Am I the only one to have blocked all W10-related stuff with the group policy? I see none of those popups. I'm quite happy with 7.

I used to have ZoneAlarm years back but then something happened to them, I don't recall what and frankly I thought the company was dead long since. I'm using ESET for years and I've never had a...
