    Looking for a tool


    I am looking for a tool to download that does the following:

    Removes all of the data collecting/telemetry found here: [REPO] Windows 10 TELEMETRY REPOSITORY
    Removes all apps including the Store, Cortana, and Edge
    Removes OneDrive and SkyDrive including the SkyDrive in the Shell
    Removes QuickAccess
    Removes the default folders located under This PC
    Disables Defender and Firewall
    Makes it so I choose what updates to download and install

    Does such a thing exist?

    I opened it and already I do not like this one. It enables and makes a restore point.

    Well if something goes wrong. you can always revert it back, that's why its making a restore point.

    I do fully understand the concept of a restore point. However, assuming the program does what it should do on a clean install, there should be no issues. It would be better if it asked me instead of taking control of my computer to do something.

    Well, since the program creates a restore point by default, you can then choose to disable this function. That is your prerogative.

    I'm sure you can see how this is a sensible and necessary feature for typical end-user. Imho, any program that makes major changes to the functionality of Windows would be negligent not to include system restore activation as the default state upon initial startup. There would be so many more broken os's without it.

    Edit: Just realised. The full reasoning is contained within my sig!!

    why mess with third party system changes at this point in time. patience, the bugs on the new operating system are not completely gone yet.

    Well as long the program fulfills the purpose, isn't this okay. Just some little system restore doesn't hurt anything. Even windows update does it..

    These folks are all right Sightup, But any restore point made you can easily delete just by going to system protection menu choose your C-drive and remove all restore points. Takes about 1 min. But don't turn it off....at least I wouldn't.
