    After using the latest version of your script - disable_telemetry.cmd - offline - and installing - the system shows no internet access.
    Ethernet as well as wi-fi.
    Win 11- enterprise system.

    edit

    I found one more telemetry process - devicecensus.exe
    I think you could add it to your script -

    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTHIVE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Schedule\TaskCache\Tree\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceInformation" /f

    Is telemetry set to 0 by default in enterprise and education - or do you have to set it manually?

    The script is for Windows 10. Still i don't see how it affected your internet access.

    Hello to all Members of MDL Forums,


    I'm very impressed about this community and the work they do about individuals privacy on MS Windows Systems!

    I want to install Windows 10 on an old T430. It has a DigitalLicense baked in, which activates Windows 10 Home Edition.

    So I'm looking for a Solution to install Windows 10 Home with all/most Telemetry and Tracking disabled, most/all Bloat from MS removed and to have control when and what updates get installed!

    I want to wipe out most of the Telemetry stuff, without compromise security! Is this possible with Windows 10 Home or should i consider to install LTSC? Can i change the baked in DigitalLicense for the Home Edition to one for LTSC or is this Laptops HWID stored at MS Servers and i can't change?

    I read so many Threads here and got lost in space! :)

    I'm sorry, Im really overwhelmed by the many Solutions here provided. I don't know where to start and where to stop. Could anyone here lead me to a good script or tool, which a normal PC User understand to handle?

    I'm not very good in understanding of the commands and variables used in most of the scripts provided and English is not my main language. This make things not easier... :)

    A script/tool which asks before it removes something and explains if it's necessary to remove or if there's any danger when i remove a "feature", would be nice.

    Sorry for my poor Grammar, as told before English is not my main language...

    Any help is gratefully accepted! :)

    If you are concerned about Telemetry and "bloat" then your best option is LTSC
    As for the tools needed for disabling telemetry you will have to find one that you are comfortable with
    You can change the activation of your Home to LTSC

    Thx for answering and sorry for my late reply!

    I have read now many posts in this and other threads and i think now that it is near to impossible to avoid telemetry and tracking in all Editions of Windows 10. Now I'm really confused and i don't know what i should do?

    I believe you and was thinking the same, that LTSC would be my best choice to avoid most tracking and telemetry!

    My concerns are, about a audit from MS side. And maybe they try to even track someone more intense, cause a private user have an Enterprise Edition installed!?

    Maybe Education would be the better choice for individuals with unofficial activation methods?

    It looks like the user Aldegard, has managed to completely wipe all connections to MS or do i misunderstand this?

    Does your solution posted here (h t t p s:// forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/repo-windows-10-telemetry-repository.63874/page-66#post-1686849), block also all connections to MS and why are some reg tweaks missing (h t t p s:// forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/repo-windows-10-telemetry-repository.63874/page-66#post-1686221 / h t t p s:/ / forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/repo-windows-10-telemetry-repository.63874/page-66#post-1684376)?

    How does your script compare to this script from AveYo? (h t t p s:// forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/repo-windows-10-telemetry-repository.63874/page-52#post-1556279)

    Or this script from Dark Dinosaur? (h t t p s:// forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/windows-11-tweaks-fixes-and-modifications-overview.83744/page-17#post-1683742)

    What do you think about priv10 (h t t p s:// github.com/DavidXanatos/priv10) or what about the SophiaScript or SophiaApp (h t t p s:// forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/powershell-sophia-script-for-windows-10-windows-11-5-14-1-6-2-1-x64-2022.81675)?
    Are this good solution for Home Edition? I have a license for Win10 Home, so debloating this Edition would be nice cause i wouldn't need an unofficial activation method!


    Then there is ReviOS (h t t p s:// revi.cc/revios), what do you or other users think about that? Is it trustworthy?

    Or maybe go back to Windows 7 with Simplix UpdatePacks, is Windows 7 still secure with this UpdatePacks?

    As you can see, as more i read through the postings i get more and more confused... :-(


    P.s. Sorry for this messy links, i'm not allowed to post full links, cause i have not enough posts.

    Yeah, hardware supports Win7. Sadly i own only very old Hardware!

    But the ESU support ends next year in Win7, right?

    So i thought setting up a Windows 10 with most tracking removed would be the best way to go, so i can avoid a reinstall next year when support ends. But when i read all these posts about removing stuff, i'm not sure anymore... :)

    hey its not sad if you own the rare old hardware which is very very rare in current IT market. you are the most luckiest one to have this hardware & is still running in good condition.

    depends upon you to go with win10 or still be with win7 latest updated os via simplix update pack .where you will hate using win10 after a couple of months only if you do love using win7 as your most fav os till date.

    not sure if esu support is ending next year . even if its support ends next year even then we can use the os naa till we have that old hardware.

    i know abbodi1406 sir will do his magic again for win7 updates.

    I'm dealin with a T430 Thinkpad with an Intel i5 inside and a Dell Machine with an i3 inside, also i have a machine running with Phenom II x4 970BE and one with a FX-8350!
    All of this are running with Windows 7 on them, and sometimes a Linux Distribution to see what is going on in the Linux World! :) I'm really impressed, how linux has improved over the years.
    But, imo it's not ready for PrimeTime yet. It has to many disadvantages, with hardware compatibility and many Applications still have no Linux Version.
    Also, I'm feelin not secure with Linux, mainly cause i grew up with Windows Ecosystem and understand better what is going on there! :)


    I use stuff made by abbodi1406 and also simplix since a long time and I'm really happy and thankful for the work they do and give access to this work for free, especially to people like me
    where don't have much money! :)

    I really like Windows 7! But i also want to try new software and more and more is only available for Win10 and above!

    The T430 is the Device, on which i want to do a fresh install. It has a DigitalLicense for Win10 Home baked in. So i thought the HWID anyway is stored at MS Servers, then i can use this Device to try out Windows 10 and try out the solutions to debloat and make it more privacy friendly! But I'm really overwhelmed, by the many solutions...

    Should i give Blackbird a try or Priv10 or SophiaApp/Script! I'm unsure about Priv10, cause it got longer no update.

    Imo, freddie-o's script looks most promising and most complete to me. But I'm concerned, that i break many stuff for user friendliness with this one!

    The solution provided by Dark Dinosaur, looks also very promising.

    Maybe i install Windows 7 on that T430 and try out the solutions first in VM! That would be the best for me now.

    I would love to have a Windows 10 System with all/most of the features and user friendliness, but without callin' home and track all the things i do on my PC!
    But i have no idea, which components are the most important to deal with!

    Also, my consideration is now, that when everybody wipes different things and components out of the OS, it makes you even more unique and identifiable. What do you think about that?
