All of you Windows seven and eight users need to delete these "upgrades" ...
Last week came the warning, now comes the roll out.
One of the most most controversial aspects of Windows 10 is coming to
Windows 7 and 8.
Microsoft has released upgrades which enable the
company to track what a user is doing. The updates – KB3075249, KB3080149 and KB3068708 – all add "customer experience and diagnostic telemetry" to the older versions.
gHacks points out that the updates will ignore any previous user preferences
reporting: "These four updates ignore existing user preferences stored
in Windows 7 and Windows 8 (including any edits made to the Hosts file)
and immediately starts exchanging user data with
vortex-win.data.microsoft.com and settings-win.data.microsoft.com."
