How to delete unwanted Windows 10 ‘spying’ programs [Tip]

DoNotSpy10While it may seem most of the world had problems installing Windows 10, for most it has been a huge success. Once you’ve successfully completed the Windows upgrade, the general consensus is that Windows 10 is a much better operating system than Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. The Redmond company were under a great deal of pressure to produce the goods since earlier versions were not well liked by the public.

One of the problems a multitude of people have is with Microsoft’s new Privacy Policy. While many are applauding Microsoft for finally including a privacy Policy in their work, others are shaking at the knees after reading it.

If you are one of the people who prefer to remain as anonymous online as possible, you can go to extra lengths to stop Microsoft from ‘spying’ on you.
