Blocking Windows telemetry is not just an option. It is a big thing.
That would be perfectCan you add code to have it kill Cortana also? Thanks for sharing.
Killing off Cortana is easy, but it is too entwined into the system, so the consequences might be severe.Can you add code to have it kill Cortana also?

I disabled it, it works fine for me..It would be nice, if it would detect the current settings, even for version 1.0, it is a basic feature, easily done.
For the record, people, who will disable "Radio Management Service", will be unable to find/connect to WiFi.
Other WiFi? i dont know man I use WiFi usb adapter, my laptop in other room i'm lazy to bring it, maybe i will try it later...
An alternative [but not for the faint of heart] would be to consider a Windows 7 solution by abbodi1406 on MyDigitalLife ForumsBlocking Windows telemetry is not just an option. It is a big thing.
I think the software is more of hardening Windows security rather than its privacy
For privacy you can look to freeware like O&O Shut Up 10
O&O ShutUp10: download free antispy tool for Windows 10
or follow the below to improve your privacy

Thanks, I will give it a look when I get home. For now I setup a VPN and Secured Portal to the server. This is more secure, so maybe it's a good think RDP was trashed on it anyway. But I still want to putz around getting RDP to work.@Slyguy
What tweaks did you apply? Only the default ones or all of them?
Only these two tweaks should be related to RDP:
Turn Off Remote Desktop Connection to This PC (unchecked by default)
Turn Off Remote Desktop Services (unchecked by default)
1) Unselect all tweaks
2) Then check\select only the following tweaks:
Turn Off Remote Desktop Connection to This PC
Turn Off Windows Remote Assistance
Turn Off Helper IP (IPv6) Service
Turn Off TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper Service
Turn Off WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service
Turn Off Radio Management Service
Turn Off Remote Desktop Services
Block Inbound Connections
3) Now click on "Restore Selected"
Let me know if that works.
In case it doesn't, try to select also all Windows Firewall rules and click "Restore Selected" and reboot.
