Thank you because that article mentioned CEIP in earlier versions
So I disabled it in my 8.1 Ent.
Thanks Microsoft.... We can still block the information from being sent via the hosts file though?
@cactusjuice92: I wish that were true, but evidence is pointing to whitelisted IPs in the HOSTS processing code.
Watch your back.
Anyone wanting to not place your bets on the hosts file should read this thread, paying attention to the bottom in the peerblock section:
This thread is specifically for peerblock:
Does that group policy truly disable it?
same question here! does it really turn it off? also is there any "bad" side effect turning it off?
If the IPs are known, you could block them at the router level if you have open-source firmware like OpenWRT or DD-WRT.
I was just about to say the same myself
Certainly the best bet is to try and block it outside of Windows, MS may let you do many things, but in the end, do we know if it really is doing anything, or just something to make us "think" we have a choice.
