Microsoft can Disable Pirated Software & Illegal Hardware with Windows 10| Rumor


News is starting to spread that Microsoft can disable pirated software and illegal hardware with Windows 10 for PC.

Section 7b of the End User Agreement or also known as Updates to the Services or Software, and Changes to These Terms states that Microsoft:

“may automatically check your version of the software and download software update or configuration changes, including those that prevent you from accessing the Services, playing counterfeit games, or using unauthorised hardware peripheral devices.”

    This was clarified to be not entirely true. MS may do it for MS titles but not necessarily 3rd party software. And I believe there was mention of merely disabling because of automatic Windows update. Unlike previous version of windows where user can choose when and what to update. Windows 10 apparently wont give you the choice about updates
