    This may sound stupid, maybe it is, I am not a coder so I don't know, but somehow would it be possible to stop Telemetry without stopping services, without deleting things in Windows 10 that repair operations would just try and reinstall?. A program that did nothing but stop the outgoing calls to whomever with our personal data, maybe someone at MDL could write it if possible, we would be beta testers, before he/she went public and made millions. :g::g:


    EFA11, your thoughts:worthy::worthy:

    I think I remember, it was called Shut up, or something like that but I think that one went further,
    I'm talking about just stopping calls to home.:D

    The program is called Windows Firewall Control and it's just a front-end for the existing Windows Firewall. It is NOT a third-party firewall, just for the record.

    With software anything is possible.
    The hard ( and likely illegal ) part is reverse engineering the networking portion of window 10 and installing the hooks ( preferably during boot ) required to trap and defuse the offending "phone home" calls.

    Sounds simple, doesn't it ?

    Of course as soon as someone writes the software to do just that, Micro$oft will issue an update which will do the same thing in a different way thereby putting you right back to square one.

    :g: Perhaps it would be easier to infiltrate Micro$oft and stop it before it gets released ? :biggrin:

    It is standard blocking all outgoing traffic you have to unblock what you like to use for out going traffic :tea:

    To stop Telemetry isn't possible to do 100%% or even 90% or 80% from a Windows (any Version) running Computer! The "Devil" is already put inside Windows and will find a way "Home" all times he wants!

    The only working way is the use of a Hardware or very advanced external Firewall like provided with Smoothwall, PFSense and a very few other good apps. Those ar running on their own or Linux, or even Unis OS'es! It's just a lot work to configure those and would never be done in one day or even one week! To get such ready to, let say 95-98%, you'll need at least a month or more. And you'll really never finish with configuring, because those, who you like to block, are adding new ways all the time again and again! That will force you to spend every day a little time for to check again for that new 'way's' and add them to your Block-List.

    By one of our customers, we already have blocked more than 300K addresses in Smoothwall, and continue to add every week at least a few hundreds more! The lowest add in one week in 2015 were in April with 97 addresses!

    Just, such work, if really needed pay's off! Since we had implemented Smoothwall at that customer 4 years ago, we had just 1 serious breach! Not bad on a network with more than 500 workstations, from which are more than 300 connected to the Internet!

    So, the question really would be: Do you need such protection?

    Not forget, if you try to do such from within an MS OS, you stop short by below 50% protection!

    That's probably how it works, as soon as they find out what you are doing, they simply just change it up, do it a different way. I am more concerned about using repair options and them setting everything back to default, thanks. :g:
