‘NEVER10’ Tool Stops Accidental Windows 10 Upgrades

Never10 is an utility that runs on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 and disables Windows from automatically upgrading to Microsoft’s latest operating system. This utility may also be used to easily re-enable Windows operating system automatic upgrading, but according to its creator – Steve Gibson“The primary reason for using this is to disable Windows’ pestering insistence upon upgrading Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10.”

Over 200 000 000 downloads of Windows 10 has been made since its launch last summer, according to PCMag.

#COMPUTERS: So Can You Turn Off The Tracking In #Windows10

Do you remember the buzz right after Microsoft has released their newest OS? It was a lot about tracking of online activities and even permissions for the OS to disable pirated videogames and thus make them unplayable.

There are a couple of tools out there that promises rivers of milk and honey when it comes to turning off the tracking (also known as telemtry) in Windows 10.

A friend of mine has tipsed me about an utility that should just do the trick:

Spybot Anti-Beacon for Windows 10 is a small utility designed to block and stop the various tracking (aka telemetry) issues that come with Windows 10. Seeing the bunch of incomplete or broken scripts to disable tracking in Windows 10, and the tools that install adware or worse in exchange for their function, we wrapped disabling tracking up in a small tool that’s free and clean. With the upcoming news about telemetry in Windows 7 and 8.1, Spybot Anti-Beacon has added support for those as well.

Also in the Privacy Settings page, just turn off everything and all should work out just fine for you. Enjoy and share!
