BEST TOOL FOR STOPPING WINDOWS SNOOPING SHENANIGANS
There are a huge number of problematic settings in Windows, from Microsoft’s Advertising ID and system information uploads to the sharing of handwriting data and Cortana searches. ShutUp10 gives you one easy console to shut them all down at once, without having to dig through various settings menus and registry edits. It gives a huge list of potential privacy issues and lets you select which ones to switch (with some sensible recommendations in place as well).
Recommended alternative: W10Privacy ( www.winprivacy.de), has a similar feature set to ShutUp10, but also includes a clear description of what each option does (as well as the potential downsides of switching it off).
