    I.Dont.Care. I'm living in a 3rd world country, MS would have nothing to do with my data. And before worrying about your freaking PC OS, consider your life forfeited already if you ever possessed a smartphone, or even free mail service like Gmail/hotmail/yahoomail. And you guess what, nothing prevents your lovely dropbox from snooping on your business data (They might opt to not sharing it though)

    Local Account only.
    Don't click express setting during a install.
    Should be now.

    Tried turning off cortana (I don't need it) in the taskbar and it restarts every time within seconds...

    In response to the title of this thread...

    The Government, All major ISPs, All major search engines and everything else is spying on you. So why use the internet?

    It's a sad truth but no matter what you do your being spyed on in some way. All disabling these "spying" features does is close that spy hole just a little bit. At the end of the day, your PC is still just attached to billions of others.

    Didn't the same sort of stuff get added to 8.1 with an update not that long ago? MS has simply changed their direction because of what the market wants. Yes, the market as a whole. Not us old IT nerds who have been doing this s**t forever. The average tard wants all their devices connected, and doesn't see the point in a standalone PC in the age of Android and iOS tablets. Microsoft wants to stay relevant for obvious reasons, so they've made Windows 10 a hybrid of what Windows used to be with a nice coat of modern paint on top, AKA the APP experience and stuff like Cortana. The free upgrade was, IMHO, more about staying in the spotlight and getting in customers good graces than getting lots of people to mine data from. The data mining is a secondary concern here, because MS is WAYYY behind the curve in that area compared to Apple and Google. Google is the king of information currently, and anyone who uses google search in anything, or god forbid, Google Chrome, already has a scarily detailed profile created about them with a question mark as a name. As for the NSA, they've been able to find out about individuals for decades now through plenty of means. If Snowden didn't release the files he did, nobody would be this scared about privacy to begin with, and MS would be getting lauded right now for their progress into the arena where everyone else has been for years now. And really, the average user has never cared about privacy anyway. They don't care that someone knows what they jerk it to every night, because for both parties, it's just a faceless human example with no context. It's a lot harder to care when "someone" knows about you and what you do, it's simply not relevant. Therefore, we're at the point that if you do heavily value your privacy, you need to go way out of your way to protect it. You have to admit that you can't have your cake and eat it too. If you're going to be different and have a different opinion than most, then don't cry when you can't upgrade to the latest software or enjoy the same benefits of connectivity that everyone else does.

    Everything is spying on you, your OS (7 included), your phone, your email, even your smart TV (Samsung TVs).
    Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, Youtube, Skype, AOL, Apple all have joined PRISM and are actively data mining and profiling you.

    Heck if you have a Lenovo laptop, or a Xiaomi phone, the chinese are spying on you.
    There has been instances of backdoors in routers too.
    If you're not living off the grid somewhere in the mountains shielded from satelite view, you are being tracked, one way or another.

    Your smartphone is a GPS tracker with apps like Facebook requiring full access to GPS, Camera and Microphone.
    When you walk on the street, there are cameras all over the place from traffic, to security cameras all taking profiles of you.

    You're just deluding yourself if you think Windows 7 is safe in any shape or form as Microsoft has been on PRISM since 2007 and before W7 SP1 came out.
    So relax, toggle some switches to off and stop having panic attacks.

    If you're worried about being "spied on" then don't walk outside, there are cams everywhere. Don't ever use an ATM Debit card or credit card, they keep transaction records. Don't ever use a cell phone or a land line, they are also traceable. Don't ever go to a hospital or a doctor, they maintain a history on your health.

    You need to get over it.

    You're just saying that no one can live without leaving any trace, which is a truism. What the hack this has to do with spying?

    My health history in the hospital = just a health record
    Someone from outside trying to access my health record in the hospital = spying

    My beautiful figure being recorded during a walk in the city = security monitoring
    Some pervert playing that record in a hardcore party = disgusting violation of privacy

    I'm pretty relaxed regarding the control society. And they're going pretty well. Why so fallacious?

    Spy? I don't care. It will just make my experience better (e.g. Cortana, search suggestions) ;)

    Yeah, bend over and accept the invasion of privacy, because who cares? right? I'd like to see where you keep your passwords and encryption keys.
