[Release] xp-AntiSpy 3.96-2

Post by Aserone » Sat Jul 22, 2006 1:23 am

This is a nice little tool. Using it primarily to "check" that some values are correct (in my opinion) or otherwise easily apply them through the application.

Addon 8.3-compliant and uninstallable.

The xp-AntiSpy is a little utility that lets you disable some built-in update and authentication 'features' in WindowsXP.

Features:

For example, there's a service running in the background which is called 'Automatic Updates'. I don't know what this service transfers from my machine to other machines on the internet, especially the MS ones. So I play it safe and disable such functions. If you like, you can even disable these functions manually, by going through the System and checking or unchecking some checkboxes. This will take you approximately half an hour. But why wast time when a little neat utility can do the same in 1 minute? This utility was successfully tested by lots of users, and was found to disable all the known 'Suspicious' Functions in WindowsXP. It's customiseable, but comes up with the Default settings, which are recommended.

Have fun all!

Thanks for the input!

Now it's uninstallable, i've used the supplied Uninstall.exe which I meant to do from the beginning but changed my mind because it's so small. ;)

If you'd like a inf uninstall instead say so.. it could be cleaner.

Also changed the install path to %programfiles%\Security\xp-AntiSpy, don't know what I was thinking putting it in "Utilities" but link in "Security"..

Have fun!
