Re: Windows 7 Telemetry was avoidable. But not for much longer.

Spent months micro managing manual updates to avoiding this stuff during Win10 rollout (did so successfully, we had none of the nags) only to find it installed by the second November cumulative update. We knew this was coming, just couldn't find that info regarding November Update.

If you set the 4 diagnostic services to manual does that disable this? Seems to boot OK without them starting. We can roll back (Can check for sure then), but fair amount of work.

I've completely had enough of Microsoft.

The UK's ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) is a complete waste of space, where is the complicit agreement to this?
