Default Windows 10 safe for stealth?

Hell Dear Aspkin Forum Contributors,

I know this is quite the noob question but I have asked a few account sellers their opinion and have split responses.

To use Windows 10 for stealth with separate user accounts, is it safe for ebay and paypal or do we need to make certain settings or not use it at all?

Thanks!

OS doesn't matter much for stealth. You'll be fine with W10

Lets put it this way.

Each mainstream Web Browser such as Firefox, Chrome, Opera (and even most alternative browsers) store cookies, flash cookies etc buried away within sub directories in the Appdata folder on the C drive. These are generated and separated for each individual User Account created.

This is true on all Microsoft Os's including W10.

I use W7, but there should be no issue with W10.

Yes, W10 has more spyware.

The issue is can W10 link accounts any easier than other Os's?

I personally would say no, however I do not use it for stealth at this time.

I had two account sellers say they would never create accounts with windows 10 for stealth. Two others say they do it just fine with no worries.

So the question is that windows gathers massive data like facebook and google and the fear is that is somehow would get shared with paypal or ebay?

Again, all commercial OS sends diagnostic telemetry to its vendors. This data is anonymized and does not contain any personal information or your personal files. They solely serves the purpose of helping Microsoft to improve its OS.

Unlike FB, MS does not generate their primary revenue as an advertisement platform, so it's very unlikely for MS to be selling your personal information through Windows telemetry. You really should not worry much when using Windows 10 for stealth.

Shouldn't be any issue using windows 10.
However, I find that switching between accounts has been made to be a real pain in Win10 which is pretty much the only reason Im sticking to Win7 at this point. No idea why they messed around with that aspect of the OS and made it far worse than the simple way it was in Win7... a shame realy.

Been using it for over a year, no problems, however I've turned off as much of the spyware as possible.

Why would you risk a spyware when you can have W7. Doesn't make any sense...

I don't see any issue. While I haven't used windows 10 for my eBay accounts
I don't think this is an issue as long as you seperate them by user accounts.

I'm using W10 for stealth and much as I loathe it I've had no issues. Though I believe my stealthing isn't as wide or as frequent as other members here. I only stealth eb.ay and et.sy and I've never had any of my eb.ay's or pay.pal shut down.

To be honest the only reason I would say avoid 10 is because of the many issues I've faced as a general user. There have been times where it's decided it suddenly doesn't like my ethernet cable, it's uninstalled printers after updates, switches off my usb ports and changes the keyboard from english to american quite regularly.

I really don't know what w10 is capable of when it comes to messing up my sh*t but it has been the worst pc experience for me ever.

I cant load half my printer drivers on windows 7. The print spooler has a star rating of 1 for this reason.

I do use 8 just fine and XP on my shipping dedicated desktops.

I asked this question because my better half purchased a cheap SSD laptop and it came with 10. she loaded up two of her accounts and will be using those two just that way. During the process it acted very odd with email linking and the uder accounts themselves were near;y identical even though it was renamed. It was an easy fix but got me thinking....so I asked some people on here and had mixed results and then posted up this thread.

Other than that I have no desire to use windows 10.

(for win10) : Use these tools to disable all that. Editable for each user profile, too.
