Anti Spying mega.co.nz link

There's a warning about win10 style spyware in win7. This is good, but it contains a link to some mega.co.nz link for a solution. This has problems:

  • mega.co.nz might go the way of megaupload.com and become a dead link.
  • It's not an official website, so it's to be instinctively untrusted.

Is there an official link for this software? Everything I can DuckDuckGo references back to a ghacks.net article (lol). If the developer can't even make a github page I'd be more suspicious of his program than I would of a Win7 iso on KickAss Torrents by a trusted uploader (which all claim to have skipped the spyware updates).

Updating Windows 7 with WSUS

I have been trying to find the best way to update a fresh install of Windows 7, a way which updates your system to the current date and also avoids the Windows 10 bloat. I came across WSUS Offline Update and tried it out. It seemed to work well for me, the updates were downloaded and installed on my system without any hangups or anything.

Is WSUS Offline Update a good way to update Win7? Because if it is we should probably include it in the guide (I can write an article on it).

Here's a link: http://www.wsusoffline.net/
