If you are scared that you are being spied on in Windows, open command prompt, type in netstat -a -n and hit enter. Research who owns each IP you are connecting to, research the ports being used. Doubt anyone will find anything malicious in Windows 10, but Windows XP and 7 some of you will find malware that connects back to Russia and or China.

So the solution is to disable the computer basically? Turn off the camera, turn off the microphone, disable location services, disable mapping. Sorry, I call B.S. on that. Those options are for users. Phone microphones can be turned on even when the phone is off. You don't think the same thing exists on tablets. These toggles may protect from hackers but not government surveillance.

Also, this idea that if people don't want to be watched, just close your drapes and hide in your basement is a bunch of horsesh*t. As if that means the problem is gone.

Turning on your camera should not be synonymous with being spied on. Using a voice recorder should not mean you allow companies to save your voice and be tracked. Using mapping software should be for user benefit, not to track and record and log every users location at all times saved to a data center, freely accessible to the NSA on a whim.

Those privacy toggles mean jack.

I suggest YOU read further into why the mic or camera would be on before jumping into the usual paranoia of conspiracy !

It's fine if you want to believe you have full control over the your own surveillance. But while you're at it, follow tech trends, and follow the news about companies like Microsoft and Google working with the NSA to secretly collect user data. Read up on Intel's new chips being built with ability to listen to user voice right on the chip itself. Seriously when it comes to people talking about being tracked and monitored and recorded, stop with the "paranoia" b.s. as if this is all a figment of the imagination.

Paranoia of conspiracy!

What a term

A guess 911, the patriot act, the war in Iraq, the NSA, Showdown’s revelations (you know that poor guy sitting in Russia so he wont spend the rest of his life in jail) and many other instances of what amounts to a surreptitious police state.


That’s the paranoia of reason, I call it.

Here is a cookie for you.

Thanks, I hope it's sugar-free, I am diabetic.


Ya know I said "some" people, not everyone.

If it's only "some" and not all, the logical conclusion is that it's not something common to all, like the Windows version or the program version being used. Considering that JDownloader is a Java program the most likely candidate for the source of problems is the Java version used by those "some".
Could be Java versions, but like I said it rendered the programs useless for some after a while. Again not saying all people, but some. And also there are a few versions of the Jdownloader 1 also and that could be the problem.

But i do remember seeing these post mostly on warez forums people saying windows 10 gave a pop up message saying that windows detected it as a illegal application or malicious software. So really IDK? Just going by hearsay i guess.

Sorry about the cookie joke, i feel bad about that now.

Oppressive bondage? I'm not oppressed by the government, nor am I subjected to the control of the government due to my installing windows 10, nor by having a smart phone, nor by having a gps in my vehicle. Again, I've yet to have a government agent show up at my door. The only thing I can surmise from this is that the only thing reading my correspondence is a machine. A machine created to search for certain words or phrases so that it can serve up an advertisement that is directly targeted at me.

Can you explain how you are oppressed or in bondage to the state due to the use of said electronic devices?


Sure, it's called the fourth amendment.

Without a warrant based upon probable cause, the government has zero right to intrude into and search our private property.

If you don't think the current american government is oppressive, you must be young and brainwashed by a corrupt educational system.

You have Constitutional rights, and the government oppresses you by violating them pretty much every second of every day.

Cheers.

I honestly think the tools here have a hard time disguising themselves, and they don't need to. The more 'tool'-like they sound, claiming things like "if you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear" or accusations of paranoia or conspiracy, the more upset we get and run on this hamster wheel known as ATS. The best thing would be for people to leave ATS and devote that energy toward real change or awareness however they can think to achieve it.

I heard about the privacy issue with Windows 10 so I do not plan to install it. I am familiar with Katherine Albrecht's website and book Spychips. I have also posted material from it here on this website. It is a mistake for anyone to think they don't have anything to hide and therefore they are safe from the all-powerful and wise Oz.

The thing about Microsoft, Google, HP, Apple…etc., all the lousy companies I have dealt with for 30 years and like the auto industry sold the American people out for a buck believe me these guys have done the same thing…
….And for now to add to the misery index by probably being in cahoots with the NSA and other sinister organizations, have sold us again down the river of no return.

They make zillions of dollars off the American society and people and do you think they give a dam about selling American jobs overseas and bankrupting you peoples children’s future?

NO!

From Zuckerberg, Jobs, Gates and all the pampered punks, to that fraud running for president, Carly Fiorina, their infected with a disease and I don’t trust NOTHING they do.

Interesting how many people on this site refuse to accept that software can spy on us in any appreciable way...I attended a vendor presentation through an ISSA event where the presenter explained how the software can be on an enterprise network and everyone on that network would have everything they do reported(and of course If you are using company resources to check your personal email etc you can be fired on the spot) and I was totally horrified and I cannot even give more details but I also heard some people on the elevator later discussing how horrifying it was. Also it is commonly known to many techs that university or enterprise level networks may have keyloggers.

Everyone thinks laptops are the way to go. There are not a lot out there that are "gaming machines" . Laptops are not made for that.With shared ram for the video and low limits to the amount of ram that can be installed.The only ones I know are the Area 51 laptops. They are built to customer specs.

This case applies to the whole world, not just the US, so if Microsoft is seen as acting against any countries' laws they will get problems.Or do you really think all other countries will accept something like what has been said on this thread?

Have not tried it but here is software that will block most of the telemetry and phone home.

ttp://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10


O&O ShutUp10 is entirely free and does not have to be installed – it can be simply run directly and immediately on your PC. And it will not install or download retrospectively unwanted or unnecessary software, like so many other programs do these days!

Gates is involved with pushing Common Core and high stakes computer testing in the US and other countries, so why not?
