This app will disable the tracking services in Windows 10 as well as some registry tweaks to disable any other processes from tracking your activities,as well as some hidden ones.

Latest releases: https://github.com/10se1ucgo/DisableWinTracking/releases

Instructions
  1. Download run.exe below
  2. Right click on 'run.exe' and press "Run as Administrator"
  3. Choose any/all of the options you'd like
  4. Press "Go Private!"
  5. You can read the output at the bottom to see if it worked.
  6. That's it!
You can read the license at Info>About

RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR!
I cannot stress this enough, not running the program as an administrator will result in none of the tweaks being applied.

Changes since v1.4
  • No longer assumes C:\ is the system drive
  • Tooltips!
  • 2nd Telemetry key modification

Thank You exterminator
I did this manually and noticed that a side effect is that App notifications gets disabled with no way to re-enable it without reverting the changes.
Have you noticed weather or not this tool has the same effect on app notifications ?

PS: Thanks for the heads up gonzalo, I will scan it before messing with it.

I used it and Norton detected suspicious activity but if you guys read the suspicious activity is the hosts file being modified.... And I have no notifications issue.

@exterminator20 Thanks for the useful tool. :)
360 essential says is a troyan and it deleted instantly xD :eek:
@gonzalo Qihoo detects it with Heuristic signature (HEUR/QVM10.1.Malware.Gen). Most probably false positive detection. It is also some kind of hacking tool because it changes so call critical stuff in system (registry keys, services and so on). I re-analyzed file with VirusTotal and it was hit with 3 out of 55.

Regards,
Kardo

Edit: 360 TS detects it as a trojan. :D

Sorry shouldn't be using the word "feedback". What I meant was info sent by an app to MS stating a crash occurred while operating a app or some bugs that an app ran into or something else.

Hmm ...

People are of course free to do what they please.

I will bet though, that A LOT of the users who now disables telemetry, will be the very same people that complain in a year or two when they experience crashes or bugs and there are no solutions ready for them.

How do people expect Microsoft or anybody else to provide them with a smooth user experience, to fix bugs or improve code - if people are not willing to provide information about the incidents that are present ??

I have yet to meet a developer with the ability to simply just sense that you might have a issue on your local PC.

Does anyone have an idea exactly this tool does? Since I ran it I have not been able to connect to bing.com and reverting does not seem to fix this. I cannot find anything in windows firewall that is blocking any specific IP.
