    IN 10 days I have used up 90% of my internet time. No difference in what I do on the internet. Facebook, shop, gmail. that's about it. But such a difference since I purchased a new Hp with windows 10. Do items run that I am not aware of. Can I turn them off?

    go to settings > privacy >apps that can run in background and disable those you don't need
    Also, you can set your internet connection as metered to reduce data usage
    And finally, yes, some apps might be updating in background

    Windows 10 does have a spike in network usage, but it is not that significant.
    Use a network bandwidth monitor to check what is using up your resources.
    Probably it's a malware. Or Windows updates downloading the cumulative updates, drivers etc and the store updating the apps. On a brand new PC with version 1511 installed, these cumulative updates can take up around 650+MB.

    Is your windows update running? You can check which apps are running with help of a firewall(like Comodo, Zonealarm), check the monitoring tabs. Allow/deny apps whichever wants to access internet.

    I'm a little late coming to this, but here's another possibility. By default, the Win10 update uses your PC & bandwidth to seed the update to others!

    Go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Choose how updates are delivered. Toggle that off or select the local PCs option only.
