This version of Disable Windows 10 Tracking pretty much fixes like, everything. I think?

Instructions

  1. Download dwt-x.x-cp27-win_x86.zip below
  2. Extract the files in any directory.
  3. Right click on DisableWinTracking.exe and press Run as administrataor
  4. Choose any/all of the options you'd like
  5. Select either "Privacy" to enable the tweaks, or "Revert" to revert them.
  6. You can read the output in the console dialog to see if it worked.
  7. That's it!

RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR!

I cannot stress this enough, not running the program as an administrator will result in none of the tweaks being applied.

Changes since v3.1.0

Have fun!
