Windows 7: Windows "is calling home"

Windows "is calling home"

I'm well aware of how to secure Windows from external threats, but i'm wondering how i can secure my system from the system itself. Windows and related software is constantly giving away info about what's on my computer, what i'm doing and my hardware/software etc. How can i turn of these things? I'm having a project to see how stealthy and anonymous i can get my computer to be. Any input?

The most basic stealth is hiding your IP from the net. You could use a basic IP Hider. However, there are many other ways they could access your information.

Turn off CEIP. There, you're done.
