    apps using lots of bandwith?

    i have recently bought a new laptop running on win 8.1.
    because our economy is tight at the moment we use a prepaid monthly internet connection. Previously while using my desktop pc ( running Vista)it was very rare to use up all of our 10gb monthly limit. But since starting to use my new laptop for surfing the rate of download and upload usage has dramaticaly increased. 11 days to use 10gb insteas of 30days.
    any one can help please?

    If you open up Task Manager and then go to the App History tab
    Then click the header marked Network to sort by this column
    Under options, select to show for all processes

    this will show what is using your bandwidth
