Windows 10 Users – Don’t Store Your Smut to My Pictures Folder

Alyson in flashing gear behind wheelYet another caution for installing Windows 10, it will create a slide show from your My Pictures Folder and automatically set the pictures as your screen saver!

A UK man found out to his chagrin this simple fact as reported on Reddit.

“Loaded up WIN 10 last night and left it on to do its thing. Woke up to wife asking why I set it to rotate all my porn images right on the desk top view. I have no idea how to shut that feature off and that computer is staying shut down until I do.

Free windows and a free trip to the doghouse. Thanks Microsoft!!!

Don’t make my mistake, keep your private pictures out of My Pictures, no matter how deep you hide them in sub folders. My wife is very happy I admitted my mistake on this sub. She said I took my medicine and she now finds it quite funny. ‘Ain’t love grand?”

Hopefully you can see where I’m going here, don’t store your smut in your My Pictures folder with Windows 10 or any other version either. Windows knows to look in that folder for pictures.

  1. This story just keeps on getting worse. Now I find that Microsoft has went back and added tracking to Windows 7 and 8 just like they have in Windows 10. Now everything you do is sent back to the mother ship and filled away in your special folder.

    Check out the story at: http://www.ghacks.net/2015/08/28/microsoft-intensifies-data-collection-on-windows-7-and-8-systems/

    I’ve created a simple batch file that if you run it with administrative privileges, will uninstall the patches that turn on data collection. Simply open NotePad and type in the following 4 lines:

    wusa /uninstall /kb:3068708 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3022345 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3075249 /quiet /norestart
    wusa /uninstall /kb:3080149 /quiet /norestart

    Save it on your computer, where it’s easy to find. I put mine in the c:\temp folder that I created and called it NoTrack.bat. Call it anything you want but make sure the file extension is .BAT so windows knows that it is a batch file.

    To run it, launch Windows Explorer, find the batch file, right click on it and select run as administrator. You need to run it every time windows installs updates unless you mark the updates listed above as not to install.

    • Update – Apparently Microsoft automatically reinstalls the tracking software when you shutdown. From my initial tests KB3068708 is reinstalled upon shutdown and you have to rerun the uninstall routine. More to come as I study this further.
