    So who has installed Windows 10. Well as of today over 67 million computer users have and why...because it's FREE. Well News Flash folks, it's costing you a lot because M$ is in business to make money. If they are going to give it away for free there must be something in it for them

    If you have installed W10 then you should check out this software www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10

    Free antispy tool for Windows 10

    O&O ShutUp10 means you have full control over which comfort functions under Windows 10 you wish to use, and you decide when the passing on of your data goes too far.

    Using a very simple interface, you decide how Windows 10 should respect your privacy by deciding which unwanted functions should be deactivated.

    O&O ShutUp10 is entirely free and does not have to be installed – it can be simply run directly and immediately on your PC. And it will not install or download retrospectively unwanted or unnecessary software, like so many other programs do these days

    I accentuate your attention on the fact this spying is not only Windows 10 problem now.
    So it's a reason to use one of these utilities on Win7, 8 systems too. As well as upgrade to Windows 10 all those Win7-8 PCs :))
