Guest posted a topic in Software NewsWoman Wins $10,000 From Microsoft After Unwanted Windows 10 Upgrade Good for her! She deserves it based on their bad behavior. Too bad the award doesn't have 5 or 6 more zeroes to the left of the decimal point. The Redmond Mafia needs to learn a lesson for their bad behavior, and that tiny little slap on the wrist will only represent a minor inconvenience to them. They deserve to draw back a bloody stump. Unfortunately, the wickedness of Micro$loth knows no boundaries. They think they own us and our computers. This is what I use to kill all of the spyware and telemetry trash in Windows 10, block all updates and permanently expunge all of the bloatware apps and Windows Store garbage. It also kills and deletes OneDrive and disables (rather than only muting) UAC. Works great... very nice tool IMHO. Destroy Windows Spying I have also found third-party tweaks to replace the hideous giant calculator with the older version, completely kill the obnoxious Security Center nag-o-rama and exterminate Cortana. Notwithstanding the tacky-looking aesthetics that remain (nasty abuse of white and pastel colors akin to the Windows 8.X abortion) it's fairly decent if you go to enough trouble to correct all of their mistakes. Performance in some things is still inferior to Windows 7, unfortunately. I pointed that out as an 'Insider' quite some time ago, but they apparently do not plan to fix it. They started hindering CPU performance in Windows 8.X and they must think it's OK since they are leaving it messed up from then until now.
