PrivateWin10 is an advanced privacy tool for Windows. It provides a simple and comprehensive UI for tweaking privacy settings, as well as options to block system access to files and registry keys in order to enforce privacy whenever Windows does not provide a satisfying setting for that.

To solve privacy issues with other software the tool includes a powerful custom firewall frontend for the Windows built in firewall.

Is anyone currently using this with success? I'd like to hear about it. Also, I see a number of English typographical errors and poor use of capital lettering in the user interface. It might not affect how it works but it affects my perception of how it works. The dev has acknowledged this in his Wilders thread but why he hasn't cleaned up in his published versions is a mystery to me. Perhaps many would volunteer to do this for him.
