Hello, Anyone know a way to prevent Windows of logging every single thing I do? I'm getting a bit sick of the biggest meta-data hoarder OS there is. Any way of preventing it? There's nothing clean about Windows. Whenever I make, read, edit or write a file it's logged all over. Even when having a full disk-encrypted windows, it doesn't matter a whole lot because if it breaks, there's traces of everything anyway. What's the best way of having a privacy desktop, built like a tank? Virtualboxing OS images doesn't work, because on what OS are you going to run the Virtualbox? Unix won't work, as it pretty much sucks for anything worthwhile. Gaming is pretty impossible. Incompatible as hell and Vboxing games is laughable at best. Any ideas? I am trying to gather a lot of information about what software is good to use, but I don't get very far. Most browsers are horrid. Chrome is a good browser, but it's made by Google so who knows what's in it. Firefox I hear has identifying ID's built in. Explorer and Opera are horrid because there are nearly no privacy-protecting addons. Then we have basic encryption software like Truecrypt. What about filesystems? NTFS is metadata fantasy world, so pretty anti-privacy too. Nearly impossible to really get rid of files. Even Eraser, DD, Dban and Sdelete have issues. VPN's are nearly pointless too afaik. They're mostly in countries where privacy is laughed at, like US, UK, half of EU etc. It's easy for governments to trace people's habits and connections. TOR is pointless, because it's infested with honeypots and fake routers that are solely meant to profile you.
