Windows 7: Destroy Windows 10 Spying 1.6

10 Mar 2017   #11

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Fellow in my computer club who built my computer says any Update with the word "Telemetry" in it is spyware. He gave me a list, but most of them are old updates from 2015 that he has already blocked in all his builds. The others we've blocked are the forced update to Win 10.

It's naive to think MS is spying on us only for records of program crashes.

I just got this computer, so I missed a lot of those updates. I don't get "Get Windows 10" notifications, but I'll pass GWX to other people.
