Reliable data protection and disaster recovery solution.

Privacy Protector for Windows 10 helps to cope with privacy problems in this OS. There are numerous services in Windows 10 that collect private user's data of all possible kinds. This software tool helps to solve all Windows 10 privacy issues that violate a right of every user for confidential activity on his PC. The program is oriented both for private users and companies with exclusive standards of data confidentiality.
By means of a simple-to-use interface a Privacy protector user can tune his system to block the unwanted traffic to Microsoft servers. It is possible to delete certain elements of Telemetry and Data Collection system, while the rest is simply disabled. A user is able to act at his own discretion choosing the services for disabling to eliminate specific Windows 10 privacy concerns. There are about 40 services (some of them work on the background) tracking and collecting personal user data. It is possible delete, disable or block the following tools:

  • Cortana
  • Office Telemetry
  • Media Center
  • Power Efficiency Diagnostics
  • Customer Experience Improvement Program
  • Windows Search

These are only a part of services that become manageable with the help of Privacy Protector for Windows 10. It also disables Keylogger that sends all data typed on the keyboard to MS servers (that may also contain credit card numbers, passwords, personal details, etc.). To prevent the appearance of new unwanted crawlers and Windows 10 privacy spies, the program allows to disable Windows Update. This feature is also available for Windows ver. 7-8. The program blocks Microsoft IP addresses and helps to add rules for them in Windows Firewall. The most of spying programs work in the background, consuming a decent part of available system resources. That is why disabling will not only provide you proper privacy, but will also improve your system performance. Privacy Protector for Windows 10 always creates a system restore point before establishing any changes to roll back if needed.

If it'll stop Cortana, it's worth the risk. It takes up WAY too much resources!
Thanks for fixing the problem! (and for the dl)

Kicense key obtained and product installed without any problems. Started researching the options, and (like similar products from other vendors) am not at all convinced whether some things should be cleaned/disabled.

One such thing is "Do not let apps run in the background" which left me puzzled as to what is meant by "apps" -- does it mean only those apps downloaded from Windows Store, of which I have none (dislike the whole Store thing), or does it include old-fashioned background tasks (of which I have many and mange them such that there are no background taks running that I am unaware of and I want them all).

I remain a tad sceptical, and will keep an eye on any sort of disruptions to my normal daily workflow. However I do see how this product could be useful (even if perhaps somewhat disruptive) for inexperienced/unskilled Windows users.

I am now kind of nervous about using these type of products since what happened when I first used one. I don't remember the name of it, but I got it from here. The program said that it would stop Windows auto-update when you turn on that feature. That was the first feature I turned on for privacy, but 2 days later Windows pushed through an auto-update to my system. Obviously the program didn't do as it claimed so I uninstalled it the next day. I now have the auto-update feature turned off through Windows Admin tools so I am nervous about trying another one of these programs that might undo all the privacy settings I have already done.

I like that this has the ability to switch off Windows Update.
MS should have given us this ability all along, to avoid updates happening at an inconvenient time. Instead of giving us that ability, they are now going to add another flipping process running in the background - AI which will make guesses, as to when to process an update.
The next big release of Win 10 (probably called Windows 10 Redstone 5) is due later this year. I presume that will turn off many of the settings, that we have done with this giveaway. And will necessitate an update of today's giveaway.
Will we be eligible for that update in a couple of months ?
Or will we need to take advantage of the related discounted purchase of today's giveaway ($20 AU) ?
Thanks for the giveaway offer(s),

One of the options for this program is to stop apps running in the background.
It does not give me a choice of what apps to stop running. I don't want to stop my virus detector from not working in the background.

Privacy? Ask Mark Zuckerberg what privacy is. Mark Zuckerberg has been given a tennis arm of always putting that money in his wallet.

Says download key when you give up your email. Doesn't give you a key, you have to go fetch a key which apparently doesn't work (big surprise)

What they don't tell you is that after every Microsoft update, every privacy choice reverts back to the default value and one has to revisit these choice options. Worse, Microsoft changes the location of the files and these software's fail to work, unless a user gets a constantly updated program.

