    Anti-spyware--O&O Shutup 10

    Does anyone know of this software or used it? It claims to give the user access to Win10's internals so some of its features may be simply managed by the user. It must operate similarly to GWX.exe, but looks a little less complicated to me. Thanks

    It looks fine to me but I don't yet have much experience of it. I think it looks much more complicated than GWX but this is because it's doing a completely different job.

    GWX Control Panel is to prevent the nags and/or installation of Windows 10 on devices running earlier versions of Windows. By comparison, O&O ShutUp 10 is for use on devices which already have Windows 10 installed and whose users have concerns about privacy and/or security.

    There's a lot of options to choose from - 69 of them - which means a lot of scrolling. I would have preferred a tabbed interface to spread the options across the screen more... but that's just my opinion. I do like the amount of information that appears as each option is clicked (although it's a little disappointing to see basic spelling errors).

    For example:

    I haven't had a lot of time to play with the app yet but it appears to be a very good alternative to a large number of registry edits.

    Have a look at Another "all in one" Privacy tool by... to see a similar app.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks so much for providing the identity of an alternative to consider.
