    spybot anti-beacon blocks W10 update?


    I decided to try "Spybot anti-beacon for Windows 10"
    http://www.thewindowsclub.com/spybot...for-windows-10
    which apparently prevents telemetry from Windows 10 and it seems to do just that.

    But I think it may also prevent Windows 10 updates too. .......
    I downloaded the anniversary update and tried to install it. The install process did the tests, all of which passed but after downloading, the install failed repeatedly with error code 0x80070057. I "think" that might be because without telemetry Microsoft may not know if this is a valid installation. But that is a guess. Does anyone know?

    FIX: Windows 10 Anniversary Update: Error 0x80070057

    Recommend downloading the iso file and doing it that way (step 4).

    Thank you for helping. What step 4? There are only 3 steps on that page.

    3 questions if I may
    1. Will this include the anniversary update? (My current W10 installation is running fine)
    2. Will it reverse all my customizations?
    3. What do I do once I download the iso file?
    Thank you again.

    I upgraded two Win10 PC's Pro and Home both running Spybot Anti-Beacon with telemetry disabled, no problem with either of them.

    Step 4 in the 1st one.

    3 questions if I may
    1. Will this include the anniversary update? (My current W10 installation is running fine)
    - thought you were trying to upgrade to this..
    2. Will it reverse all my customizations?
    The anniversary update will change a few settings, in particular reset all autoplay settings, turn it off, turn off system restore (as usual!), lost colour on inactive title bars if you've done that, you lose Classic peronalisation context menu if you added that from Brink's tutorial, may find one or two minor less common programs are broken or incompatible - some other experiences here:
    Solved Will I have to redo settings after Anniversary update? - Windows 10 Forums

    3. What do I do once I download the iso file?
    Burn it to a DVD and use that: mount it and use it; create a bootable USB and use that- whichever you prefer.

    If you have activation issues and you installed with a valid license or on a machine on which Win 10 had previously been installed or simply upgraded your existing Win 10 installation, you should be able to resolve that by calling MS in your region.

    You may want to reconsider using that program. Everything it does in terms of stopping "spying" can easily be done manually.
