Yep, programmers and tech support for moneysoft do not comprehend that everyone isn't on an unlimited high speed account. They are, so everyone else must be. They act like anyone living where there isn't unlimited high speed access wouldn't be able to afford or understand a computer anyway. No point in providing support for the ignorant country bumpkins. I've been down the same path with support for computers and phones and it's no point in even trying to convince them we exist.

The best way I know to limit seemingly endless updates for Win10 is to change the default windoze metered service setting for my home wifi to ON.
GoTo: All Settings/Advanced Options/ and make sure Metered Connection is turned ON

There is another setting for downloads/uploads.
GoTo: All Settings/Update & Security/Advanced Options/Choose how updates are delivered/ On this page there are several choices. I leave this turned ON because we have several computers in the house. It's better if they can share updates. However I make sure the box is NOT checked for "Pcs on the internet".
