    How invasive are the recent retroactive monitoring updates affecting 7 and 8.1?

    Do you use any of these tools, Papusan?

    Luckily, I encrypt all of my email in Pig Latin.

    My old Windows 8 phone has been reading text messages and permitting voice response/dictation for years.

    I use to be able to voice search on the web on both my 8.1 and 10 phones without fully enabling Cortana. Now she wants dinner and a movie before she will do anything.

    I still think one of these automated programs is the solution, particularly if it monitors and keeps step with Windows Updates. I'll be reading reviews, but other's input would be welcome.

    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17107 for Fast Ring
    https://blogs.windows.com/windowsex...ew-build-17107-fast-ring/#HHw56jpMHFDVPFSS.97
    Hello Windows Insiders!

    Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17107 (RS4) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. There won’t be a new build this week for Windows Insiders who opted into Skip Ahead.

    What’s new in Build 17107
    Windows Update Improvements
    Keeping PCs Up-to-date: In an effort to prevent PCs from becoming out of date, we are introducing a change in behavior to Windows Update that is designed to be more proactive at keeping PCs updated. In RS4, now when Windows Update scans, downloads, and installs on a PC with AC power – it will prevent the PC from going to sleep when it is not in active use, for up to 2 hours when receiving an update in order to give Windows Update more opportunity to succeed. If you are not seeing this new behavior, let us know by sending in feedback via Feedback Hub.

    General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
    • We fixed an issue where Settings would crash when you tried to open Themes.
    • We fixed an issue where the Settings tile didn’t have a name if you pinned it to Start.
    • We’ve updated About Settings to include at a glance entries for the two new Windows Defender pillars (Account Protection and Device Security).
    • We fixed a typo in Storage Sense Settings.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in all dropdowns in Settings appearing blank until clicked.
    • We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing after having navigated to and left Sound Settings.
    • We fixed an issue where closing certain apps after using in-app search could result in them hanging on the splash screen the next time they were launched.
    • We fixed an issue where plugging in an external optical drive (DVD) will cause an Explorer.exe crash.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in the hamburger button in Windows Defender overlapping the home button.
    • We fixed an issue where certain games using Easy Anti Cheat could result in the system experiencing a bugcheck (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED).
    • We fixed an issue where we had observed seeing longer-than-normal delays during install at the 88% mark. Some delays were as long as 90 minutes before moving forward.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in the Windows Defender offline scan not working in recent builds.
    • Some Insiders may have noticed a new message when holding down the power button which says “Please release the power button. We just need a few more seconds to shut down”. This is an Insider-only feature thatthis support page for additional information on how to properly shutdown your PC.
    Known issues
    • Buttons on Game bar are not centered correctly.
    • Selecting a notification after taking a screenshot or game clip opens the Xbox app’s home screen instead of opening the screenshot or game clip.
    • Post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices have experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and may enter a reboot loop state. For affected PCs, turning off fast boot may bypass the issue. If not, it is necessary to create a bootable ISO on a USB drive, boot into recovery mode, and this this will allow bypass.
    • Tearing a PDF tab in Microsoft Edge will result in a bugcheck (GSOD).

    I'd say this is more of a ploy for M$ to spy on your email (need to give app permission) and use the information for targeted ads.

    Microsoft again forced upgrades on Win10 machines specifically set to block updates-Computerworld.com (MAR 12, 2018)
    For the third time in the past four months, Microsoft 'accidentally' upgraded Win10 1703 machines to version 1709 in spite of explicit, correctly applied, deferral settings. Gawrsh.

    When you read about Win10 Fall Creators Update’s rapid acceptance rate — how it’s been installed on more machines, faster, than any prior version of Win10 — keep the Gawrsh factor in mind. Three “accidental” upgrades in the past four month. Sure looks good on the version adoption graphs, eh?
