O&O ShutUp10 - improve Win10 system privacy

#1 Post by webfork » Mon Jan 25, 2021 7:52 pm

From the developers of AppBuster (viewtopic.php?p=95333#p95333), O&O ShutUp10 is another Windows 10 privacy program that advertises portability.
... full control over which comfort functions under Windows 10 you wish to use, and you decide when the passing on of your data goes too far. Using a very simple interface, you decide how Windows 10 should respect your privacy by deciding which unwanted functions should be deactivated.

O&O ShutUp10 is entirely free and does not have to be installed – it can be simply run directly and immediately on your PC. And it will not install or download retrospectively unwanted or unnecessary software, like so many other programs do these days!
Status: Portable (tested v1.8.1415). Stealth: no, writes minor settings like window position and button color to appdata.

v1.8.1409 was the last version to be truly portable, it saved all its settings next to the the "OOSU10.exe" file, so it self contained all in the root directory, no idea why they switched to using appdata location, or at least give an option to use the old way.

My guess is that it's something that dotNET programs try to save incidental data to appdata as part of their runtime. Stealth dotNET seem to be rare.
