Windows 10 updates can disable pirated games

Recommended Posts

Microsoft’s Windows 10 has met with critisism because it seems riddled with features that track and trace your every move on your computer. As I have said here, that, while the company is insisting that it was 'not spying' but simply trying to enhance the program by understanding what users do, Windows 10 is constantly collecting users’ data, sharing Wi-Fi passwords to contacts (albeit with encryption), and collects data and usage patterns exhibited by every user of Windows 10. Then we wrote here about the news that Windows 10 behaves like a true keylogger and we hoped that that would be the end of the intrusive behaviour of Windows 10. 

It wasn't. 

Accepting Microsoft’s Services Agreement, which you need to do before installing Windows 10, gives Microsoft the right automatically issue system software updates that can disable pirated software and even counterfeit hardware peripherals. Yes, you should of course steer clear of illegal stuff, but there’s something undeniably disturbing about the very idea that Windows 10 always keeps a watchful eye on the software and hardware you may or may not be using.
