    Windows 10 makes intrusive changes via updates!

    I've been using Windows 10 for about a week now. There's a lot of things that I disabled or uninstalled right away from the moment I fresh install this OS (defender, useless preinstalled stuffs, privacy options, whatnot). What gets under my skin is, when the new updates applied to my system, all those crap reverted to default! defender on, privacy settings to default, useless software.

    Is there a way to prevent this from happening in the future? It's a solid OS without this crap after all!

    Are you talking about updates to the existing build or upgrades to a new build?

    I have never seen that before. Only time would be if you are in the Insider program and you are using the ISO's. Then it would change your settings.
