it isn't right, because it is redundant to use all 3 :

 

Spybot hardly keeping up with Win10 changes; i never tried DoNotSpy; however i personally uses O&Oshutup10.  works well enough.

Thank you Umbrapolaris,

 

Excuse me I am a beginner.

 

I was thinking maybe one of them implement faster some new blocking elements, or some new features which could help, or even some of them already have some others blocking elements then others, so they complete each other, for a more intensive protection.

 

Could they even have conflicts one with each other?

 

Tell me please, If they could not "interfere" one with each other in a bad way, could they do something wrong to the functionality of the system or other programs, more than they will use more hardware resources?

 

 

Best wishes.

Spybot Anti-Beacon

Spybot Anti-Beacon is a standalone tool which was designed to block and stop the various tracking (telemetry) issues present in Windows 10. It has since been modified to block similar tracking functionality in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.


While Spybot Anti-Beacon is simple, free and easy to use...these are the drawbacks (limitations) provided by various reviews of the product.

Spybot Anti-Beacon is very easy to use, but provides no explanation of what it's doing, and doesn't allow you to disable/ enable most settings individually. For experts only.

Spybot Anti-Beacon Review by PC Advisor

Unfortunately...there's no detail on what you're disabling, and no way to toggle individual settings: it's strictly all or nothing. The only detailed control you get is under the "Optional" tab, where you’re able to tweak any or all of four features: Web Search Group Policy, Cortana Group Policy, OneDrive Service and Remote Registry Service.

Spybot Anti-Beacon Review by Betanews

The tool unfortunately does not give you the option to select the feature/s that you may want to disable.

Spybot Anti-Beacon Review by the WindowsClub

...there is still room for improvement to meet the users' requirements. At the moment, there are competitor applications that do more. For instance, it would be great to have the application disable the access of apps to wireless connections, block localization access and services, disable the automatic Windows updates or the feedback reminders.

Thank you quietman7,

 

Tell me please, which one do you consider is more effective, from the beyond post.

I do not use Windows 10 so I have no first hand experience on which to base a recommendation.

O&O shutup10 is my favorite, a simple executable that must be run on admin account (for obvious reasons) ; every options is explained so you know what you are blocking, and if you still unsure you have recommended settings.

 

the soft is updated quite quickly if new elements are introduced in Win10.
