I have windows Seven ultimate 64 bits

When windows is downloading its updates it kills my bandwidth.

Hi

It can Not be done by the OS. There is a 3rd party software that can help in controlling Bandwidth use, but I do not know if it can control Updates traffic (http://www.netlimiter.com/betas.ph p ).

Otherwise "play" with the time of the Update.
