[DOWNLOAD] mPurge - Fix Windows 7/8/10 Privacy and Spying issues.

Windows Privacy Information

We all know and love Windows 10 for its great features, but it has one MAJOR flaw. Privacy.

Microsoft has the ability to watch your every move. Each keypress is logged, all your files are available to Microsoft, location, system information, and

they're even listening to you! This information is all located in their lovely Privacy Policy that you agreed too. They have access to everything on your

operating system, even when disabling these "settings" in your Privacy Settings area. This now applies to Windows 7 and 8 with a recent update.

Do you enjoy being watched?

 

What is mPurge?

mPurge is a "program" or script I compiled to forcefully block Microsoft services. You will no longer be watched.

Purge those bloody spies!

 

Features

Block surveillance/telemetry communication.

Blocks Microsofts file access.

Removes logging services.

Removes OneDrive.

 

Instructions

Create a restore point in case something goes wrong.

Disable your Anti-Virus.

Extract mPurge from the ZIP file.

Run as Administrator.

Wait until the program has completed.

Continue to follow instructions below.

 

Latest version: 1.4.3

*Not yet tested on Windows 7/8

Download | Virus Scan

Your browser WILL pick the file up as malicious because it's a batch file.

I suggest using an alternative browser to download, or disable your browsers security

to download the file. It's safe though.

 

[spoiler=Additional ways to stop Microsoft (Windows 7/8/10) ]

After you've run mPurge, visit your Privacy Settings and disable everything as a back up.

Next, run PowerShell as an Admiistrator and paste the code below. This will remove bloatware.

For Windows 7/8 users

Recent updates have allowed Microsoft to spy on you too. Here is how to remove them:

Run CMD as an Administrator then paste each line of code one by one.

For the CMD stuff, you can just make a batch file for it and paste the commands into that and it will run them all and close CMD when done.

That's what I've done. Hopefully everything goes well. I've tested it on my systems.

wow some people are really paranoid...

 

do you really think MS has enough people to watch millions of users 24/7/365? lol

do you think that they care about what you do?

 

this is basically like doing something outside and being afraid that everyone is judging you

Security also comes into this. Cortana listens to you and tries to "get to know you". I thought the same as you for a while.

I'm not concerned about a piece of code running on a PC listening to me

I dont have anything meaningful to say anyway

Plus it doesnt have a consciousness so who cares

 

Might as well be scared about my cat listening to me and watching me at night

MS perhaps doesn't, but all that data (which is enough to be identifiable, by the way) is accessible for the NSA, CIA and all other sorts of evil acronyms. 

Those agencies do care about some of us either because of history of activism, because of who we're related to, because of past criminal convictions, because we work someplace important enough to be worth monitoring, etc etc

You can keep it. Most off the apps are fine, but count as bloatware.

We know they are not physically watching you, but their servers are.

I don't think MS cares, but the government does.

could you explain how?

is the government going to look through billions of terabytes of data from everybody to see what political party they are voting for? or what they do in their free time?

 

servers dont have eyes

or a consciousness

they cant watch you

all servers do are store data

 

unless you are doing something highly illegal nobody from the government is going to care about what porn websites you visit or anything else

there are hundreds of millions of people, they cant watch everybody so they only pick a few important ones

Do you legitimately not care about all your login, financial and anything else being saved on thousands of servers that anyone can access? Everything is breakable. Security is just a wall. Not an invincible shield. We shouldn't let companies do this to us. This is a huge security issue. Not to mention the government can exploit people or businesses. You might not THINK they're looking at you, but for large companies and important people... they are.

large companies and important people should use secure systems with advanced privacy protection, tor, and maybe even one of those special operating systems that reset themselves every time the PC is turned off

 

but for a regular user none of this will ever matter

do you think a government official will email you saying youre not allowed to do xxx with your PC or something?

all login and financial information is already saves in thousands of places, as you just said

it doesnt make any difference if microsoft adds itself to the pile

 

oh and btw not ANYONE can access the stuff thats on the deep web

go ahead and try to find my credit card information if you think anyone can get it lol

Explain how what? How they collect your data? Through companies, of course. Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc, all through the PRISM program. If you loom at all of their privacy policies you can see what data they collect, how they use it, etc. They of course give that data to the government if need be.

It isn't a matter of the the government is looking at everything you do 24/7, it's a matter of that they collect your data and store it if they ever need it.

You can pretty much search anything NSA, PRISM, or Snowden related and understand the domestic surveillance issue.

You can do as you please, but that won't stop the blatantly wrong domestic spying.

That "nothing to hide" argument is bullshit.

It implies that only criminals desire privacy. Do you have curtains? Do you have a fence? Well, if you do, then I guess you're hiding something you shouldn't be doing.

The argument also has it backwards, and suggests that we are all worthy of suspicion until proven otherwise, when the law is innocent until proven guilty.

Read these: https://www.aclu.org/blog/you-may-have-nothing-hide-you-still-have-something-fear

http://www.zdnet.com/article/if-you-have-nothing-to-hide-heres-where-to-send-your-passwords/

You also search "nothing to hide argument", and understand why it is the wrong way to think of things.

its not that theres nothing to hide, its that theres no one to look

if I lived far from the city or on a mountain or something then of course I dont need curtains or fences

 

why do you think rich people who live on a private island or other distant place have houses that are made with tons of glass walls?

because there is almost nobody to look

 

and if there is someone, well good for them, they can see someone in the kitchen or working on the computer

does that mean they are going to break in now and steal your stuff because they saw you cooking in the kitchen through your glass walls? of course not...

 

if they see you building a bomb or cooking meth then they might tell the authorities or something like that

You're missing the point. It's not even about that. Privacy is privacy. It exists and every human has the right to it. It makes us ALL vulnerable whether you do good or bad shit.
