    Technically, all of them and none.

    They're safe in that most people use them without many problems, but usually, you'll have some problems (eventually). Microsoft has so integrated their spying that it's becoming more harder to remove it without ever having a single problem.

    This is not to suggest that you'll ever have one, but no one can suggest that they guarantee you'll never have one.

    I heard this one came with some OpenCandy: DoNotSpy 10
    Do you know if any other come with OpenCandy and such?

    Is it wise to use all of these together for better privacy? Any other useful app I should use for maximum privacy?

    It did and the author was being sneaky about it. Which I really hated because I saw it as defeating the whole point. :mad::rolleyes:

    In my signature, you'll find a clean copy. :eek: ;)

    So using all of those in first post is the best way to get maximum privacy? Or something else I should add to the list?

    Maximum within Windows 10? Sure, but again, depending on how you use your system, see post #2 (my 1st reply). There is no definitive answer and that's as close as it gets.

    Virtually guaranteed privacy and stability? Switch to Linux

    Absolute guaranteed privacy and stability? Unplug. :death: :p

    you have nothing to hide.....
    Is that your point of view or your Government?
    Maybe your dear old Mom lives in an area known for prostitutes and you visit her every Friday for an hour after work until after 6 months one of these hookers is found dead near your Moms apartment....Could you convince the authorities that your laptop, phone, fitbit, watch or whatever in the near future tracking your moves would prove you to be innocent?

    I understand its hard to get close to maximum privacy. I just wanted to check with you guys if there was more I could do for better privacy in Windows 10. I know I won't get what I want with Windows 10 but atleast I want to do my best and do some research about what I can do about it.

    I have used Linux a couple of times and have very little skills in Linux but I will definitely try and learn more about it.

    "Nothing to Hide" is a very dangerous concept, it lure's you into a false sense of security. Not from other people or even M$, but the one's who can really F...up your life, The authorities/police/govt.
