The 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.
Changes in Version 3.96-5:
"In the last time, many mails reached me asking about the xp-AntiSpy and its compatibility to Windows Vista. I do not have the time to answer them all, that's why i post a little update in here.
Since Vista keeps compatible to xp i do not have to rewrite the xp-AntiSpy, but there are indeed some changes.
At the weekend i had the chance to test the xp-AntiSpy on Vista. I also had the time to apply some changes, so the xp-AntiSpy would run also correctly on Vista.
