For the first time, I checked my data usage (past 30 days) on my Windows laptop and I was surprised to see this

I'm using an antivirus called K7 Total Security, and I'm aware that it updates very frequently but 27 GB a month seems like overkill to me. Is it normal for an antivirus to consume so much data?

EDIT: I posted a question on their forum and they replied.

    Online analysis perhaps (e.g. uploading files to check signatures)? The best answer is going to come directly from the developer [K7 Total Security] - have you reached out to them?

  • Also make sure there is only one K2TWP.exe on your system.

  • Also ask the Software support people about this.

  • Saw a similar question on their forum which was posted 3 yrs back but a quantitative solution hasn't been posted yet. I've added a post on their wall.
