A few days ago I went to change my search engine I use to a different one in IE 11 and found I no longer have that option, other options yes but not that option.
So I decided to check all of my internet settings and most of them had been changed as well.
Normally I do not allow 3rd party cookies, tracking cookies or even allow tracking at all, allow web pages to cache and all these things are normally set to be cleared when I close the browser. All had been changed to what Microsoft wants.
There was so much saved in the cache that windows increased the cache size while I was looking to 1024MB from the 250 I normally set it at.
Now I can't blame this on the last windows update because it happened before the update, just.
To reset my settings changes required a reboot and while rebooting for that apparently the latest update did finish installing. I say this for the extra ordinary amount of time it took to complete the reboot.
Even on here a reboot only takes a couple minutes to complete. This time it took almost 10 minutes.
With repeated messages not to turn off my computer. These I useually only see for a updates reboot.
Ok rant over back to checking what all else may have been changed while I was not paying attention.
You know I would not mind all of microsofts telemetry and data collection if they paid me for it instead of everybody else. After all it is my data and my browseing habits.
