  • Description

    Small tool which disables the default threats of a Windows XP installation. Besides disabling Windows and some of its components to communicate with Microsoft servers, xpy improves privacy settings and your system’s security.

    Features:
    - Disable Windows ‘calling home’
    - Disable questionable services
    - Disarm Internet Explorer
    - Disarm Windows Media Player
    - Remove Windows Messenger
    - Improve privacy and security
    - Improve performance

    Though xpy is smaller than 60 kilobytes, it can close serious threats (i.e. DCOM) on long distance, where large service-packs can only protect you until a new security hole has been found.
