    I would imagine he is referring to the Windows Update? *Officially* there is no spywhere and so says Microsoft's privacy policy (although I think it says soemthing along the lines that MS will not sell your info... they didnt say anything about using it internally).

    True... not much can happen if you dont have an internet connection.
