After upgrading to Windows 8, im facing a very slow download speed. My router and the NIC is working fine because on the same PC I also have Linux. In Linux, everything works fine.
When checking through the task manager, it shows that the system use the full bandwidth 1Mbps even without a download. The process menu doesn't show whats taking much bandwidth. The bitdefender's firewall also shows network activity.
Is there any hidden apps downloading? How to fix this?

None Just formatted the system!
I have removed the finance tile and the news tiles

How do you turn the updates off? Simply removing the tiles from start, will this work?
The next thing if it still were slow- I would probably do a full Windows update (it is possible the system may be auto-updating in the background) ...

+1 on this, I had the exact same thing
When I installed Windows 8 it took forever for Windows Update to finish running in the background. It has a lot of updates. I thought something was wrong with my install for a bit, things were so slow.
