    You're welcome.

    I see I made a few small mistakes when I typed that up but everything is still easily understood for the most part.

    Should i use this tool with Enterprise LTSB edition or is it not necessary if I previously disabled telemetry ?

    If you're talking about the powershell script, it's still a good idea to run it even if you already ran the destroyer program...

    I was waiting endlessly for someone to notice that small little bug :D

    And looking at the C:

    That's a big problem because someone might have a hard drive with drive letter D: OR E: OR F: :g:

    __

    All the C's need to be replaced with a \

    I'll make sure to update the script with that information in the next couple of hours.

    A little busy right now :D

    Im sorry i wasn't clear enough compen , but i wanted to know if there is a need to run the destroyer program since im already running entreprise LTSB version with telemetry disabled and removed from shell, and most of the other stuff disabled in the group policy ?

    Oh I see. Sorry about that...

    It all depends on how the telemetry was disabled.

    So how did you disable it? With a program or through the registry,etc...

    Yesterday i was messing with some commands and suddenly i removed all the metro apps :doh:

    although i brought them back using this command:

    Code:
    powershell -command "Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register \"$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml\"}"
    but now the apps are all in english while my system is not.

    Any ideas? I know this is not directly related to the topic but maybe someone knows :p

    Does anybody have a solution on how to be able to get Insider Builds again, after having run this program???

    I have run all the uninstall-scrips, both the.bat file and also the.reg file, and I´ve also checked my hosts file, and removed all entries added by the program, but I am still unable to join the Insider Program, it says in windows update/advanced settings that some settings are handled by my organization (i.e a group policy), that I can´t remove because I don´t know the registry key that added it, and I also am running Windows 10 Home, so no gpedit.msc...

    Its done purposely by Microsoft. If you disable telemetry, no insider builds for you. My uninstall script doesn't fix that issue either

    -

    Theres a reg key hidden to fix it... No idea what it is though.

    what i did was the manual powershell removal of diagtrack and the other telemetry one, then manually set some group policies including telemetry to disabled since im on enterprise i can do it. Disabled defender, Privacy settings are all disabled
    It seems the only thing im missing is the host file list

    So which versions do you guys recommend, Windows 10 Education (I have a key) or just upgrade from my windows 10 pro or change windows 8 to windows 8 enterprise and upgrade to windows 10 enterprise? And what should I run than with the enterprise/pro , only this BAT script and I am safe? Or just better run the program?

    Do an update from 8 to 10 first. If you have 8 Home, use 10 Home. If you have 8 Pro, go with 10 Pro. After that you can do a clean install of 10 and it will auto-activate since Microsoft is keeping track of hardware ID. Run the BAT script after with elevated privileges (Run as administrator).
