    To completely remove OneDrive from your profile save the following as .bat file and run it:

    @echo off
    echo Uninstalling OneDrive...
    start /wait "" "%SYSTEMROOT%\SYSWOW64\ONEDRIVESETUP.EXE" /UNINSTALL

    rd C:\OneDriveTemp /Q /S >NUL 2>&1
    rd "%USERPROFILE%\OneDrive" /Q /S >NUL 2>&1
    rd "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive" /Q /S >NUL 2>&1
    rd "%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft OneDrive" /Q /S >NUL 2>&1

    reg add "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}\ShellFolder" /f /v Attributes /t REG_DWORD /d 0 >NUL 2>&1
    reg add "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}\ShellFolder" /f /v Attributes /t REG_DWORD /d 0 >NUL 2>&1

    echo.
    echo OneDrive has been removed. Windows Explorer needs to be restarted.
    pause

    start /wait TASKKILL /F /IM explorer.exe
    start explorer.exe

    Likely no because I already have the Windows Firewall enabled, always have, yet I still see those errors. I am also using an upgrade from Windows 8.1 Pro and not a clean install.

    intresting seeing MS seem to say those error are cause Firewall is disabled. maybe some those error are cause I removed some of those apps trying to update? yet again some those apps that try to update/fail to register with firewall have been removed from my user profiles too, my solution was Event Viewer>Application and service logs>Microsoft>Windows>WindowsUpdateCLient>disable logs

    Ironicly what was working upto now, no long works even with the above log disabled I get those error clear logs and set firewall back to auto and reboot and the logs/errors are gone


    Event Viewer>Application and service logs>Microsoft>Windows>WindowsUpdateCLient>disable logs


    Only error i cant seem to get rid of is

    The Sync Host_Session1 service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

    Serives it not listing in services but file it refering too is c:windows\system32\Mobsync.exe

    Almost all not necessary unless you're paranoid. The only thing I disabled is Cortana because I have no use for it. The WiFi thing is harmless because people have to be in your contacts or network already plus be close enough to use it. The synching is a great feature and OneDrive is completely harmless. The only bad thing could be a forced driver update but the rest is much ado about nothing.

    If you use a local account many of these features are disabled by default anyways.

    Only for teh true paranoid guys, if u arent one, move along and dont comment on that :) haha


    i finished the "Anti MS" hosts list..
    ill put it on pastebin..

    --> http://pastebin.com/krsQTypn

    WARNING: this (with an modded dnsapi.dll) will/should block all MS connections that we know of atm...

    of course there wil be new adresses, so it needs updating..

    but all in all, its very good so far, tested one day, and nothing got out..

    Of course, UPDATE wont work haha, this is for teh truly paranoid i guess..

    the DNSAPI.DLL, im not gonna upload it since it would be dunno, not legal? i should make an tutorial so everyone can do it by himself.. its a system file non teh less.. (safety reasons)

    If you guys want...?!?!

    I don't have the time to read the whole thread at the moment so maybe this was already posted...

    If you're running a multi-monitor setups and you move the mouse quickly to a corner where your other monitor is it'll hold there briefly. It screwed me up a few times as I accidentally closed a window thinking I passed the mouse to the next screen.

    Extraordinary, I noticed you have 2 options listed for getting windows 10 in your guide. You might should put a brief description as which would be best suited for the person in question. More specifically downloading the ISO versus using the MediaCreationTool. Even i'm not crystal clear on this:)

    Makes no difference, just alternative ways of doing the same thing really, MCT downloads an ISO, as does the link for downloading the ISO

    Difference is, the MCT can make a USB stick for you, or upgrade the machine for you, or just download the ISO - downloading the ISO is if you want to create a USB or DVD manually

    @ BetA,

    I can't find info on what exactly the "Remove Windows 10 Spying" is doing or removing. Is there a complete list of this?

    Thank you for this thread.

    I'm hoping someone can help me.
    i have MPC-HC pinned to my taskbar and i pin a variety of shows to it,unfortunately it only has a limit of 11 items pinned and recent.
    Is there any way that i can increase that amount to 20 recent items?
