If you have upgraded one of your machines to Windows 10, here's a few items to think about locking down. First, head to Settings/Privacy. There you will find no fewer than 13--yes 13--different privacy settings screens. The major settings are under the 'General' screen.

Microsoft claims it doesn't link this ID with your name, email address, or other personal information.

Windows XP users may be using an operating system that’s over 12 years old, but Microsoft is still writing security patches for them and sending them out via Windows Update.
