    Why does W10 FreeCell leave behind Adware?????


    I upgraded from W7 to W10 last July.

    I am an avid fan of Freecell.

    However, after leaving the game, I run SuperAntiSpyware (SAS) and the report from that run will show
    anywhere from 2 to 70+ pieces of adware (see below).

    I know MS is now a big snoop (NSA anyone), but, leaving adware on my system (I am only speaking for me; I would
    hate to think this is happening to all who play Freecell) is outlandish!!

    Can anyone here on this forum confirm my finding and perhaps report it to MS so that they will STOP this nonsense!?!?

    Thanks for listening,

    Rudy
