After some great support and info from members on here regarding my Home vista setup. 

It finally bit the dust after the power one button stopped working and I discovered that after trying to fix it the red button on the back just makes it go bang with a blue flash!!! :hysterical:

 

We live and learn. :nono:

 

Anyhow I now have a new (secondhand (no disk) Win 10)

 

I need to stop all spying from windows 10  and I know that there are some good and bad programmes out there ( youtube ) but they are dated.

I was going to use SPYBOT ANTI-BEACON but then found some updated info and was persuaded into DESTROY WIN 10 SPYING.

 

As you all have so much knowledge more than me. What would be the best programme to simply solve this problem. (system back up will obviously be needed)

 

I look forward to your advise. ( I know this must have been asked before but I  just could not find the link, sorry?) 

 

Kind regards.

Until others pipe in....have a look at this YouTube video by a former senior [15 years] Microsoft software developer.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kGMCfb2xw


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

Thanks. SAW101.

 

I'm new to this comp stuff and windows 10.

 

That is exactly the same vid I just watched (thank you)  and have now downloaded it.

 

There are some differences as I would have liked the "renew every day on startup option" but  I can't find that. It just seems to do its own thing.

 

That is a good start. I'll just have to see what happens tomorrow :thumbsup:

and let you know.

Do you actually believe MS spies on you when you are using Windows 10?  Just food for thought:  If MS did spy don't you think there would be a ton of lawsuits, and congressional investigations?  Don't install programs with bogus claims of stopping the spying for they will do more harm than good by preventing needed communication.

That's the thing. It's optional so no lawsuits when they force them upon you and Microsoft has them set to on. Take a look at your privacy settings. :)

I tell you what. I am a technologically up-to-date guy with no foundation in conspiracy theories. I feel that the way my OS connects with the Cloud, and the MS Servers is wonderful. I do not mess with the communication settings, installing using Express settings, and I observe with a mischievous grin on my face as I observe others try to block updates, and other communications, then their whole Windows 10 is BRICKED. My Windows 10 install is absolutely wonderful, and I have no issues, and MS has not stolen a thing or spied on me. So, take off your tin-foil hat, and live in reality. The cloud is the new reality, and you will not be able to get away from it.

Why the options then? Why don't they just make it a permanent, unchangeable part of the platform.

 

I must agree that Windows 10 is a wonderful platform. I just did not like the way they tried to force it upon you by some very sneaky means.

Why do you say sneaky? The options are right out there in the open when you install Windows, and there is a whole category labeled Privacy in Settings.

If you set the optional privacy settings to 'off' and then get a update they revert back to 'on' without a warning.

All upgrades were users' choices. It was very simple to avoid the upgrade unless you either couldn't read or couldn't be bothered. Most people would rather blame their own mistakes on others. It is very sad.

My new system came with windows 10 already installed.

That does not justify changing your settings without warning with a new update though.

Thanks. FreeBooter.

 

I presume the spybot anti-beacon software will do the same as it will disable any known tracking (telemetry) issues present included by Microsoft in the operating system.

With enough knowledge, and experience I hope you guys will remove the tin foil hats, and stop worrying about it.  All is good.  MS is one of the world's most ethical companies. Click Here for Documentation.
