How to reject Windows10 telemetry in Windows7 and Windows8

Thursday 10 September 2015

See link below. Download and uncompress the zipped file, run remove_crw.cmd (as administrator), then reboot the system.

(As far as I am concerned, I found my own solution here)



EDIT - I suggest this radical solution instead.
(And yes, disable Windows Update). Next time, think of Linux.

This will uninstall telemetry-related updates (including those prompting you to “upgrade” to Win10) and prevent them from being installed again.

Unfortunately, if you already “upgraded” to Windows10, it’s too late for you [1]. However, you may block these URLs [2] in your router settings:
(1°) vortex-win.data.microsoft.com
(2°) settings-win.data.microsoft.com. [3]

Please note that Windows 10 (as well as contaminated Win7/Win8) will not obey the rules you set in the “hosts” file, at least for telemetry purposes. So, only router settings will allow to actually block those suspicious URLs.
This is the content of remove_crw.cmd (more suspicious Windows updates are likely to be released sooner or later):

Footnotes

[1] Except with this very radical solution (by default, the final version of this tool will also uninstall Windows 7 SP1 aka KB976932 as it is considered suspicious. This may be circumvented by enabling professional mode in Settings, then unchecking KB976932 box)


(Frequent updates)

[2] And possibly many others. Feel free to investigate further.
