Microsoft Edge tracks Duckduckgo users

Q: Microsoft Edge tracks Duckduckgo users

Firstly, my home page is set up to open in Duckduckgo but it opens in Bing nevertheless. Microsoft Edge sets automatically its default search engine to Microsoft edge and does not allow to reset it to DUckduckgo. Secondly, even if I use Duckduckgo, Microsoft
Edge tracks my loggings. I keep deleting the logging but is there a way to remedy it? Is there enough users to file class action suit for violating users rights ( select engine and privacy issues). Some engines allow to clear all search history upon closing
the browser. Microsoft Edge does not provide this option. Although, Microsoft implies we are using Ducduckgo, they blatantly track us. Where the data go? To NSA?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Facebook may not be planning to shut down your account or charge you, but that doesn't mean that they aren't doing some things that you might want to be concerned about. Say, for example, tracking users even after they log out of the site.http://techland.time.com/2011/09/26/facebook-cookies-work-even-if-youre-logged-out-for-your-own-good/Dave Winer wrote a timely piece (see »scripting.com/stories/2011/09/24···gMe.html) this morning about how Facebook is scaring him since the new API allows applications to post status items to your Facebook timeline without a users intervention. It is an extension of Facebook Instant and they call it frictionless sharing. The privacy concern here is that because you no longer have to explicitly opt-in to share an item, you may accidentally share a page or an event that you did not intend others to see.http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r26358775-Facebook-Cookie-Tracks-Users-Even-When-They-are-Logged-OutThis is how Facebook tracks youFacebook 'euthanising privacy', but denies tracking users What Can I Do About It?

While in Edge the favorites are available but when I go to the default folder they are not listed. Is there another location they may be being saved or has my default location somehow been changed?

Hi there.
Just wondering if there are any SKY GO users here --I love it for UK football (Premier league on Sky sports).

However because it still uses Silverlite security one is forced to continue to use IE11 (although I believe there are some unofficial workarounds to get this stuff to work on Google Chrome).
The Android app works fine but you can't cast to an external screen (Mirroring gets disabled) so you are forced to use a browser on a PC for relly nice HD pics.

SKY don't even seem to realize that W10 even EXISTS - and that's using UK call centres - once you get transferred to an Indian call centre - then it's another whole Ball game : "What's SKY GO -- We don't have any information on that Service " !!!.

Can't understand the logic here -- a service people will legally sign up and PAY for puts so many obstacles in the way of legitimate users accessing the service compared with some "Pirate streams" which work instantly without any mega problem that I often use these "Alternative streams" even though I am quite happy paying for the legal service.

Cheers
jimbo

Hi. I have Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro 2.0 and Line 6 Tone port ux1. I've managed to get my TAPCO mixer to record on two separate channels through the sound card input on Cakewalk and one separate guitar on a third channel through Line 6 USB software input. What I'd like to do is record one more separate channel using the Line 6 software (gearbox) through the "line 1 and 2" source select. When I plug in two guitars into the right and left inputs, the gearbox software shows independent signals from either line in. The sound from both guitars can be heard, however only one guitar is recorded in both selected channels in Cakewalk. Is there a way of sending two separate channels out of gearbox through the USB?

I am looking for a way to set a default homepage in Edge, that is set initially to a custom homepage when users first launch Edge, but that is not enforced and allows them to change it, and then it is not changed back. For IE11 we use a group policy preference
that is set to run one time only and that works perfectly for this in IE11.
I am aware of the Administrative template GPO setting Microsoft Edge>Configure home pages, which does work to set the homepage in a enforced manner, but this does not allow users to change it.
I see many technet and other threads from 2015 with people trying to accomplish this, but none where someone actualaly found a way to do it, there seems be a set of protected registry keys don't don't allow you to change them and have it work. It seems very
odd that Edge is the latest and greatest Microsoft browser but that it lacks so many basic management features for customization.
Now that is is 2017 is anyone aware of a way to configure this in Edge using group policy preferences, registry keys, scripts etc? Anything that can be automated for a large number of Windows 10 systems?

Hi, I downloaded thisusu's jrt and scanned. while scanning, it usually scans and remove the PUPs and malware. I recently tried duckduckgo browser, and searching instead of google search engine, which is storing all the private information. But, after scan, this search engine was removed by JRT. As I downloaded most programs from Bleeping computers, I raise this query.
                                  It seems that thisusu only recognizes the ie,firefox and chrome browsers and removes any other browsers. Of course, the duckduckgo, does not have a separate browser but I think it is a harmless browser, unlike Babylon , incredible , or mysearch browser hijacks. Would any one throw light on it. I do not know how to write in thisusu.org.

A:JRt removes duckduckgo. Why

Hi, I wish to add that the author of the tool has conveyed to improve this in his next version. But i have now a doubt, How to limit the browser of this tool to check the browser. I had the experience of having unwanted browser hijacks, from many of the injected browsers from downloads from different site, including cnet, (even if i select custom installation)
                                            I normally use this tool to remove unwanted PUPs. I do not want thisusu.org to allow the search engine, which they actually do not have like duckduckgo. They occupy a place in the search browser either in ie, ff and chrome as i have already mentioned. What i want to know, whether this search engine is also a kind of PUP or not. that is the crux of the matter. If i say that inclusion of this kind of behaviour, then browser hijackers which are controlled by this wonderful program would attempt to enter thro the exception of so such browsers. I do not know, how thisusu sends a mail to me instead of writing in this forum. This will help many.

Good evening.

This problem started tonight. My laptop was running fine last night. Today, I noticed that the fan was working hard without stopping. After checking Task Manager, I saw that the CPU usage was 100%, while on idle without any programs running. Running Malwarebytes didn't work, so I tried it on Safe Mode, which came up with nothing. I ran online scanner ESET, also nothing. I ran AdwCleaner and it came up with a PUP. I chose to clean it and it gave me a report. I ran it again but the PUP still came up in the results.

And any address bar internet search is using a "DuckDuckGo" Search engine which I never installed.

My Microsoft edge program tries to open then closes?
 

A:Microsoft Edge

Edge is a "work-in-progress", or if you want to be really honest it is Beta software that MS are getting users to test.

You may want to stay with IE or Firefox until Edge grows up and becomes a mature product.

While being online, a screen popped up with information stating that we needed to call 877-884-6922 because the computer was locked because our IP address had been compromised.


We have tried to shut down and reboot and as soon as you open Microsoft Edge, the same screen comes up, yet you can go to other Internet sites such as Facebook from the Desktop.

The URL address on the top is:  err0r-fkld-dv0f-22-0x00009898.website/index.html

Is there any suggestions or advice on whether this is for real or some type of scam and how to fix it?
