I don't care what SmartScreen sends to Microsoft when it is turned on. But does it do this even if SmartScreen is turned off?
That's a good question. I remember times (probably a decade ago) when folks have discovered, that they (and therefore anyone) can see their browsing history in IE6 and start asking m$ how to make sure, that computer does not collect it. Response was simple - you don't want to see history - we will not show it to you. And they made collected stuff just hidden from the users ... until some have discovered that and asked - WTF??? Finally m$ did it right and started actually removing history data, when users explicitly asked for it (and not just hiding from their view)... The history tends to repeat itself. Remember that?--
Keep it simple, it'll become complex by itself...
