Stop Microsoft Windows 10 Spying & Forced Application Installs. How to Take Back Control of Your PC.
After installing the Windows Anniversary Update for Windows 10 it would seem we picked up a lot more than we bargained for. There is a feature now that allows Microsoft to quietly install popular games and apps from the Microsoft Store without your consent or knowledge, eating up your bandwidth and hard drive space and potentially putting you at risk. I am calling Microsoft out in this video for this bad practice and also telling you how to disable it so it won't continue to happen. I also tell you how to fortify your Windows 10 to prevent telemetry and data gathering moving forward by Microsoft. ▼ Original Stop Windows 10 Spying Video ▼ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kGMCfb2xw ▼ Download Destroy Windows 10 Spying Utility ▼ http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/destroy_windows_10_spying.html * WARNING - some people are reporting Windows defender disappearing after running this tool.

But the vast majority of people that have contacted me so far have found multiple things installed. It's possible that some usage pattern triggers the installation of these items or potentially only if you don't have a metered internet connection. Also, if you're outside the USA you may not see this because MS is careful of antitrust stuff after the IE monopoly lawsuits! Q) What apps have been confirmed to be installed without permission so far? A) Amazon, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Netflix, Snapfish, TripAdvisor Hotels Flights Restaurants, Farmvill, Pixart, Asphalt 8: Airborne... If you have one not on this list please leave in comments
