Want your privacy? hmmmm recapture a bit of it.....

Windows 10 has brought out to view the privacy concerns of many.   Now it appears via PC WORLD

article that even Windows 7 and 8 have updates waiting to be installed that will further those concerns....

Here is 4 of them that if you are concerned you should either not install them, as they are recommended updates or if they are already installed you should uninstall them and HIDE them from appearing again....

Here's how..... head to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall or change a program. Here, click View installed updates in the left-hand navigation pane. In the search box in the upper-right corner, search for the KB3068708, KB3022345, KB3075249, and KB3080149 updates by name. If they’re installed, they’ll pop right up. If you find one, right-click on it and select Uninstall to wipe it from your system.

Then go to Windows Update and if you see updates waiting to be installed and you also see these updates in the recommended update window right click on each one and hit HIDE....

Also please turn off AUTOMATIC want to set it to Check for updates only and to notify you so you have the option of YES OR NO..

also MS Office has tracking capabilities....
If you use Office’s default settings, it signs you up for Microsoft's CEIP. How-to Geek has a tutorial explaining how to disable it, though if sending information to Microsoft before didn’t bother you, this new update probably won’t either.
