However this will turn out (for now it looks like the source not very trustworthy) I wonder if there's a small little tool you can install on a fresh Windows 10 that will let you disable all the various privacy related setting in one screen. Just a list of checkboxes with short descriptions of the setting and what feature you will lose when disabling it.

Theoretically it should be possible to do this even if MS don't provide the configuration options by patching files, but there is a ton of signing and verification which gets in the way, not to mention things like Secure Boot. Hopefully the crackers are still interested in breaking through all this and giving the masses such a tool, like they did before with signed drivers.
