Do any of you all use O&O Shutup to take care of Windows 10's "inclinations" ?
Check out this review:https://helpdeskgeek...-from-spying-on-you/
Now, I posted a comment at the bottom in the Disqus comments, but the comment was refused - which is why it's not there.
I said something like,
"If O&O Shutup is a Microsoft Gold Partner, then why does Microsoft allow them to remove the spyware that it intended to be in their system."
Okay, I agree that it is a little forward in manner, but the question stands. The article props up the O&O company as a valuable M$ associate, but the software is designed to actually undo potentially unwanted aspects of the system in ways that are not really available to Windows 10 users without modifying the registry and/or system files.
My intention was to get some insight as to why M$ would allow them to do that. If M$ allows them, is O&O actually doing what it says? Can one of you more techie sorts vouch for the Shutup program? I use it, and it does appear to do the trick - it removes all the ads and nags like it's supposed to. But how can they be a partner and still do this?
