Prevent Windows 10 Spying On You, Privacy & Security Matter!

In this version episode of #TechTip I show you how to disable all of the spying features of Windows 10 and get your privacy back. I think Windows 10 is a great operating system once you disable all the data gathering mechanisms and return it back to a pure operating system. ▼ Be sure and watch the updated version of this video after Anniversary update ▼ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgKJMsJ-6XU&feature=youtu.be ▼ Windows 10 - We're Watching T-Shirt (limited quantities!) ▼ http://www.barnaculesshop.com/products/were-watching-black-t-shirt ▼ Time Indexes ▼ 8:42 - Already have Windows 10 installed, Start here! ▼ Download Spybot Anti Beacon ▼ http://bit.ly/StopWindows10Spying ▼ Use the following links to support me & my channel ▼ Donate @ http://bit.ly/helpbarnacules Buy one of my T-Shirts @ http://shop.barnnerd.com Shop Amazon CA @ http://amazonca.barnnerd.com Discount on GT Omega Chairs @ http://bit.ly/1lA4h4K -or- Use code 'NERDGASM' at checkout! ▼ UPDATES ▼ 1) "some settings are managed by your organization" is displayed because Spybot Beacon changes some group policy settings. I didn't realize this while shooting the video but it makes sense. 2) If you notice Skype Group Chats stop working open up the HOSTS file and remove all of the entries containing MSN. I've had one report of this fixing the problem. ▼ Questions & Answers ▼ Q) I like Cortana so I don't want to disable that feature. A) That is fine, but just realized that Microsoft intentionally made Cortana dependent on the cloud meaning you have to give up your information, searches, contacts, calendar entries, etc to use her. You can't pick and chose what gets sent to Microsoft and still use the feature. It's all or nothing and I think this sends a bad message from Microsoft on what they are actually doing with that data. #TinfoilHat Q) Why do you hate Microsoft so much? A) I don't hate Microsoft, I worked there for 15 years as a Senior Software Developer. Windows is still my preferred platform that I use daily. What I don't like is the direction Microsoft is taking with regards to advertisement and marketing being the focus over the core operating system and innovation. Q) You should just run Linux! A) I like Linux but it's not in any position to be a replacement for an operating system like Windows. There is no Adobe support on Linux and it's not ideal for mainstream content creators and software developers. But who knows what the future holds if Microsoft keeps going down this dark street. Q) What is telemetry? A) It's Microsoft collecting data on your computer, what you search for, usage patterns, application usage, etc so they can analyze the data or use it for marketing. ** Full Disclosure: I worked at Microsoft for 15 years as a Software Developer and was laid off well over a year ago when Microsoft decided to get rid of the entire Windows test organization that I worked in. My goal is educate people on the best way to protect themselves while using Microsoft Windows because I still think it's the best operating system out there and I don't want to see Microsoft ruin that reputation by spying on all it's customers - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRV6PXB6QLk ▼ Support me by sending BitCoin (Wallet Address) ▼ 18Su2PV63BabMZWwYEhgXC8obK1XBVveCp ▼ Get 10% off Kinesis Split Ergonomic Keyboards & Pedals ▼ http://www.kinesis-ergo.com/ [use code 'Barnacules' at checkout to get 10% off] ▼ Join my Folding@Home team and help cure diseases with spare CPU/GPU cycles ▼ Barnacules Nerdgasm Team # 231300 Download Client @ http://folding.stanford.edu/ ** Top 10 contributers shown on Twitter weekly! ▼ I am now live streaming on Twitch so come give me a follow to receive notifications when I'm streaming ▼ https://www.twitch.tv/barnacules 💥 See my Amazon Store for all the products I use & review 💥 https://www.amazon.com/shop/barnacules1

