    Controlling Privacy in Windows 10, Could it be true?

    So I installed Windows 10 on to my system, but I have not hooked it up to the Internet. Call it paranoia, but I want to make sure Win10 does not go rogue on me before I let it go to the net.

    But then I found this program called O&O Shutup10 which seems to shut down a lot of the privacy items. I have not used it, maybe tomorrow I will have time to play with it, but has any one here heard of this program? And does it truly do what it says it can do?

    Just some poking around Win10 I found some settings, but they are in different areas. This program seems to put it all in one area to view. Just wondering.

    I'm sure there are programs that can do such but many I believe wouldn't use those types of programs simply because their level of paranoia isn't as high as those that have things to hide from . We live in a world nowadays there is no such thing as privacy, no matter what one tries to do . Thanks to the ways things are in the middle east, life as we know it ( PRIVACY ) is gone . Also, many don't care for illegal programs or what ever.

    Don't worry about your PC to much.. I'm sure you probably have a Smart Phone that knows more about you, then your PC would..

    @both - that is very true. I got to thinking, maybe what we perceive is our privacy is actually been lost for some time now. Your right, smart phones dead give away. Then look at Facebook, Google, Apple, Yahoo, etc.

    I did try out the program by the way and it was too much. Read up on a bug in which you can set the settings, but you cannot turn them back to the way it was so had to try and sure enough. So wipe out, then reinstall. I installed 10 and saw a light "ehh, the new world we live in"

    Been happy with 10 though.

    Thanks snOOker and Kyhi!
