Post How to stop Windows 10 from spying manual "how-to"
This is short how-to disable, delete and remove all Windows 10 unwanted tracking and spying features with command line.

To do this automatically download our free Remove Windows 10 Spying Features app.

1. Disable Tracking Windows Services
in command line (with admin privileges) run following commands:
net stop dmwappushservice
net stop diagtrack

this stops running services
now, delete them:
sc delete dmwappushservice
sc delete diagtrack

reboot to delete them completely

2. Disable keylogger feature
navigate to the file %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl and delete all data inside the file with notepad or delete file and create new one with the same name, but empty.
in command line remove file system privileges for user SYSTEM
cacls "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl" /d "SYSTEM"
press Y to confirm the operation

start regedit and create/change following values:
value AllowTelemetry at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\DataCollection set to 0
value Start at HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\WMI\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener set to 0
value AllowTelemetry at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection set to 0

3. Disable domains for feedbacks
start notepad %WinDIR%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and add following lines into it, save the file

start ipconfig /flushdns in command line

3. Disable scheduled tasks
execute following commands into the command line to disable all unwanted scheduled tasks:
powershell -command "Disable-ScheduledTask -TaskName \"\Microsoft\Windows\Customer Experience Improvement Program\KernelCeipTask\""
SCHTASKS /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\Customer Experience Improvement Program\KernelCeipTask" /disable

Post Re: How to stop Windows 10 from spying manual "how-to"
Hi, thanks for all the work this needed to be done. thought id post because iv been experiencing some strange issues which may or may not be related. (also sorry for posting here if there is a more appropriate place i am unfamiliar with this forum) Recently after installing windows 10 and of course using this nifty little tool i have started to notice errors in the events log. some of them relate directly to the code written in you manual description. I assume this is normal and its just windows trying and failing to run processes related to 'spying'? What does concern me is that i am having random reboots(clean install etc...) events viewer shows that it is a critical kernal mode error also im seeing errors with readyboot and many more. As i say it could be totally unrelated but i thought it worth mentioning (also does this app change ownership of registry keys in anyway? as iv had issues with permissions for clsid and appid. Any insight would be greatly appreciated, iv been pulling my hair out over this

Change your windows updates from Automatically install to Download but let me choose what to install. Problem solved, you get all the good updates, and not Windows 10. You'll have to manually do it yourself for now. Not sure how they are going to handle the July deadline for "Free". My bet is it gets pushed out much further. Essay Expert Writing service UK Based
