I'm using a mobile broadband connection, so I'm very concerned about my data allowance. I don't mind genuine updates, but I don't want to pay for data just to confirm I'm still connected.
On avast 6 I've recently noticed my data usage is always at least 10MB per hour, and Netlimiter2 reports that as all being due to Avast Service. As far as I can see, this may be due to Avast scanning my use of Gmail usng Chrome? Do I need to turn off WebRep, etc?
I hope these "Cloud Services" aren't going to make this worse. Mobile data can cost as much as £2 for 25MB each day, and that's in the UK, not abroad. Mobile data on a slow connection could make the computer almost unusable if un-necesary data connections are being used.
