I know right? This is absolute madness. It's all because they are able to get away with it due to there being more ignorant people than those like us who actually care.

I have mine set to, "Never check for updates." OP, do you have yours on to also monitor new updates so that you can add the bad ones to the next update of aegis_v1.x? For everyone else, it's best to just keep it to, "Never check for updates?"

Great work! - A few questions...(I hope this helps those who may seek this info in the future.)

1.) Upon every new release (updated version...ie...aegis_v1.5 etc...) do we just follow the same instructions for install and it'll overwrite the previous v1.4 changes? (Rhetorical I know, but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else that needed to be done per upgrade.)

2.) Currently on Windows 8.1. Is this the best 'newer' windows version to be on? If not, what is the best version for privacy/security junkies who don't care about the bells and whistles, that just want a windows machine for basic computing? (I need windows, unfortunately, for work.)

3.) Does Windows 10 have any potential in the future to be able to run without all the crap they've put into it? The reason being, "...is it worth getting the free upgrade while we can before it's not free anymore?" Or forget Windows 10 all together, because it's only getting worse?

4.) What virus software do you personally recommend? (Kaspersky? Bitdefender? Avast? McAfee (Now that Intel owns them, is their DeepSAFE hardware assisted based protection for the i3, i5, and i7 chips have an edge over the software based protection of the others?)

5.) Any other tweaks you'd recommend (settings) to protect our privacy even more? (Aside to turning off the obvious stuff in settings, but it won't hurt to includes those.)

6.) What browser do you recommend? I've been using Firefox with a bunch of plug-ins like ublock, NoScript, Ghostery etc... and of course with the unnecessary things 'unchecked' in the browser settings. Is there a better option?

Thanks a million! Let us know how we can support you! What you're doing for us all is priceless.

It's great to see your work going strong. Thanks again for this great tool.

I just did a fresh Windows 8.1 Pro install on my new laptop and have not installed any updates. Is there really a need to install any updates? Wouldn't I be better off running this script and ignoring all the unnecessary updates? There was only one update that I needed which was a framework of some kind for a program that I use, but other than that I have yet to install any updates and so far so good.

From my experience, updates seem to do more harm than good as the majority of them if not almost all of them are all rubbish and just another invitation for M$ to intrude in on your privacy.

Why update? I've been curious and would appreciate it if someone could chime in to comment on this. (Aside to the obvious benefits of 'some' updates, I'm wanting to know, why not just do a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro and just call it a day?)

Thanks for the reply. Would you happen to have a link to where I can get a list of "approved/safe" updates? Call me crazy, but I would much rather install the good updates one by one as oppose to the shotgun effect of infecting my system, only to get rid of it with the high likelihood of leaving behind M$ parasites. I've been following various forums on Pro security minded folks like us and it's without a doubt interestingly strange how there are more and more problems after the new updates, where updates would just magically appear after deleting them; possibly through the back door that we don't know about that was planted in the systems during what appeared to be a harmless update. M$ is tricky and I don't trust them as many of us don't....I would greatly appreciate your input on this. Oh and that list of, "good" updates, if you know where it can be found, that would be great to avoid cross referencing them...Cheers

Is Windows 7 the best version in terms of not having all this data mining, key to your personal life, giving them rats all your sensitive info on a silver platter etc...? Is Windows 8.1 ok? Does running your amazing script put Windows 8.1 on par with 7?
