I cannot vouch for this software but it centralizes all privacy settings. Use at your own risk.

Looks easy and simple to use, however without testing it I cannot say. A quick look at the options it offers tells me that it it'll pretty much play with values in the GPOs and Registry, mostly the GPOs though.

Also that software name...

What is ironic, after seeing the German page, the installer uses Open Candy, a PUP. Just make sure you opt out of any offered programs.

I installed it, ripped out the stupid PUP and it seems to work well. Someone that is more of a tech should test it and see if it does what is says! What was Microsoft thinking making 10 a giant spy?

Sure doesn't take long does it.

Kind of funny that Defender sees it as Malware and deletes it.

LOL or just try this:  unplug or disable your ability to surf by turning off Wi-fi or unplugging your Ethernet, and then right click on taskbar, Properties, look at the bottom where it has the HELP on how to customize the taskbar -- YOU GET NOTHING.  Click all day, nothing happens.

 

But the minute you plug in that Ethernet or turn your Wi-Fi back on, and click the same thing, you get... BING!

 

So now you can't get help in Windows, offline.

 

Too many gotchas.  I'm done.  No more.  Can't take all this.  Bye for now, gonna go smash something and then use 1John1:9.

The detections are for OpenCandy, that's why.
