I choose not to participate in the Windows 7 MS sponsored Customer Experience Improvement Program. Interestingly I found a number of Tasks scheduled in Task Manger running on a regular scheduled interval even though it was stated that it was dependent on participation in the program. I've disabled them but I have to wonder why they were scheduled and running.

For me, restoring to a previous image is what I do after trying some problem solving and have found no solution. I do want to know the cause of any problem that comes up on my system as I may be able to prevent it from happening in the future. I was not responding to post #7. Don't know why you thought I was.

You could be right. I've not read the W7 terms lately. The update that was pulled was optional. Maybe by accepting optional updates, you agree to the update.

Fortunately, I don't have to concern myself with the W7 agreement. I don't own any computers that run Microsoft operating systems.

My bad. You are correct. You quoted nothing, so I should have taken your post as generic.

If you read the MS OEM T's & C's for Windows 7 carefully, they allow MS to do pretty much what they like (as they always have)

specifically...
Quote:
This agreement only gives you some rights to use the features included in the software edition you licensed. The manufacturer or installer and Microsoft reserve all other rights.
Quote:
Windows Update. To enable the proper functioning of the Windows Update service in the software (if you use it), updates or downloads to the Windows Update service will be required from time to time and downloaded and installed without further notice to you.
Quote:
The software will from time to time perform a validation check of the software. The check may be initiated by the software or Microsoft. To enable the activation function and validation checks, the software may from time to time require updates or additional downloads of the validation, licensing or activation functions of the software.

...and here's one I hadn't noticed before...
Quote:
You may only obtain updates or upgrades for the software from Microsoft or authorized sources. For more information on obtaining updates from authorized sources see go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Linkid=104612.
- I suspect that has changed in Windows 10!

"When you click a EULA’s “I Accept” button, what exactly are you accepting? That’s the source of considerable debate among people who get paid to fret over such legal questions.

Microsoft’s current EULAs run to more than a dozen pages. Most lawyers also concur that the Windows EULA amounts to a “contract of adhesion” — a boilerplate contract over which a consumer has no sway. Take it or leave it.

There’s nothing illegal or immoral about boilerplate contracts. However, courts in most countries don’t consider such agreements to be as binding as contracts in which both sides are on an equal footing."

Source: The EULA you click may not be the one in effect

To stay on topic (this thread) ... I can fully appreciate that MS has the right to maintain and update the OS as it determines appropriate, however 'the Client' with a W7 license can participate in the process as MS provided options. Clients who are not too computer savvy stick with the default setting and all maintenance is auto applied, however Clients who chose to participate in the process require some brief details to do so. Without details there is no criteria on which to decide. KB3083324 was made available without info and its sudden disappearance caused a degree of concern. Was it problematic? That is all.

Most supplementary EULAs are very specific about their terms - if you choose not to red them, then you really have no right to complain about them. None are as complex as the Windows Ts&Cs - but you have to read them knowing the background of the Windows ones to make any real judgement on them.

They ALL extend MS's reach - or they wouldn't be needed in the first place.

At least it's not like the iTunes one I saw today - which changes every time you update iTunes! I'm just glad I don't have it installed on my machines.

I'm simple so keep this in mind.

Does M/S want to look at things in our computers to make things work better, I believe so.
Does M/S want to look at things in our computers to make judgements on possible advertisement to offer. I
believe so.
Does M/S want to look at things in our computers so they can make suggestion on what M/S apps you might want to use. I believe so.

Microsoft wants to do a lot of things and to my reading of the EULA they can just about do what ever they want to. We do not buy the Windows operating system. We pay for the right to use the operating system under the terms of the EULA.
I'm not saying the terms are good or bad; they are what they are.

What Microsoft isn't saying, they are trying to slow down counterfeiting of their products. So the sneak and peak will help them do that. They have always done a little sneak and peak looking for proper authentication of their products. They just want to do a better job of it.
I think many companies will start doing more of this sneak and peak to find and stop as much counterfeiting as possible of their products.
The movie and music industry will probable be doing some more things to try and slow down counterfeiting.
It will end up making us legal users of the movies and music jump through more hoops to prove we are legal users.
Did you ever wonder why many people in some countries run a $300.00 Ultimate on a $200.00 dollar laptop to play a free game. In my opinion that is what Microsoft is trying to stop. Come on folks 2 and 2 should still add up to 4.

Counterfeiting cost companies Billion of dollars every year. I don't blame the companies, I blame the counterfeiters and those who get and use counterfeit products. In my opinion they are the ones causing so many of the problems that the rest of us have to go through just to buy and use many products in a legal fashion.

I predict that it won't be long and their will be another legal problem in the E.U. courts over Microsofts EULA.

As always these are my thoughts and prediction. So please don't blame anybody but me for them.

...and I just had to try and read the Apple AppStore Ts&Cs - all 74 pages of it ! (OK _ I gave up after the first one, but as I'm not intending to keep the phone for more than a week they gantry getting anything sensible out of it if they like!)
