    Clicked "customise settings" instead of "express" during installation and deselected everything. After the PC booted up, immediately disabled Cortana and deselected at Settings>Privacy. Modified registery to download and install updates only after my confirmation. Disabled Windows Defender and installed an AV I trust.
