All you have to do is connect the phone to wi-fi as usual and then connect the USB cable and do a USB tether. Your computer should detect a new hardware - a "USB ethernet" or similar, you may need to install drivers for that, ymmv. Then it behaves just like any other ...

Assuming it's an app doing that (which is not unlikely), you'd first need to identify which app that might be. Uninstalling all of them would be a bit hard, so let's try a different approach – and narrow down the candidates.

Do you have root ? If yes you can download AFWall+ is an excellent open source firewall that let you control which apps can connect to wifi and 3g. If you don't have root and don't want to do then search on google play for similar non root firewalls but i'm not sure you can do that without root.
