    Control Update means, NO Windows update too.
    So.

    Control Windows Update, very Intelligent mode :p

    Spoke with blackbird dev, don't recommend to run it with 1809, it completly breaks start menu and immersive control panel.
    Focus and assist settings (disabling WpnUserService) and device settings (disabling deviceflow) both will crash.
    I'd personally recommend to put these unistacks services in 'manual' instead of 'disabled'.

    And if you have problems with immersive control panel (not loading from start menu), go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager ,
    put ContentDeliveryAllowed value back to 1 and run:
    Get-AppxPackage -allusers | foreach {Add-AppxPackage -register "$($_.InstallLocation)\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode}

    Would call it stupid mode...Or seems I'm not enough intelligent to be able to put my ethernet connection as metered...:D

    It is also intended for the stupid too, but perhaps they must read it several times. :laie:

    @Blackbird_Dev What is the best method to update your script? Perhaps restore backup then run new version, is there a better way ?
    Thanks for your great work.

    Hi everyone. Found this topic and i have a questions. Could somebody answered please

    1. Are there any sources of BlackBird program (Maybe I did not find)
    2. Why it was necessary to compile, If the batch files immediately show what the program does and can be edited
    3. You don't trust Billy (me too) but why do you believe BlackBird

    And the most important question is whether there is an analogue of the BlackBird program, only in cmd files.

    No, it's not FOSS, it's an indie project.

    I don't trust anyone with my PC, but after testing Blackbird in a sandbox, reading the responses to feed-back from it's author, his posts here and elsewhere, I don't think he has any ulterior motives to those he describes on his site, in interviews, on Facebook, these and other forums. As well his app has been tested by some high rollers in the media and they like it.

    Analog to some of the features, yes, but some of the things Blackbird does can't be accomplished with PowerShell script...

    Wrong assumption :cool2:.

    Reason for this thread was to enable people to disable any telemetry related stuff manually (or automated in batch for readability) not to discuss compliled solutions.

    Hehe, some / most of your compiled solutions could be done on the open via batch / powershell / c# (csc) scripts, and would simplify life for everyone.
    BlackBird author probably has the same reasons you do to go with exe's (mainly, hubris :smoking:), even if it's such a pain in the rear to update, host, deal with av's.
    It would be ideal tough that everything OS tweaking related to be provided as scripts / source code

    Has nothing to do with my tools and didn't talk about them at all :cool:.

    Was referring to the options given in OP.

    for a example source code on C, hello world

    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>;
    int main() {
    cout << "Hello, world!" << endl;
    return 0; }

    compile -> program_helloWord.exe

    Billy is Bill Gates, when windows 3.11 appeared it was fashionable to scold him and praise os/2 )))

    You do not trust anyone, and you run an unknown program, not knowing what it does. You can trust the program in two cases, 1. You compiled it from source code 2. You have a lot of time and you are a disassembly guru.

    Can you give an example, IMHO this is not true

    If you want to see the Blackbird's source it can be easily converted to a batch file.

    What I wanted to offer
    Create a script on the GitHub and make edits there by joint efforts

    I know I'm talking about. Can't attach the .bat directly so I attached a .zip of it.

    I am sorry
    Why hide that this is a simply batch file packed in pseudo exe?

    That's interesting slayer9450 what did he use to pack the cmd file into an exe, and what did you do to extract it, or does it auto extract at run?

    Probably put a lot of work into it, and didn't want it hijacked like so many project here and MDL have been. I may be mistaken but it looks like there may be more to the exe then just being a container for the CMD file, can't tell what it was compiled with so hard to tell...

    You're not reading what I wrote, and your two rules for your version of 'trust' aren't the only options, and as standards are ridiculous applied to Windows -- as the OS itself doesn't even come close to meeting your criterion.


    As I said, I ran Blackbird in a VM sandboxed. I also ran Mark Russinovich's RegMon and FileMon utilities to see what it did -- there was nothing subversive that I could ascertain.

    It's not a guarantee of absolute 100% trustworthiness but then what is? I doubt you can tear down and run diagnostics on a Pratt & Whitney JT8D engine, or are going to do that every time you fly on a commercial airliner -- yet you 'trust' the engines...
