Today was first time I've heard of this malware internet data eating monster I pay for data in packages and past few days I have used 13gb and I was stumped and phoning my carrier. We thought it was because I had wifi assist on. Today I turned that off and in 3hours still lost 3gb data. It has to be this data eating program. Damn you windows!!! People I've just finished doing lots of reading on this and I say get rid of it and use a different program to update drivers I know I am

Ahhhh!!! I just tried to remove this from my computer and my computer completely froze I've got no way to reboot it. Task manager shows there are still programs running on computer so it must be virus. All I can do is open task manager I can't end any tasks or restart or anything. If anyone has any ideas please help and I'll post if I can solve this
