Destroy Windows 10 Spying


Dreamer

Recommended Posts

Destroy Windows 10 Spying is a portable app that can block anonymous data being sent, remove apps that can��t be removed the standard way and more. I liked that it can remove some of the Windows default programs that can be removed under Apps & Features, an annoyance I immediately discovered since I prefer to ��slim�� down windows.

Some of the domains we know send anonymous information back to Microsoft include:

two things, first while i love that destroy windows spying allows us to kick M$ out of our personal business, because they don't give us the choices we should have, i am bothered by the fact that any of the controls on the program are not reversible. anything that can be done, can also be undone. and so i am wondering why there are not toggles for each and every thing in this program, to give the user power to determine what they like and don't like to use. this lack of choice is almost as bad as what M$ has done. the ultimate goal should be to give the end user total control to make whatever decision he/she wants; to have their own system truly be their own.

Hey all,

You need to disable Windows Updates altogether at this rate on any version. 

I'm not so sure if this is the right endorsement (security updates, obviously). If you absolutely must, then at least get the most important updates manually from another computer: http://download.wsusoffline.net (Or don't and have fun with the latest and greatest Ransomware)

Side note: I'm all cool with disabling Telemetry and blocking ad/tracking servers via hosts, but the demonization of every other Windows version (ME, Vista, 8 and now 10) by the press and stubborn users really annoys me.
