How can Windows 10 send information out of our systems and not be intercepted by the latest version of Comodo Firewall?
Slui.exe used to be the Windows activation file. Comodo intercepted it on Windows 8, and we could block it and therefore block Windows activation. We would do this so we could choose WHEN to activate Windows.
I started a thread asking how to block Windows 10 auto activation and was finally told that it cannot be done by a Microsoft forums moderator.
People have A LOT of incorrect assumptions about this. Many
Do not know that once you activate Windows 10, your machine ID is stored in the cloud and thereafter even if you FORMAT and FRESH install on a blank partition, the moment Windows 10 fresh installation gets connected to the internet it activates Windows 10 based on your previous activation which is permanently assigned to your machine. This happens without you entering ANY keys or ANY email addresses in Windows 10.
Do not know that previous methods to turn off Windows auto-activation do not apply to Windows 10, only previous versions of Windows. Articles on the internet that claim this can be done on Windows 10 are not correct.
Offer workarounds such as Sysprep, Audit mode and other complicated methods to delay Windows activation. That is not the question however.
The question is why and how is Comodo Firewall not intercepting Windows 10 phoning home? If it intercepted Windows 10, then we could activate Windows 10 WHEN we wanted (a few days after setting everything up and making an image so that the image does NOT contain activated Windows 10, for example.)
This question is not about messing with Windows activation but simply about allowing us to activate Windows 10 WHEN we want.
This is not a thread about merits of the Windows 10 operating system and what people think of it, please no rants about that, I am just trying to find out why Comodo Firewall does not intercept all information being sent out of our systems on Windows 10?
Comodo should intercept ALL information being sent out and let us choose whether to (permanently) allow it or not.
If there is a setting that needs to be adjusted for that to happen, can you post what that setting is?
