  1. Yes. Same result. Zombie processes that are ignorant of the setting and will resurrect themselves right after they are manually terminated via Task Manager.
  2. The Do not prelaunch SearchUI and ShellExperienceHost processes option doesn't do anything. I have the option checked on and the processes stay in the task manager and if I manually terminate them they just come right back.
  3. Converted tomasz86's OneDrive uinstaller into an runnable script as well as added an automated services & schedules tasks command script.
  4. Holy crap. I know it's necessary, but man, talk about going nuclear.
  5. The Use libraries; hide folders from This PC options hides personal links (Documents, Videos, Pictures) on StartIsBack++ and doesn't even hide the folders from This PC. http://imgur.com/a/Rv4y4
  6. I hope we're getting close to a stable release. I can't wait to try it on Windows 10.
  7. I reflected as many IPs into hostnames as possible with nslookup. A server failure, A non-existent host, and a timeout are why the 3 remain. If there were any comments about the nameless IPs it wasn't in the Reddit thread this post started from.
  8. Expanded telemetry list and added overkill list.
  9. Huh. That's what Unchecky uses as well. What's the difference between and
  10. First, credit where is credit is due. I originally found this posted in /r/Windows10 by /u/C-Ron. I'm reposting this here for the people that don't browse Reddit so they can benefit from it. Link to reddit post that contains original guide text (as recommended by Tripredacus) First Time Setup Settings App Scheduled Tasks Group Policy Editor Registry Editor Hosts File Or continue to the pastebin link. Doesn't matter to me. And if you want, click here for a hosts file that is complete and total overkill. From what I can tell, it's a list of every Microsoft domain known to man merged with the MVPS domain list. Useful Software/Scripts/Forum Threads Also please remember this is not an exhaustive list so feel free to post things that can improve this post an I'll add it to this post and credit you. Lastly, to paraphrase NoelC: try things for yourself. Keep good notes on what you do, on what works, and save original files. The knowledge gained from the experience of seeing how things work is invaluable. 7/29/15: Changed IPs to as recommended by NoelC. 7/31/15: Expanded telemetry list and added overkill, nuke-from-orbit list. 7/31/15: Reformatted the OP, reflected as many IPs as possible into hostnames, added Techie007's post to the relevant sections, and added gpedit.msc fix for Home users. 8/3/15: Added tomasz86's OneDrive uinstaller and automated services & scheduled tasks command script. 8/5/15: Added useful software/scripts section. 1/9/16: Renamed useful software/scripts to useful software/scripts/forum threads and added stuff to it. 6/26/16: Reformatted to be readable with the new forum software.
  11. Ditto, but we are the minority unfortunately.
  12. How did you disable Cortana, Noel? I have every setting that I can find disabled and it's still in Task Manager.
  13. Downloaded the MSDN Enterprise version ISO, but I don't see way to screen updates the way you could in Windows 7 like they said you could in Enterprise. Unless it's some obscure, buried setting which, knowing Microsoft's track record, it probably is. Or they just lied through their teeth and no version can screen updates. That's a possibility too. And I'm not talking about the utility that they put out their after the Nvidia driver debacle. Microsoft talked up the Enterprise version as the only version that could screen updates with an external solution. The VM I installed it on is also very laggy and sluggish. It frequently gets to point where I have force reset the VM just to able do things again. Definitely not a very rosy experience so far.
  14. The KB article explicitly states that it's only temporary. I don't see how this changes anything. You're still only delaying the updates. You're still only changing the when not the if. I think I'll install the Enterprise version and just not deal with this. They're covering their butts. They thought people would take it lying down, but they were wrong and had to scramble.
  15. Because Microsoft forgot how make operating systems after Windows 7 and is now just coasting on their market and usage share dominance. I would be completely unsurprised if 7 goes through an XP style holdout considering how much work needs to be put into 10 just to make it useable.
  16. The only thing that's really not an incremental improvement would probably be the apparent ability to stack VRAM. Example: You have GTX 980 Ti's in SLI. Normally the machine only sees 6 GB of VRAM because each card is using its own VRAM. However, with DX12 this would become 12 GB of VRAM... apparently.
  17. The Microsoft shill is strong with this one The boot time "improvements" are because of Hybrid Start which doesn't ever shut your computer off. It never clears the RAM. It's a glorified hibernate. So of course it's going to be faster. You're not cold booting. You're only ever warm booting after that first initial startup. The start menu is infected with Metro. Lastly, what exactly are the benefits of Metro in general? No it's okay, I'll wait. If there are any good things about Windows 10, they're under-the-hood. where the average user will never see or even know about any such things.
  18. What the actual fuck Microsoft? http://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2015/06/26/free-windows-10-upgrades-danger/
  19. July's Patch Tuesday is today. Microsoft is pushing KB2952664 again and KB3065987 was served by WU as well.
  20. From a quick Google search it seems to geared more to IT pros than consumers. http://windowsitpro.com/windows-10/new-policies-julys-windows-update-client-stop-windows-10-upgrades-normal-users
  21. It is designed according to user feedback. The complacent yes-men feedback.
  22. Ditto for me as well and that might be BM's strategy as well. Waiting for RTM gives him a static platform to work from as opposed to the TP which is constantly in flux.
  23. O.O Nice job. I will be all over this upon commercial release. That's one down now I just need OldNewExplorer and AeroGlass updated to Windows 10 then I will consider using it.
  24. So I compiled all the updates listed in the first post into a list that I saved in notepad for offline viewing. Is this all of the updates that I need to remove? edit: Thanks to dencorso for the list.
