PostSubject: Microsoft Compatibility Telemetry   Tue Jul 11, 2017 10:56 am

Ok - so I was trying to figure out how my 9 year old circumvented my Norton Family time restriction last night - his computer was awfully slow - check task manager and hard disk usage was 100%. So I restarted and then it was doing the new Windows 10 big update - so I chalked it up to that... Get everything settled down, ran all malware and virus scans - all good. STILL high disk usage - like nonstop. So I notice this guy causing all the issues - Microsoft Compatibility Telemetry. Turns out a lot of people are having this issue as well. Maybe worth looking into disabling for all of us as it sends info like every 30 minutes. When I originally upgraded to Windows 10 I went thru all the custom configuration options to disable all the MS snooping bs, but it appears they're still collecting and sending info.

Here are a few posts on it...

So what exactly is sent to Microsoft and how often is it sent?  According to InvestmentWatch, Windows 10 transmits the following data back to the company:

  • Typed text on keyboard sent every 30 minutes
  • Anything you say into a microphone is transmitted
  • Transcripts of things you say while using Cortana
  • Index of all media files on your computer
  • When your webcam is first enabled, 35mb of data
  • Telemetry data

I ended up having to do BOTH of the steps outlined in this post, even having to create the registry entry Allow Telemetry under datacollection - https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/windows-10-microsoft-compatibility-telemetry-high-disk-usage-solved/

I'll check my own pc tonight....

All text typed on the keyboard is stored in temporary files, and sent (once per 30 mins) to:
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
pre.footprintpredict.com
reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com

Telemetry is sent once per 5 minutes, to:
vortex.data.microsoft.com
vortex-win.data.microsoft.com
telecommand.telemetry.microsoft.com
telecommand.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com
sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net

typing the name of any popular movie into your local file search starts a telemetry process that indexes all media files on your computer and transmits them to:

df.telemetry.microsoft.com
reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com
cs1.wpc.v0cdn.net
vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
pre.footprintpredict.com

When a webcam is first enabled, ~35mb of data gets immediately transmitted to:

oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com.nsatc.net

Everything that is said into an enabled microphone is immediately transmitted to:

oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
pre.footprintpredict.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com
i1.services.social.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
telemetry.appex.bing.net
telemetry.urs.microsoft.com
cs1.wpc.v0cdn.net
statsfe1.ws.microsoft.com
If this weren’t bad enough, this behaviour still occurs after Cortana is fully disabled/uninstalled. It’s speculated that the purpose of this function to build up a massive voice database, then tie those voices to identities, and eventually be able to identify anyone simply by picking up their voice, whether it be a microphone in a public place or a wiretap on a payphone.

Interestingly, if Cortana is enabled, the voice is first transcribed to text, then the transcription is sent to:
pre.footprintpredict.com
reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com
df.telemetry.microsoft.com
While the inital reflex may be to block all of the above servers via HOSTS, it turns out this won’t work: Microsoft has taken the care to hardcode certain IPs, meaning that there is no DNS lookup and no HOSTS consultation. However, if the above servers are blocked via HOSTS, Windows will pretend to be crippled by continuously throwing errors, while still maintaining data collection in the background. Other than an increase in errors, HOSTS blocking did not affect the volume, frequency, or rate of data being transmitted.

My kids laptops are pro and it was on there. What's showing not configured - the telemetry?