Keeping up with Microsoft's spying in Windows 10 is like playing Whack-A-Mole - no matter what you do, they will change things in the next 'update' to try to bypass it, and they mostly succeed.

Did you notice how your drive access light is constantly flashing since you started using Win10? Why do you think that is happening?

It has also been documented that Microsoft can easily bypass any firewall and get their accumulated data from your machine to their servers. When you write the OS, you can do whatever you please. It has been suggested that they closely monitor the volume of data they receive, and when it starts to drop because users are taking measures to block them, they issue a 'critical update' that changes how they bypass whatever you're doing to prevent their spyware from working.

There are limited options. A drastic one is to not connect your machine to the web. Others are to use Linux, or move to OSX. If you use Win10, Microsoft will get your info. Even if the machine can't connect to their server, all the data is saved and stored on your machine for the next time it is able to connect. Software solution like this one are, at best, temporary.

"This software tool helps to solve all Windows 10 privacy issues...", no it does not, most of the win 10 features are hard built into the coding and most of the disabled telemetry just appears that are disabled. Microsoft servers can not be disabled by blocking an IP address because they recreate themselves every time you start new session.
If you do not believe my statement, just run a software that shows all external connections (after you have supposedly disabled the servers) and see for yourself.
Furthermore, SoftOrbits writes so much junk files in the registries (hives) that it is possible to slow down or crash your system. If you want how much writing was done in the registry, remove the SoftOrbits with a tracking software, in my case there were 348 entries by Soft Orbits.
Keep this in mind, nobody can outsmart Microsoft, they wrote the book for deception and cover up and this software is just for your peace of mind only.

People STILL using Windows 10?

Reply   |   Comment by Terry I  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-86)

Terry I: Nope. I've quit Windows 10 and skipped through 88 Microsoft versions to Windows 98. It's more technologically elegant, runs well on my 486DX with 66MHz processor and 16Mb RAM, has the most fabulous theme tune on boot-up, and the Excite! search engine hasn't yet attempted to monetize me.

Finding out there are other totally free programs was quite useful ,as softorbits seem to have blocked 3 of my emails . Maybe because I stopped receiving all of their spam from my inbox

SoftOrbits Privacy Protector also works in Windows versions prior to 10 -- I'm using Windows 7 -- though obviously there is less Microsoft sniffing activity to block in Windows versions prior to Windows 10.

Even in Windows 7 it claims to offer these functions:
-- create a restore point
-- delete keylogger and telemetry ( whatever it finds in Windows 7, I guess )
-- delete spying tasks ( agan, whatever, no report is given on found and blocked stuff )
-- block spy domains in Windows firewall and adds to hosts file
-- remove Get Windows 10 button ( which should no longer work anyway since Microsoft claims they are not giving away Windows 10 upgrades anymore )
-- do not let apps run in the background, uh-huh ...

It also offers to:
-- restore system ( using Microsoft's System Restore ... careful, folks )
-- disable Windows update
-- enable UAC User Account Control
-- edit hosts file ( in external editor, it calls your system default text editor as a sub-program, such as Windows Notepad, and waits until you release it before other Privacy Protector functions )

It adds ~1400+ blocks to Windows HOSTS file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc ... interesting reading.

Can you please clarify what the "Unlimited personal license" being offered today covers? Besides online support, does it just minor updates within v.4, or also includes all future versions too?

Seeing Cortana spelt incorrectly was enough to stop me from testing the program.

If you can’t write a description how can I trust you to write a program that modifies my registry?

Plenty of free trusted alternatives such as that provided by O&O.

Matthew P, me too some may say English is not their first language so we must overlook even bad mistakes but seeing as the programming language is English and My registry keys are defined using the English language regardless of the native language of the programmer a GOOD grasp of the English language should be considered essential to being able to take part in the global programming community especially on a commercial basis and they want authority to control services and be trusted to block unwanted features and still leave a functional operating system.
