Re: Disable CEIP?

"That being the case, the only way to squelch the traffic is to add custom routing rules (probably at the router rather than the PC, just to be sure) for any/all IP addressed associated with that address."

Or just create a firewall rule on the PC.

I think the reason he suggested "probably at the router rather than the PC, just to be sure" is that MS have, especially in this case (in fact this case alone would be enough) proven themselves not only to not be trustworthy with any data, but also to go to some lengths to bypass security or privacy measures people might actually try to put in place just to prevent this sort of rubbish.
