager show? http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...4-dddc2cd86087

    Do you have something that runs in the background or runs upon startup?
