thEvery sane person worries about privacy issues online. IMHO, Win10 causes legitimate privacy concerns. However, there is the “tinfoil hat brigade” that IMHO takes things way too far. I haven’t wanted to jump the gun on addressing these issues. This sites first rule of tweaking has always been “Primum non nocere” (first, do no harm).

win10_logoThis info isn’t new, I didn’t discover it, and it’s all over the web.
It’s been out for months, I don’t know who found it first or I would give them credit.
I’m using it, but it isn’t for everyone. I’ve posted pics below. Notice the title bar is hard to read.

win10_logoCumulative Update for Windows 10: August 5, 2015
This update includes non–security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements.
Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3074683). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer.

I counted over 3,900 files in this package.
To manually run Windows update in Win10:
Go to Start > Settings > Update & security > Windows Update > Check for updates.

thOn attempting to clean install Win10 on a laptop I got lazy and I failed to follow my own advice.
I usually disconnect all drives except the one I’m going to install the OS on and run diskpart to wipe. I didn’t this time because I was too lazy and didn’t feel like spending the time to disconnect my second SSD. I got the error 0x80300024 during install. I Googled it and apparently this error has been happening for years. The fix?
Disconnect all other drives and attempt the install again. That’s it!
