    Yea... Very nice, indeed. Thanks Etherm... +reps... Well done.

    Although it may be a simple task....
    I'm simply terrible at PC/Laptop O.S. maintenance. (other that leaving the Auto Updates - ON)
    Especially when there's no official doc. in the hidden file zone, etc..

    A quick but complete, "step by step for dummies" would help me and possibly others out here.

    Once the dirty descriptor
    is in operation, Can I assume it is easily updated by adding in the latest
    KB type threat of concern and removed as desired?



    Yes Etherm... Speaking for myself... Please update as needed with a brief relevant description to the problem update.
    On my end, I'll do what it takes, learning how to add in the ongoing problem update myself.... Hopefully sooner then later.

    And again,
    Many thanks to you

    "Privacy -If the enforcement policies were tough, however, they have nothing on the privacy violations Microsoft requests in the Windows 10 EULA. A notable section reads:

    “We will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary.”

    Needless to say “necessary” is a crucial qualifier and this should mean Microsoft won’t violate your privacy for no reason, but that all comes down to trust – and there’s not a great deal of that going around in a post-Snowden world."

    Until that "bug" is "fixed", Windows 10 is unusable.

    Correction:

    Until that "bugging" is "removed", Windows 10 is unusable.

    That's great to hear, Awhispersecho.
    I'm running W 7 Ultimate 32bit. Does it matter if the O.S. is 32bit?

    Agree....
    At the same time., Any court is a theater to the one that proves an exception or exposes misplaced precedence of "trust," or "good faith..."
    Usually.., Directly proportional to the wing of paid lawfirms, under the wing of MS's Billions $$.$$$.$$$.$$$, in this case.

    Nothing like confirmation to the positive. Maybe some peace will result... For awhile, anyway.
    It must feel good Matrix, Ethrem, and all the others contributors.... Three cheers!!!

    Question for you: How long should it take?
    I ran it and it was about 2 minutes [maybe less].
    I'm 8.1 Pro

    Depends on how many updates it actually finds that it can uninstall from the list. In my case, it was about 1.5 or 1 minute since I only had update that slipped through my defence wall :D
