      hello all.
      I must be nuts to even consider this but taking into consideration that I love games I might be forced really soon to upgrade to win10 :-(.

      The latest blow was realizing that freesync support for nvidia GPUs under win7 is not possible :-(.

      I’m currently on win7 and if it wasn’t for games I would never consider upgrading.
      Are there any good recommended guides that you know of that can harden security/privacy if that’s even possible with the latest and greatest MS spyware?

      Some tools/add-ons to give more control ?

      Thank you.

      ShutUp10 is what I use to manage the info I share with MS. Very nice utility.

      I’m a gamer also, and the good news is I found a few older games which wouldn’t work under Win7 now work in 10. There’s lots of extra stuff for gamers in 10, which I don’t use, but you might like to check out [some are old articles]:
