New Windows 10 privacy controls: Just a little snooping – or the max

Face it. You will have those that will whine that even turning all this stuff off will still mean too much data for Microsoft.

One poster [elsewhere] claimed that Microsoft makes millions a year by selling your data - which would be illegal to do and the poster had nothing to back up the claim except his/her conspiracy theories.

A reminder that Windows 7 has telemetry features. I'm sure some didn't know that....

So instead of whining, grab some of the tools out there from Spybot and O&O and disable what you can and use a local account.
