    @Gary

    I would like the source for windows 7. I never see anything in the windows 7 sp1 eula that says they can do it. In the 10 eula it does. A lot of people are not using windows 10 because of this statement below. If Microsoft been doing this anyway with 7 sp1 & 8.1, people might as well upgrade to windows 10 or move to mac or Linux system.

    What source do you want. The one that says The NSA helped Develop Windows 7 or do you want a source to The Patriot Act?

    Hi there

    depends on the Granularity of the data.

    Google are interested at the moment on What SITES you visit rather than the keywords you use to Search or enter your query.

    Has anybody tried debugging their browser when you actually perform a Goole search. In any case if THEY are doing the SSL it stands to reason they have the decryption algorithms on their servers. Wouldn't be any point in receiving encrypted data if they can't decode it at their end.

    It's not intercepts from outside the Network that Google are interested in -it's just what you search for and what sites you visit.

    Cheers

    Gary,

    That is totally different the windows 10 privacy issue. It does raise some privacy concerns but from what I read it is to help improve less viruses, less spyware and less malware to get into business & consumer systems who users are not tech savvy. I don't think that working though if you look at how many people still get infected in the windows 7 forums.
