    Windows 10 (2), Win 8.1 (1), Win 7 (1)

    I only use a local account on all my computers. This is what I get the first time I do a "File" > "Save as" in an Office program.

    Edit: I get the same message when I try to do a "Save as" in my text editor software (UltraEdit)

    I think MS needs to take it down a couple notches!

    Jeebus! The Internet is viral with users complaining about MS's 'Ad Campaign'!
    Maybe not a smart move.

    I have two desktops, (both dual boot) Three laptops, One tablet and a Windows Phone. I have never had any ads popup in File Explorer.

    So "Farcebook" and "Twatter" can be used for good.

    I haven't noticed any in my W10 IP (Pro) VMs.

    I haven't seen any in W10 Home either, but I only turn my laptop on for updates.

    I have not seen any adds (yet), but then again I'm only have 3/4 of Windows 10 Pro as Cortana is not available in my region (Denmark).

    MS has created a cottage industry to shut down MS telemetry and various information sharing. Looks like there will soon be a handful of a new class of programs dedicated to shutting down MS ads.

    In the 'old' days the prize was defeating Windows activation... now it's defeating adware...it's the ongoing MS vs the antagonists paradigm.. it's much the same really (just not pirating)... i.e. a change in monetization. Makes things interesting though.. Game on?
