2. Use third-party software to stop spying
The one & only thing for which Windows 10 is being criticized a lot is its attempt for privacy invasion of users like us. With its default enabled tracking features, that has stretched the limits to which an operating system can go in spying users. Windows 10 is seeking data out of users to giving more personalized experience for their users. One option is to not upgrade to Windows 10, which is not really an option. Microsoft will eventually end support for Windows 7 and 8 in the next 5-7 years. 

In recent news confirms that Windows 10 is forcefully pushing updates to Windows 7 as well as Windows 8 users by secretly downloading updates for the upgrade. If you wish or not, eventually you will have to be a part of the Microsoft data Logging system when you choosing windows 10. If you have to be a rebel then, choose Linux.

3. Change the bandwidth limit to Zero
Since windows 7 to 10, by default, reserves 20% of the internet bandwidth for the system applications and their operating system, you cannot browse or surf on the internet with 100% internet speed connection. But with this solution speeds up the dropping internet speed by trimming down the bandwidth which is reserved for Windows 10 AU and system applications.

Bandwidth term is used for the range covered for data transmission between an upper range and lower range, which is controlled by Internet Service Provider (ISP). However, Windows OS provides a certain configuration to limit reservable bandwidth limit. Windows 10 OS, by default, keeps some amount of bandwidth for Windows application and operation requirements. You can limit the receivables bandwidth from the Group Policy editor.


1.  Press Windows + R shortcut key to open Group Policy Editor from Run Command line
2. Then type in Gpedit.msc  (make sure you are logged in with an Administrative account) -->>Press OK to give permissions.
3.  Then, a pop-up window will open with the title of Group Policy.
4.  Click on Computer Configuration on the right side of the window.
5. Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Network >>  QoS Packet Scheduler >>Limit reservable bandwidth
6. When you click on Limit reservable bandwidth, it should open a new window, where it must be in Not Configured mode
7.  Change the mode to Enabled and reduce the Bandwidth limit value from 20 to 0.
8.  Apply and then click OK.


4.Disabled Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)
BITs, that are Transfers files in the background using idle network bandwidth. If the service is disabled, then any windows applications that depend on BITS, such as Windows Update or MSN Explorer, will be unable to automatically download programs and other information.

1. Just open Task Manager -> Click more details in below the table -> Click Services tab -> Open BITS
2. Right-click on BITS and click on “Open Services” -> select “Background Intelligent Transfer Service”.
3.  Right-click and click on properties
4.  Then under the General Tab Select the Disable in Startup type
5.   Finally, Apply -> Ok
