      Tried that, and no changes can be saved to the service. Similarly with the other (similar) contact data/messaging service/User Data Access/User data storage. When trying to change the services to disabled they error out with “The parameter is incorrect”.

    It’s like this, Microsoft has become less then trustworthy at best, I don’t know about you but I really prefer that my PC’s do not sync to any corporation for any reason other then work, Microsoft has a proven track record for harvesting data by force (HACKING BOTH BLUE TOOTH AND WIFI CONNECTIONS) and behind the Desktop OS where no ones the wiser, except of course us 10% Super Users! Windows 10 “Violates” every privacy law in the book and I’m quiet frankly shocked that we haven’t done something about this type behavior by both Microsoft and Google sense were on this topic, and the new laws passed in Cali says we the people can’t Suit corporations WTF is wrong with this picture? We the user need to ban together and shut this shit down, before it put and end to our free society and or Country, If you look close you can see most of the people running this Big Corporations don’t even belong in this country, and are now making us in the USA look like some third world country scam artist, like Nigeria !
