    I have tested Windows 10 TP for a few days. Then I discovered, Windows received something constantly from Microsoft.
    I don't use any strange software, patch or crack tools. My installed soft: Office 2013, ESET, SQLExpress, Chrome, IDM and nothing else. No new update available.

    Maybe someone has ever encountered, and fixed. Please, help me! :confused:

    It is Technical Preview. Read the agreement that came with it. You agreed to allow MS to collect data by installing TP.

    one good one to block at this time is teredo.ipv6.microsoft.com,(94.245.121.253) I watched 10MB of data go down the pipe to that IP in a couple hours. I haven't looked more yet, but I am sure there are more lol

    Sure MS does that!

    For to get more Infos what Windows 10 (and any other Windows!) does on line, you'll need an Sniffer Apps for that. I use NSAuditor (it's payware) for such and other apps as well.

    Like it or not, on the other hand MS is relying on the infos for to be able to improve the upcoming new versions and get bug's solved. MS could not run the same in their own departments because of much different use of Windows and installed apps by the "normal" user's! That's essential infos and very needed by MS. Even MS has thousands of developer and Office Employees, those are nothing against the myriads of on line users on the Internet!

    Autodesk as an example has told on some exhibition years ago, that they relying on the infos from un-authorized Users of AutoCAD and their other application for to get them working fully and clean as possible. MS is in the exact same situation! So don't be worry to use even pirated apps on MS Pre-Final Versions!

    I'm not surprised of things coming from m$, they spend more time to develop spies than giving a real stable OS with patches growing up every months. In fact we are betatesters since the beginning :cool:

    Then, disconnect the machine from internet and connect only if needed! You could although "ban" all MS IP's! Later would be a hard work!

    to find out the exact content, you need to capture the packages send to you and than use an Hex-Editor to open them! A lot of work and useless IMOH!

    All these people I see here and on other forums complaining about this. I can't believe how many people don't bother reading anything. They see Windows Technical Preview and go straight to downloading and installing it so they can feel cool because they have a preview of Windows 10 installed. No questions asked. Then are surprised to see Microsoft collecting data for feedback.

    I enjoy reading the ones posted by the hardcore paranoids though. It's all about the NSA and Microsoft teaming up to get them personally. You know, because they are soo important that the NSA/MS watch their every move. All posted from their Windows 10 installs too more than likely lmao.

    Lets all just find the IPs and block them in the host file problem solved.

    Apparently if you browsed a certain Linux-related site or use TOR, you're branded as an extremist, since you apparently "want to hide something".

    But hey, go ahead and make the NSA's job easier by being so publicly open :p Gotta protect the USA and stop terrorism, and all that stuff.

    But I do agree though, if you are actually trying to be protective of your data (like you should), the last thing you should be doing is using a tech preview of an operating system designed to get feedback... If you're going out of your way to not give feedback and to prevent feedback being sent to Microsoft, why on earth are you using the tech preview to begin with?

    Because some of us like to use the latest things and learn how they work, without it being necessary to shrug off our privacy too? Why SHOULDN'T we be able to disable it if we choose to? It's our computer and our files, and nobody knows what is being scanned, or sent, or received, or where it might end up.

    I don't let people wander round my home rifling through my things, even those I invite. Why trust a company proven to be involved in one of the biggest privacy invasions at all to do so?
    More to the point; So what if you don't mind? These people do. Why shouldn't they be allowed to try to figure out how to disable it if they want to for any reason? If they are concerned enough to be trying to find out how to do so, how about just letting them get on with it? Just because some people don't care doesn't mean they have to be held to that person's standard.

    Then there's always the chance we learn and find out more by trying.

    That's the price you have to pay for to get early access to something which is still under heavy development! You're informed from the developer that those OS ios for testing only but productive in any means, all what you do is totally on your own risk! If you could not accept that, just simply keep your hands off from such software!

    I hate it - Windows 10. It has downloaded something to 2 GB only an hour. When I connect to the Internet, it continues to happen.
    No updates, nothing new :mad:

    Except it isn't the price. We have a choice - disabling what we can.
    If I said that by continuing to read this post, beyond this point, you owe me $1,000,000, do you have to now pay me that in exchange for doing so?
    We can fight for our privacy if we want. We can learn how to disable these things if we want. I'm fairly positive that Microsoft frown on the usage of things like the Daz loader and insist that you not use KMS activators either - in the end it's still down to what the end user wants to do with their PC containing their files though.
    It's not like people don't have legitimate reasons to be concerned or interested in what is being sent and received by their own computer. Us trying out the software of our own free will and accepting whatever consequences not updating or allowing this stuff might have, doesn't ultimately matter to them.

    According to your picture 1, you had enabled quite a bit "Extras" and those need although quite a bit of space, beside that those needed files will be downloaded. Until you've everything installed and updated to latest stages, you still will have some (or a lot) downloads!

    By the way, just after installing Office 2013 windows will start to download the SP1 and more Updates for Office 2013 and that's already more than 2GB! I had that too on my machine and didn't mind about it!

    So, I would suggest that you finish you installation of your required apps first, do the required updates and than , after that start to monitoring what will going on further on your machine. And if you've time enough, use an Sniffer Apps to capture the activities, with creation of Log-Files and try to find out what the he** is going on. That will be a lot of work, if you've a lot activities check out! Such log files could easy have tenth of thousand of lines!!
