    My windows 8 usage has used much more than normal


    Well, my computer uses a lot more usage than any of my friends on windows 7, or any other operating system. I have taken off a lot of the apps and that doesn't seem to be the problem :/ is there any way to fix this? If so please help, thanks.

    Welcome justin, Could you clarify your question by adding a tad bit more info, to describe the problem.
    There are many members in this forum that can help, but, they need to more clearly understand the problem.

    thanks

    I'm pretty sure he is low on free space.
    I could be wrong though.

    He said he removed apps, hence the deduction he needs more free space by getting rid of unwanted or unneeded things.

    Are you are referring to your browser cache, if so that is normal.

    I uninstalled ALL apps.

    Then took ownership of the Apps directory and deleted the thing. It is in the recycle bin where it belongs.

    If you are going to leave those things, be prepared for them to suck up bandwidth.
