I've got nothing to hide πŸ™‚ Tailored adverts are better than random ones.

I have nothing to hide either but that is not the point. I have used this and stopped everything on first page. Everything is still working great! Not sure what some of the optional ones are though like Web Search Group Policy and remote reg service (which was already off for some reason). Any one know what they are? I already turned off OneDrive as I don't use it.

Nice tool, thanks.

So is this tool actually shutting down services or something else?

Well yeah, but no adverts are even better

Better or worse than O&O Shutup 10 ?
Never heard of this. Anyone compared yet? I guess it does the same thing? EDIT: Just had a quick look at O&O and waoooo soooo many options that I have no idea what they are. Too many options in fact with very little in the way of explaining what is good/bad to turn off.

I'm using it since a month and I shut off everything but Windows updates. No strange things happened since then. πŸ™‚

Anti-Beacon has some things that O&Os solution doesn't have and vice versa. O&O ShutUp is more user friendly. @HonoredShadow There is a description if you click on an option. The ones with the green check mark can be disabled by most people without impairing their experience if you dont use Cortana. Personally, I did allow some of the geolocation stuff to get better search results though.

Thanks for that. I dare not touch anything hence why I did not know it had a drop down description box! I think I still prefer Anti Beacon for me. It's cleaner and easier to understand.

I am a little confused so can someone explain further please? Does this stop the service/feature from running at all or just prevents that service/feature from contacting Microsoft?

That is what I asked above but no one answered so far.

Anti-Beacon will disable tracking features included by Microsoft in the operating system. By clicking the β€œUndo” button in the main window you can re-enable all tracking services. I've been using this on all my Windows 10 machines for over a week now. Works great, no probs.

You're missing the point. I don't need any of that on my PC so bye bye!

My phone is a brick with no functions and does not connect to the internet. I don't have any 'accounts'. Even if I did, it would all be deactivated as I know how.

Web search group policy is probably just a setting to restrict search data. Its probably what this tool does, just auto-configures settings which can be set manually anyway. Group policies are basically domain-settings, which can be pushed to domain clients to force them to work in a certain way. There are even group policies to disable file explorer or make BitLocker mandatory. Its enterprise stuff and this search setting is probably only meant for enterprises. Remote Registry Service is also enterprise stuff. It enables remote editing of your Windows Registry and its off by default anyway.

don't know this one but i am sure (as this one too) that it just use the key to disable service. i have done it at W10 launch (it's pretty much the same way than in windows 8.*), but this is more easy if you are not IT and it is cute... :thumbup: good tool

My phone is only being used for outward calls and alarm.
my phone is for phoning (the free LG phone with a 2 Euro unlimited voice/text phone package... far than enough) ... for me too much computer in it, kill the hype of the smartphone (was feeling at work each time i have a call).

Ditto, just installed it. Can't wait to install it on the rest of my PC's.
