Re: Simple to disable

Can you expand on this, posting some instructions for those of us who don't know what the "getwx" folder is or where it is?

Though if Microsoft is willing to change registry entries every 12 hours to prevent those who change them to try to stop Windows 10, and has made this folder undeletable, I'm sure if this method catches on they'll have that folder recreated when missing, or "better yet" make Windows 7 machines check for that folder on boot and blue screen with some cryptic error if it is missing.
