Title: How to shut up windows 10
Post by: HiFlyer on September 10, 2015, 06:02:41 pm
Some people have been installing windows 10, and then experiencing uncertainty after encountering the growing number of reports about that operating systems approach to user privacy. Some have retreated to windows 7 (with occasionally disastrous results as their OS becomes hopelessly corrupted for whatever reason)
For others who have asked me, I recommend an easier way of controlling possibly unwanted features. O@OShutup10 seems ideal because it's from a trusted and successful company, it's free; and it does what it says it does in an easy, 1-click manner.
It won't address all Win10 privacy issues, as some things can only be deactivated through direct registry manipulation, but it's a good start, and automatically creates restore points if you change your mind later.
Something to consider!
More control over your operating system
Adapt your security settings
Protect your privacy
Control location services
Control Windows Updates
Do not pass on your user data and diagnostics

O&O ShutUp10 means you have full control over which comfort functions under Windows 10 you wish to use, and you decide when the passing on of your data goes too far.

Using a very simple interface, you decide how Windows 10 should respect your privacy by deciding which unwanted functions should be deactivated.
O&O ShutUp10 is entirely free and does not have to be installed – it can be simply run directly and immediately on your PC. And it will not install or download retrospectively unwanted or unnecessary software, like so many other programs do these days!
