Windows 10 Privacy (update)From Curtis, and it's an addendum to my Windows 10 upgrade post:
There are several apps out there that will automate the disabling of the snooping services with Windows 10. I personally use Spybot Anti-Beacon. I've used Spybot for many years, removing malware and I trust the company enough to use this other app. It doesn't disable everything 100% but will do some things that manually disabling, doesn't do.
You can find the link here: Spybot Anti-Beacon.
I run this every couple of weeks as Microsoft has been re-enabling some of these items without letting anyone know, through Windows Updates.
