Thread: Avoid Windows 10!

  1. Default Avoid Windows 10!

    They push it on us constantly, it's free because it isn't worth anything. It is full of spyware. Also, they send updates to win 7 and 8 making them do similar things.

    Go to control panel, programs and look for these updates:

    3022345
    3068708
    3080149
    3075249

    If you see any of those, delete them. It takes a couple minutes each and after you are done, restart the computer. These "updates" allow microsoft to spy on you much like win 10 does. And anything Microsoft collects, the govt will have its nose into, we all know that. If you don't want to be low hanging fruit for LE to pick when they have nothing better to do, delete these update. Also it's recommended to use a proxy, a vpn or tor and pgp.

    Wow! I just searched on these these and posted a couple of links that talk about them above. One discusses how to disable them.

    Any idea what those who have Windows 10 Home or Pro should do "even after all the CEIP/Cortana/Bing settings have been shut off"?

  4. Here is another bit of spyware. This one is relatively easy to disable and is not an update so it may not be automatically put in on you. It reports back to Microsoft about your habits, hardware etc.

    To un-join the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) in Windows 7 follow these steps:

    a. Open the Start Menu, then copy and paste Change Customer Experience Improvement Program in the search box and press Enter.

    b. To Un-join the Customer Experience Improvement Program select (dot) No, I don't want to participate in the program.

    c. Click on the Save Changes button.

    d. If prompted by UAC, then click on Yes (if administrator) or type in the administrator's password (if standard user).

    @bwaterson19 this did not work for me, it might on another version of win 10. Here is what I found that did work

    Use the Windows key + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command.
    Type gpedit.msc and click OK to open the Local Group Policy Editor.
    Browse the following path:

    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Internet Communication Management > Internet Communication settings

    On the right side, double-click the Turn off Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program policy.
