Program & Site Requests / Windows 10 Privacy Tweaker?
« on: September 20, 2016, 07:17:20 AM »
I have been researching to see if anyone had any premade registry files that will turn off all the spy garbage in Windows 10 (and the new stuff added by the anniversary update) and I haven't really found anything.  There seem to be a few adware infested programs out there that supposedly do this, but I wondered if you might be interested in adding the functionality to either Simple System Tweaker or Advanced System Tweaker.

Thanks for all your hard work!

I certainly understand that!  I know you don't want to add to the damage.

Thanks!

0.0.0.0 listed as a gateway is definitely not right or normal.

When you do ipconfig, you should see something like this:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : alltech.local
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.181
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

When this problem is happening, you'll see instead:

IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.181
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 0.0.0.0,
                                                   192.168.1.1

So that 0.0.0.0 gets set as your default gateway and your real gateway address gets set as a secondary gateway.  Your internet connection can NEVER work this way, as all WAN IP's will try to route through that 0.0.0.0 gateway, which is invalid.  My fix removes the 0.0.0.0 as a gateway, and then renew's the IP address so that your real gateway gets set as the default one.

When this bug happens, simply renewing the IP or even rebooting won't fix it.  The 0.0.0.0 gateway gets saved and reloaded on reboot.  By manually deleting it using the route command, it won't come back.

I've seen on a few computers (all have been Windows 7 so far) where out of no where there will be 2 default gateways: 0.0.0.0, and the real one that applies to their particular net connection.  Having that 0.0.0.0 gateway on there prevents access to any resource not in the current LAN.  It's pretty easy to fix:

route delete 0.0.0.0
ipconfig /release *
ipconfig /renew *

I don't how the last step would change if they have a static address, or this problem can even happen if they are on static.

I just thought it might make a nice addition to Windows Repair AIO.
