Go to control panel, programs, windows updates and look for these updates

If you see any of those or all of them, delete them. It takes a couple minutes each and after you are done, restart the computer. These "updates" allow microsoft to spy on you much like win 10 does. Any anything ms collects, the govt will have its nose into, we all know that. If you don't want to be low hanging fruit for le to pick when they have nothing better to do, delete these update. Also its recommended to use a proxy, or a vpn, or tor, and pgp. Then you become the impossibly tough one to catch and they settle for those who dont take any precautions.

I wasnt sure where to put this since we don't have a security type forum.

You were certainly ahead of the curve by condemning this, Grandote. Everyone, and their brother, were pushing in a couple of years back. I wish that I was a member back then and saw this post. I had 10 for a brief time and chucked it, for all of the reasons that you mentioned. I went on Craigslist and had someone build me a PC with an older version of Window's on it.  RM
