    Hey guys

    I am new to this forum, i found it through searching about windows 10 spying. I currently use windows 8.1, but I want to install windows 10, but only if I can prevent it from spying and disable all the telemetry. I have seen several ways to stop the spying and telemetry, but I am not clear as to if that also will prevent windows 10 from deleting pirated games and software. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get a copy of windows 10 x64 that doesn't spy and won't delete pirated software?

    Thanks!!

    All my software is pirated. I do not disable any telemetry at all, and Windows 10 hasn't touched it. You haven't a thing to worry about.

    Windows is spying for a long time on various versions already, include 8.1/8/7/Vista/XP, just, on Windows 10 Microsoft is first time admit for to do just that! So, don't get paranoid about that!

    and no it wont delete pirated software. Perhaps keygens/cracks etc that defender (if allowed to) will block and remove. If it were the case, I have more than 100TB of "questionable" software and files that would have been long gone lol.

    It always deletes Speccy, because it reckons that it's not compatible, but I just always re-install it afterwards.

    Just add exclusions for your "false positives" in Windows Defender or which ever AV you use and don't forget to do the same with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, if you use it, because it's more prone to "false positives".

    :)
