Prevent Windows 10 from sending ‘telemetry’ information

What I find amazing is that as a Windows 10 user you are forced to allow Win 10 to submit diagnostics data to Microsoft e.g. in the event of a crash. This can include very confidential information such as your open files. Only users with the Enterprise version are able to disable diagnostics permanently.

In order for you to disable Diagnostics, please add the following registry key using e.g. regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection

Create a Dword 32 named ‘AllowedTelemetry’ and set it to 0.
