Hello from Russia!

Can you please add command line parameters to this app? this will be VERY useful for IT guys, not only users you targeting this app to.

thanks!

This is really great, I appreciate you taking care and updating.

Maybe you should think of a watcher - we never know when some windows update restores some of the stuff back. Also for this reason a check could be done in this app to determine current state of things.

I also don't understand how System restore point is a spying feature. Isn't it meant to make system restore to a bootable state when it becomes broken?

One last thing, a moderately advanced user uses hosts for his own agenda, could you just grep for the hostnames and append lines that are missing there?

This worked like a charm , although I manually had disabled some of those "features" , it removed them completely. Fine by me !

Can I undo these changes w/o restore point? It wasn't created because service was off. Now my W10 update center can't connect to internet. I'm not sure is this a consequense of antispy but have no other ideas.
