    Windows 10 users should check the Telemetry Re: What Fresh Hell Is...


    Windows 10 users should check the Telemetry Re: What Fresh Hell Is This Re: MS Version 1709??
    @lehnerus2000 pointed me to this article "Report: Forced Windows 10 version 1709 upgrades that bypass Windows Update"

    https://www.ghacks.net/2018/03/08/re...indows-update/

    in my post called What Fresh Hell Is This Re: MS Version 1709??

    What Fresh Hell Is This Re: MS Version 1709??

    In the Ghacks article it says among other things:


    1. Tap on the Windows-key, type regedit.exe, and hit the Enter-key. This opens the Windows Registry Editor.
    2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection
    3. Check the AllowTelemetry value. If Data is set to 0, the Diagnostic Data level is set to Security.

    When I do that I see this:

    I do not see " the AllowTelemetry value." Anyone have any ideas? TIA
