NOTE:
This information is based upon the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803/17134.1) released April 2018.

Please note: this information is no longer updated. Please take that fact into consideration when reviewing this information.

But still a very good starting point.

Yes, 4wd, excellent lead for those that don't know about Black Viper.

That's what I started with.  You betcha.  But I still cut back a few.  Wondering if I trimmed anything I shouldn't have.

Hate unneeded, unwanted stuff running in the background.  If necessary, okay.  If not, seems good to disable.

It's so hard to know for sure which is which.

Depending on your use case, you might want to take a second look at eventlog.  It's helped me out of a jam when Windows is acting wonky for some reason.

Thanks, wraith808.  I disabled it because of the incessant, never-ending writing to logs.  Thought it could be hurting performance in ways.

I use Blackbird.

Don't want Windows spying on your every move?  Don't feel like spending hours messing with privacy settings that ultimately still result in data collection?  Think your private information belongs to you and no one else?  Or maybe you just want a faster PC and don't like all the new "features" Windows has to offer.

We think so too, so we made Blackbird V6
-Blackbird

https://www.getblackbird.net/
https://www.getblackbird.net/download/
https://www.majorgee...tails/blackbird.html

What Blackbird Does:

  • > Disables OneDrive
  • > Disables Cortana (Kill Cortana completely with -kc switch; See Command-line Switches below)
  • > Disables Bing-integration
  • > Disables all AutoLoggers
  • > Disables Wi-Fi Sense
  • > Disables system-wide telemetry (on all editions of Windows 10 and older)
  • > Disables all OS advertising (tips, pop-ups, suggested apps, etc.)
  • > Disables all Xbox Live services
  • > Disables web content evaluation ("SmartScreen") and prevents URL check-in
  • > Disables Windows Media online DRM
  • > Disables Windows P2P Update sharing
  • > Disables hidden Windows metric startup tasks
  • > Disables all diagnostic tracking services
  • > Disables all application metric-data collection agents
  • > Prevents system read access to already collected diagnostic data
  • > Prevents any location/contacts/messages/handwriting/password sharing
  • > Prevents cross-device synchronization (ie; Windows Phone auto-syncing with PC account data)
  • > Removes GWX and Windows 10 upgrade pop-ups
  • > Removes Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA)
  • > Removes your unique ad-tracking ID token
  • > Removes a bunch of Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 telemetry updates (View full list here)
  • > Removes Superfish, eDellRoot, HP Touchpoint Analytics, VisualDiscovery and other security risks
  • > Removes all pre-install Windows 10 Upgrade files/folders on Windows 7, 8, 8.1
  • > Blocks 300+ different tracking/telemetry/ad servers (View full list here)
  • > Patches various data leaks (IE/Edge, Explorer, Defender, MRT, SMB)
  • > Applies various network tweaks (enables RSS,ctcp,tcp-offload,ECN)

INCLUDES:
>Blackbird App Manager (Windows 10 only) : Block any system application the easy & user-friendly way.
>Blackbird STD : Force removal of stubborn spy tasks.
>Backup & Restore : Save current system settings to an external file restorable at any time.


## Command-line Switches

Blackbird can also be invoked in CMD with the following switches available: (https://www.getblack...d.net/documentation/)

Freeware.

Yes, 4wd, excellent lead for those that don't know about Black Viper.

I'll also point out this post I made awhile ago: BlackViperScript