Why MICROSOFT Force Installs Software Without Permission

Microsoft is using underhanded tactics to force Windows 10 installs on users boxes to bolster their adoption #'s and to support their unified platform and telemetry collection ambitions. This video will break it down for you and show you how to protect yourself. ▼ Get my Windows 10 - We're Watching T-Shirt (limited quantities!) ▼ http://www.barnaculesshop.com/products/were-watching-black-t-shirt ▼ Disable Windows 10 Spying Video ▼ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kGMCfb2xw ▼ Download Tools to Stop Windows 10 Forced Updates▼ GWX Control Panel - http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/ Never 10 - https://www.grc.com/never10.htm ▼ Roll back from forced Windows 10 upgrade (Within 30 days) ▼ http://www.pcworld.com/article/2960692/windows/how-to-uninstall-windows-10-and-go-back-to-windows-7-or-8.html ▼ Donations are always welcome & help me out a lot ▼ http://bit.ly/helpbarnacules ▼ Follow me on social media (updated daily!) ▼ http://twitter.com/barnacules [Giveaways] http://instagram.com/barnacules [Behind the scenes] http://facebook.barnnerd.com [More than 140 chars] ▼ Purchase MayFlower Objective 2 Headphone AMP + DAC ▼ http://bit.ly/1J0GZXK ^ - Use code "NERDGASM" to get $10 off any order over $99 ▼ Shut up and take me T-Shirt [One I'm wearing in this video] ▼ http://bit.ly/ShutUpBlack (Black Shirt) http://bit.ly/ShutUpGreen (Green Shirt) ^^ - Use code 'BarnaVlog for $2 off order ▼ Windows 10 - We're Watching T-Shirt ▼ http://bit.ly/WereWatching ^^ - Use code 'BarnaVlog for $2 off order ▼ Apple iBuggy T-Shirt ▼ http://bit.ly/iBuggyBlack (Black Shirt) http://bit.ly/iBuggyBlue (Blue Shirt) http://bit.ly/iBuggyHeavyMetal (Grey Shirt) ^^ - Use code 'BarnaVlog for $2 off order ▼ Purchase a Rad Power Bike (The bike I ride daily) ▼ http://bit.ly/RadPowerBikes ▼ Purchase a Rad Power Bike (The bike I ride daily) ▼ http://bit.ly/RadPowerBikes ▼ Discounts & Coupon Codes ▼ GT Omega Chairs @ http://bit.ly/1lA4h4K -or- Use code 'NERDGASM' at checkout! ▼ Check out my BLOG ▼ http://barnacules.wordpress.com ▼ Questions & Answers ▼ Q) I upgraded my media center (purchased TiVo) to windows 10 and it does now warn you that Windows Media Center will not be accessible after the upgrade and gives you the option to cancel. A) When I did my upgrades it was right after Windows 10 came out. Looks like enough people complained that they now show this which is fantastic. That being said I've already talked to a few people that had automatic upgrades occur during the night without the option to opt out because of media center. Q) You also have to understand that all other microsoft OS is no longer supported with updates. A) Wrong, The Microsoft life cycle requires them to support Windows 8.1 through 2023. They also have to continue to support Windows Vista through April 11, 2017 and Windows 7 through Jan 14th, 2020. Whoever told you that Microsoft will no longer support those platforms with updates is lying since it's required that they patch security holes & exploits as a part of ongoing support for those platforms. Q) Other operating systems like Android and iOS spy on you, how is this different? A) Microsoft always made it a point to call out those companies for the bullshit tactics they used and made Windows customers feel safer and more empowered by letting them know they wouldn't do crap like this (Look up 'Scroogled'). Microsoft decided that they were going to change directions when they laid off 1/3rd of their work force and embraced a new CEO that doesn't care about consumer trust. If Microsoft was untrustworthy out of the gate this wouldn't be an issue since people would expect it. But the fact they changed all their tactics and are absolutely 100% trying to deceive people to get an end result shows their true colors. ▼ Support me by sending BitCoin (Wallet Address) ▼ 18Su2PV63BabMZWwYEhgXC8obK1XBVveCp ▼ Get 10% off Kinesis Split Ergonomic Keyboards & Pedals ▼ http://www.kinesis-ergo.com/ [use code 'Barnacules' at checkout to get 10% off] ▼ Join my Folding@Home team and help cure diseases with spare CPU/GPU cycles ▼ Barnacules Nerdgasm Team # 231300 Download Client @ http://folding.stanford.edu/ ** Top 10 contributers shown on Twitter weekly! ▼ I am now live streaming on Twitch so come give me a follow to receive notifications when I'm streaming ▼ https://www.twitch.tv/barnacules 💥 See my Amazon Store for all the products I use & review 💥 https://www.amazon.com/shop/barnacules1

Comparing Windows 10 to Windows 7

In this video, I compare Windows 10 to Windows 7, two fairly similar but different operating systems from totally different time periods.
