XP-AntiSpy 3.96-7

Posted on Wednesday, January 16 2008 @ 12:58:06 CET by

xp-AntiSpy is a little utility that lets you disable some built-in update and authentication 'features' in WindowsXP. For example, there's a service running in the background which is called 'Automatic Updates'. I don't know what this service transfers from my machine to other machines on the internet, especially the MS ones. So I play it safe and disable such functions. If you like, you can even disable these functions manually, by going through the System and checking or unchecking some checkboxes. This will take you approximately half an hour. But why wast time when a little neat utility can do the same in 1 minute? This utility was successfully tested by lots of users, and was found to disable all the known 'Suspicious' Functions in WindowsXP. It's customiseable, but comes up with the Default settings, which are recommended.

  • At the first run you will now be aske if there should be created a profile of the system settings, so you can always see, what the settings where before you executed the xp-AntiSpy. After that you can find the created profile in the profiles menu
  • The ckeckmarks in the checkboxes will now be shown/hidden only by a click on the checkbox icon. This prevents accidential de/selection if you click on the text of the setting.
  • Bugs in the times server dialog fixed
  • Now the whole application is compiled using unicode. This was to some issues in different translations.
