    Anyone have any comments on "Destroy Windows 10 Spying"?


    Hi,

    Just wondering if any other Windows 10 users have tried the "Destroy Windows 10 Spying" util?

    I downloaded the latest version (1.5 Build 342) and have given it a whirl on one of my systems, with no obvious negative impact - other than it disabled Windows Defender (it's one of the default settings, which seems a bit silly).

    I also set it to remove all metro apps, since I'll never use them, and have Classic Shell installed.

    Has anyone else tried this program and are there any potential pitfalls I should be aware of?

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    It can remove apps ? If it can i need to try it because in my user account i have tried everything to get rid of apps and nothing has worked, even followed "brinks" tutorial and went through all the steps.

    Hmm... I downloaded from here:

    Download Destroy Windows 10 Spying - MajorGeeks

    It says the latest build is 342... Is this right?

    I'm only asking, as it seems like this type of program would be the ideal candidate to deliver malware, as every man and his dog are trying to get rid of Windows 10 "spying"...

    The latest build is now 342. And no Virus or anything.

    Just to make sure, the metro app's are all the squares on the "start menu" right ?

    If you'll notice after the process completes, one of the lines says " Delete keylogger..."

    No comments here. But I'm not paranoid about MS receiving logistic data from me.
