    ADD THIS TO YOUR LIST

    Stop Windows 10's keylogger from monitoring what you type, ink, and say

    The 'keylogger' that's built into Windows 10 has gained something of a bad reputation -- but it's really a bit of a misnomer. Yes, there is a component that -- technically speaking -- tracks what you input using the keyboard, screen, mouse, voice, and stylus... but it's a bit more complicated than that. It is not really a keylogger in the sense that the malware term usually implies.

    Yeah,really? Most everything I've seen about how M$ is becoming the Big Brother has come from the Tinfoil Hat Brigade and really is a bunch of ca-ca.
    I have my Win7 tweaked and blocking anything in or out so, I'll just wait until the final verdict is in, maybe when M$ releases Redstone in 2016, then I may or may not install 10...

    Microsoft Fanbois are all atwitter about Win10 hitting +5% market share so soon. To me it says more about how bad Windows 8 is than how good Win10 is.

    THIS JUST CAME IN

    Spybot Anti-Beacon quickly closes Windows 10 privacy holes

    Spybot developer Safer Networking has released Spybot Anti-Beacon, a portable free tool which makes it easy to disable a host of Windows 10 tracking technologies.


    Just launching the program displays the current status of 10 "problem" areas: Telemetry Hosts/ Services/ Group Policy, Consumer Experience Improvement Program Group Policy/ Scheduled Tasks, Application Impact Telemetry, Steps Recorder, WiFi Sense, "Apps use advertising ID" and P2P Windows Updates.

    Disabling everything is as simple as hitting the "Immunize" button, and if that gets you into trouble then an "Undo" option restores your original settings.

    Unfortunately, unlike O&O's ShutUp10, 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 is an extremely simple way to turn off Windows 10's core telemetry settings, and if you’re an expert and know exactly what you’re doing, that just might be good enough.


    But if you'd like to have more control, and occasionally need reminding of what these settings actually do, O&O ShutUp10 remains the best privacy-maintaining choice.

    don't need that link in every post. also editing your links to increase the font size from 1 to 3 so people can see what that link is about.

    Sorry but I have little faith in Spybot, they have been on the very bottom of the malware removal barrel for about 10 years and I really don't think they can make a turn around over night. Some of their software has caused more problems than it's worth, which is zero, zip, nada...... it's free.

    had a new twist yesterday.threw in another hdd and tried cloning win10 to it with acronis and no go.it booted and stopped at the desk top with a critical error.start button not working ms will try to fix it on reboot,but wont reboot.did the same clone with macrium and not a problem.black viper already has a list of service tweaks which worked for me as well.looks like "customizing" this os system isnt gonna be all that hard.cant remember the last os that had this many tweaks this fast.lol

    You have a ways to go, yet!
    You do know that Win 10 Threshold 2 has been pushed back....
    Win10 TH2 will be released in November and not October as expected.

    Win10 is a perpetually upgraded OS and TH2 is being followed by Redstone in 2016.

    I will wait for Redstone and maybe not so buggy, if I decide on installing it.... Be not the first :rolleyes:
