Yep I suppose you are right mate just I was shocked when I saw quotes from the EULA on that Leo Notenboom's newsletter discussion/ debate a while ago and some of it was pretty damning.
But I am sort of coming round to think well if I worry about that too much then I had better start worrying about doing anything on the net anyway eh? As you know probably better than me there are many ways of getting at ones info / data by hacking or by whatever method.
So yes I shall follow your advice although I still think Microsoft are being a tad heavy handed if they are peeking at ones data, and I thought it a little sneaky by offering an update that to all intents and purposes looked like any other (KB3035533).
Still I have a nice fresh install now and have avoided that one and have spent putting back all my programs including your top tutorial on the BSOD stuff
so I shall be with 7 until it gets no more support and then maybe try Linux as the other little irritant is that 10 isn't so simple to navigate as 7.
I just feel sorry for the admin and others who have put in a lot of work into the 10 forum it must be pretty disheartening to hear so much criticism.
Still have taken up enough of your time and it is nearly time to go to work
