Please read if you have Windows 10

I’m not sure why this isn’t front page news.

Not only did Microsoft install Windows 10 without asking customers, not only did they add a bunch of shockingly horrible default privacy settings, but they will reset those settings on you when you do an update.

Bill Harris informs us on his blog below about this latest unbelievable action. He also points to a way to fix it — install a program called Spybot Anti-Beacon.

Windows 10 Privacy (update)

People should be expressing their extreme displeasure towards Microsoft by boycotting Windows 10. To go back to Windows 7 or 8, you’ll likely have to reformat your hard drive — which isn’t a big deal, you just have to make sure you have all your important files backed up.

If you do decide to keep Windows 10, please do whatever you need to do to ensure you’re not sending Microsoft any data you don’t want to send them.
