    Cheers.

    I have read through the post already but that's exactly why I am asking as its totally clear to me




    So I have done the steps in the first post :
    1. Set telemetry level to 0 = security.
    2. Set Turn off Windows Network Connectivity Status Indicator active tests to Enabled.
    3. Disable Defender SmartScreen.



    Do I then need to go the steps in Post 2: WINDOWS 10 TELEMETRY REPO ?

    Delete Telemetry Services
    Delete Remnants of Diagtrack and Cortana
    Task Scheduler Block
    IP Re-Routing
    Hosts File Block
    Packages Uninstall Lists
    PEERBLOCK for Blocking Telemetry
    Windows 10 IP Range Block List
    Apps Online Uninstall


    Is it either/or.?

    For example in doing steps 1-3 above means I do not need to Delete Telemetry Services, Delete Remnants of Diagtrack and Cortana, ask Scheduler Block etc ?
    Steps 1-3 takes care of the other steps ?


    Thanks

    Personally I've been at it for years. I observed there are almost as many [configurations, scripts, tools, how tos] as there are those that are either "disabling" or minimizing it. Presently I resigned myself to just minimizing it through the Registry as shown here.

    Thanks alot of that, I will take a look.

    BTW, why is defender bad from a privacy issue - is it not enough to simply disable submission to cloud for suspicious files ?

    There's that--Microsoft Active Protection Service (MAPS), Malicious Software Removal Tool (MRT), Smartscreen and Windows Defender itself that monitor, log and report everything. Better to just chuck the whole darn thing. :D
