    "Secrets" stores LSA Secrets, which can include passwords. I really wouldn't tamper with the permissions on that key. If you really want to see what is in there, try a tool like NirSoft's LSASecretsDump.

    You can uninstall updates after the fact, even after they were forced on you: i.imgur.com/q9keO4l.png

    found a file at \$Windows.~WS\Sources

    rghost dot net/6jFb4vr8d

    There is a lot of info inside it — one decryption key for all files, direct links to esds, not a sign of enterprise versions though

    If you open the registry and go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

    There's a DWORD value named "TelemetrySalt".

    I'm currently using Win10 Enterprise N LTSB x64 en-US, and this value is set to 5.

    I hope someone here has an idea of what the value means... :g:.

    Mine is set to 7 by default on Windows 10 Pro edition. I don't know what that is used for though.
