WUDO is Voodoo

WUDO is Voodoo

 

WUDO (Windows Update Delivery Optimization) is a feature in Windows 10 that is stealing your bandwidth.

Well, maybe not voodoo but it made a really cool title for this article.

In previous versions of Windows all updates came directly from Microsoft which is a lot of data being handled by a limited infrastructure.  This means updates were slower and more prone to glitches. 

The new WUDO feature in Windows 10 is designed to help users get software updates much faster by using your Internet bandwidth to distribute update files to other people’s computers.

 

The Voodoo:

 

The big no-no committed by Microsoft is the fact that they automatically have your computer set up to be used to distribute these updates to other computers. It is enabled, by default, without the knowledge of users.  In other words, they are hijacking your bandwidth if you download Windows 10 and leave it as is.

 

Microsoft said the feature, "helps people get updates and apps more quickly if they have limited or unreliable internet connection” and that it "doesn’t slow down your internet connection” because it uses a "limited portion” of idle upload bandwidth.


It seems pretty sneaky to me and I recommend shutting that feature off so that your computer isn’t used that way.

 

Turn off the Voodoo:


Here’s how to shut it off.

 

·     Go to Settingsin the Start menu

·     Search for Update & Security

·     Under Windows Update, open Advanced Options

·     Under Choose How Updates Are Installed, select Choose How Updates Are Delivered

·     Disable the button under Updated From More Than One Place

 

All done!
