O&O ShutUp10

O&O ShutUp10 is a “free antispy tool for Windows 10” that makes it easy to deactivate features of Windows that may compromise users’ privacy and security.

The software presents a comprehensive list of settings that can be enabled/disabled with a single click. Furthermore, it indicates whether the software recommends disabling the setting altogether, disabling it only in limited circumstances, or doesn’t recommend disabling the setting at all.

Each setting has detailed text explaining what it does and how disabling or enabling any given setting will impact the usage of Windows.

O&O ShutUp10 is amazing freeware if only to see all of the ways that Microsoft uses Windows 10 to collect data about users (it is truly eye-opening if you haven’t used a tool like this before).
