Every one is exited to get free Windows 10 upgrade because of its features , compatibility , user interface and other good features, without knowing why they make it free( May be to make it large ). Off-course it is business and nothing is free in business , there is give and take rule, no body want any kind of loss. They are uses your data, you even do not have permission to stop your updates.
Microsoft have a spy eye on each Windows 10 user. There are two reasons for that:
- They want to analyse your behavior i.e., what are you surfing on web and what kind of software you are using.
- To stop using pirated software.
Windows 10 Disables Pirated Games and illegal Hardware Remotely
Now it’s Gamer’s Turn!! Microsoft may Scan your PCs to disable Pirated Games and illegal Hardware on Windows 10. There is approx more than 70 millions users who upgraded their system to Windows 10 due to its new and awesome features such as Cortana Search, Good Bye to Passkey, Workspace etc. If you are one of them and a gamer who uses pirated games and softwares than be aware. Microsoft’s Windows 10 disables pirated games and illegal hardware/software, they can scan your system for pirated games and unauthorized hardware, and then can disables them .
The thing is you can’t complaint against them because you agreed the updated Microsoft End User Licence Agreement Term and Condition( EULA). It not only included windows 10 , there are the list of services under EULA, you can see them here. and that implies any games you’ve pirated or devices you’ve “unlawfully” hacked can be disable by Redmond.
Section 7b of Microsoft Services Agreement states that:
Sometimes you’ll need software updates to keep using the Services. We may automatically check your version of the software and download software updates or configuration changes, including those that prevent you from accessing the Services, playing counterfeit games, or using unauthorized hardware peripheral devices. You may also be required to update the software to continue using the Services. Such updates are subject to these Terms unless other terms accompany the updates, in which case, those other terms apply. Microsoft isn’t obligated to make any updates available and we don’t guarantee that we will support the version of the system for which you licensed the software.
Microsoft EULA covers Windows 10, Windows Phone, Microsoft Account , Skype ,Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox live and too many other services.
Microsoft can now block uncertified PC or illegally modified Xbox One and Xbox 360 controllers
While in Microsoft’s agreement they didn’t mention that Microsoft will also block or disables other counterfeit software such as pirated Adobe Photoshop or Office2013 .
However, recently it is confirmed that Microsoft is continuously scanning your PC to check whether you are not using pirated version of COD (Call of duty), which raises privacy concern. But it is not yet clear that which technique is using by them to caught pirated users.
This time may be because of Satya Nedela , Microsoft has Played Intelligently by launching free windows 10.update, moreover in my view Window 10 is not view even it costs a lot .
