Disable Windows Defender (and Microsoft Security Essentials if you upgraded from Win 7 and were one of the unlucky ones whose upgrade didn't uninstall MSE as it was supposed to). Use a 3rd party AV/Security program instead. Defender may be identifying programs as malware when they're not, and I understand 10 doesn't give you the option of not doing what Defender wants to do so long as it is running.
I disabled most (if not all) of the tracking BS using Spybot Anti-Beacon. So that's taken care of.

I feel as though you are blowing this out of proportion. I've been running 10 since release and I've never had a single thing uninstalled by windows automatically.
This problem only pertains to CPUID and Speccy, that's it. There is also a well documented BSOD problem with those programs also.
Windows is not deleting your pirated movies, music, and games, either.
I have a pirated copy of Office 2013, you'd think windows would uninstall that before anything. It hasn't.
