    DisableWinTracking


    [​IMG]

    A tool that I created to use some of the known methods of disabling tracking in Windows 10.
    DOWNLOAD!!

    DOWNLOAD EXE HERE!!
    How to use

    You can either
    A. Run the binary uploaded to the Release tab as an Administrator and select which options you'd like
    B. Install Python and the dependencies listed below and run the script from an elevated (admin) command prompt and select which options you'd like
    Dependencies

    • wxPython
    • PyWin32
    • Windows 10 (Duh)
    Methods Used

    Telemetry

    Set the "AllowTelemetry" string in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection" to 0
    DiagTrack Log

    Clears and disables writing to the log located in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger"
    Services

    • Delete: Remove both services
    • Disable: Set the "Start" registry key for both services to 4 (Disabled) Located at "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\"
    HOSTS

    Append known tracking domains to the HOSTS file located in "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc"
    Delete Services vs Disable Services?

    Selecting "Disable" will simply stop the services from being able to run. Selecting the "Delete" choice will completely delete the tracking services.
