For reference i do not think of the telemetrics in windows 10 as spyware, but i see it commonly called that. Regardless its annoying, so its in here as well :D

Taking control of windows updates has become much easier thanks to third party utilities, no more need registry hacks or hidden away settings - one program rules them all.

^Russian forum where the creator posts his changelogs (search for your language here, keep that .ini file near the .exe to change language)

http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/64939-Windows-Update-MiniTool
^English discussion forum/thread/links

^English downloads seem to be kept here for now (not always up to date - see above threads)

Use this wonderful tool, change automatic windows updates in the bottom left to disabled. That's it, and you're now able to pick and choose what downloads you want to download, and you don't have to install them right
away.
These updates are genuine updates from microsoft, its merely changing the user interface. There is no risk of faulty or infected updates.



The next great and humorously titled program you need is O&O's "Shut Up10"
As their own page states:
O&O said:
O&O ShutUp10 is entirely free and does not have to be installed – it can be simply run directly and immediately on your PC. And it will not install or download retrospectively unwanted or unnecessary software, like so many other programs do these days!
This one's rather simple to use, although can be more confusing in practice. You simply toggle windows 10 features - including windows defender - on and off. Green means "safe" (off) red means "on" (windows default)

Changes are applied immediately, but may not take effect until a reboot. I recommend caution with this one, and not just blindly changing settings - disabling windows update here will stop the other tool from working, for example.



https://www.safer-networking.org/spybot-anti-beacon/
^Spybot AntiBeacon seems to be specialised towards cutting out unwanted external communication.

another method:
Another easy 'fix' that disables some shit and reduces some HDD and bandwidth stress:

win + r -> services.msc -> ok

You can disable these 3 services:

Background Intelligent Transfer Service
Connected User Experiences and Telemetry
dmwappushsvc




p.s. you can also try this:

win + r -> regedit -> ok

Go to the following Registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection

Create a new a 32-bit DWORD value named AllowTelemetry and set it to 0. Reboot for changes to take effect.

This definitely would come in handy for those of us that use insider builds, alot of the time I really try to avoid updating the builds since some I've liked over others

added spybot anti beacon, as it seems pretty simple and has options the other programs dont.

That's a lot of shit to turn off. I wonder if there may be any improvement in system responsiveness or anything after disabling all that garbage.

Another easy 'fix' that disables some shit and reduces some HDD and bandwidth stress:

win + r -> services.msc -> ok

You can disable these 3 services:

Background Intelligent Transfer Service
Connected User Experiences and Telemetry
dmwappushsvc



p.s. you can also try this:

win + r -> regedit -> ok

Go to the following Registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection

Create a new a 32-bit DWORD value named AllowTelemetry and set it to 0. Reboot for changes to take effect.

This is fancy, but alas the effort involved is more than I am willing to put in.

After using O&O ShutUp 10, I get in my Windows Update settings that "some settings are managed by your organization" and I can't change anything. I'd like to be able to check up on my things and change them myself. It's my own computer... I ain't at work in an office somewhere dammit.

After using O&O ShutUp 10, I get in my Windows Update settings that "some settings are managed by your organization" and I can't change anything. I'd like to be able to check up on my things and change them myself. It's my own computer... I ain't at work in an office somewhere dammit.
thats why i use the third party windows update tool, as a replacement ;)

I have to say, despite it looking like a dodgy download, that update tool works like a charm!!
