 All its options are available in Win-I -> Settings -> Privacy - Feedback and Diagnostics

disable Telemetry and Data Collection in Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro

open regedit and go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection

If you do not have such a Registry key, then just create it.

There you need to create a new a 32-bit DWORD value named AllowTelemetry and set it to 0.

disable a couple of Windows services

Go to Services and Applications -> Services in the left pane. In the services list, disable the following services:

  • Diagnostics Tracking Service
  • dmwappushsvc

Win-I -> Settings -> Privacy - Feedback and Diagnostics -> is grayed 

This should prevent Windows 10 from spying on you.

Updating the HOSTS file in Windows 10/8 - hosts.zip

Editors Note: in most cases a large HOSTS file (over 135 kb) tends to slow down the machine.
To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor"

  • Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes)
    Win8 users - Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services
  • Scroll down to "DNS Client", Right-click and select: Properties - click Stop [screenshot]
  • Click the drop-down arrow for "Startup type"
  • Select: Manual (recommended) or Disabled  click Apply/Ok and restart.
