While I am at it, had not used it for years but always kept a copy of WinAmp year 2001 version. I keep a pile of MP3 music on my computer and after having use many different versions over the years, I tested out Winamp from 15 years ago and it starts fast, sounds a lot cleaner and is not full of trash that I don't want. You need to turn off any web connections as the security is not very good and you may need to go into the registry to fix how it responds to a double clicked MP3 file name (drv:\path\winamp.exe "%1") but once you have got it going it will work perfectly and sound better until the next Microsoft update that resets your preferences back to some piece of Microsoft chyte like they have done so many time and so many settings.

Visual Studio 2015 C++ compiler secretly inserts telemetry code into binaries.

A Microsoft spokesperson: Users who have a copy of VS2015 Update 2 and wish to turn off the telemetry functionality currently being compiled into their code should add notelemetry.obj to their linker command line.

The list of new Windows 10 features is long and impressive 8)

Turn off the telemetry functionality, or at least the part of it that sammies dog found.
Well Microsoft, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten us into.
