I have an Acer Aspire E5-521 Windows 8.1Pro 64bit laptop.
Today I found mention of a user behaviour tracking framework in the recovery drive and i'm wondering if this is normal?

Cant find anything online about this framework except mention of code to monitor web based user behaviour and/or warnings that my android or iphone might be hacked.

I am just wondering if this is a normal part of the recovery framework and if not how i might be able to delete or block it.

Thanks Chris

Hi drcrpsych :)

Where did you see a such mention? From a pop-up, your Antivirus, online, an email, ...?
