Okay, so we are gonna look at in two versions, one is free.

What you need to do is go to HD local machine. Okay then expand that, then go to software expand that good policies expand that, then Microsoft expand that they the full screen.
So then it's Microsoft and its windows expand that the new have something called data collection okay in data collection you will not have this key this allowed telemetry. So what you need to do like dust delete that still eat can also created you will get it like this when you open are the collection for the first time so you need to create a new DWORD okay and call it allow telemetry met re-okay and make sure it has a value set to 0. Okay. Basically, you can change this by double-clicking and putting a zero their that's done at step one okay then we came close or far registry editor. The next thing we need to do is go into services. Okay we go there. Basically, once again, click on that and then Taipei and serve versus okay and there and basically open at up bring up this window. Okay, scroll down to the D areas okay and you will see okay and diagnostics tracking service, you need to disable that okay if it's running like example is running like one of the services click stop okay and then basically once that's done, the properties and their start-up type.
