    @Mr. Fox @Papusan

    I just overclocked my internet by doing this tweak, it's been posted long back but just a reminder, it adds block rules to the Micro$h4ft telemetry. You need to restart after running the CMD file as admin. Remember to unblock the ZIP file before extracting it from Properties > Unblock (located at the bottom right)

    I am now surfing much faster with 0 lag when loading websites [​IMG]

    Totally agree. Applied that in my initial tweak set, then bounced a few minutes back to the last MRIMG and it was obvious!

    Thanks for the reminder; I probably ought to send the ZIP to few family members while I'm thinking about it...

    Hey @Phoenix (and anyone else too!)

    Have you added any additional telemetry blocking rules to your rules.ps1 file?

    Also:
    I know relatively little about network traffic control, and I still have lots of green lights for programs I don't think I need or want (Cast to Device, Feedback Hub, etc) in both Inbound and Outbound rules. Should I just go through these one-by-one? Do you know of a 'recommended keep vs. kill' list?

    Here's a good one for ya

    1) Control Panel

    2) Windows Firewall

    3) From the left pane, click on Advanced Settings

    4) For both inbound and outbound rules, look for all the entries pertaining to Cortana and Smart Screen and block each one of them.

    Note: Sometimes when you give them a block rule, the rule goes inactive, so go back to the rule and check the box which says ENABLED again.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I noticed some tweaks to Win10 just don't seem to stick. It's as if there's one or two rogue Win-coders that are pretty proud and protective of their favorite little switch. They might know it's crap, but they worked on it so long it just has to survive!

    Applying this caused W10 to go into Skynet mode and it was in total control, the moment I disable WU, BITS, DO etc.. and after hitting refresh, W10 turned them ON right in front of my eyes.
    My internet speed was same.

    Hahaa. I doubt it. Maybe Win 10 is broken, just ran sfc /scannow and its acting normal for now. I downloaded FCU ISO just in case W10 acts like skynet and use scare tactics and even threaten Win 10 CU using FCU ISO. Maybe AI section in W10 doesn't want FCU.
