    Thanks for the suggestions. So a hardware firewall using another system wouldn't be the best way?

    Maybe - but personally I don't know much about that. I will PM you a guide that I used to set up windows but the more of it you apply the more likely that windows cumulative updates will fail.

    I don't know what Firewall you use but if you are brave enough to try Comodo Free Firewall (which needs some attention on setup and configuration) you can leave it on "Custom Ruleset" and it will alert on every connection with options to allow or deny along with "Remember my choice" so you can create rules for safe applications and create blocking rules for the rest.

    If you are really paranoid you can remap routing table:

    That would block all MS servers as per this other forum post:

    Massive Spy Ring Uncovered? 329 Injections into "Persistent Routes" Whats that about? | Wilders Security Forums

    But it will likely break Bing, Cortana and maybe some other stuff. I used persistent routes on Windows 7 but have not tried on Windows 10.

    See Post #27 onwards here:

    Static Routes - Create or Remove - Page 3 - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Anyway if you run a logging tool you can weed out anything that's connecting when you don't want it to.

    The problem is that IP addresses constantly change. Even if you find a full list today, there's no guarantee there won't be more tomorrow.

    Anyway the thing is that you cannot block some of this stuff via Hosts file.

    I use Netstat logging and nothing Microsoft ever shows up unless I run Sledgehammer (third party windows update tool)

    Just because they haven't, doesn't mean they can't.

    Well they haven't changed for years. So how would you block?
