in fact, I am considering the Lenovo Yoga Book. That article mentioned is from 2015 and they are not the only company that installs marketing utilities on computers. Have you taken a good look at Win10 operating system?

if you read the article

the article states the requirement is only for all devices, software and computers sold to banks in China.

quote...
The Chinese government recently implemented new rules requiring foreign companies that sell computer equipment to Chinese banks to disclose source code, submit to audits and build backdoors into both hardware and software, according to the New York Times.

you are trying to make something out of nothing
by renegade600 / September 2, 2016 2:13 PM PDT

It is something I am not concerned about at this time. If china was really trying to slip code into anything sold in the US, it would be found. Look what happened a few years ago with routers sold by Huawei. As I said in my first response. Take a look at win10 and all the info Microsoft is collecting about you.

My something is always our gov and Lavabit.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 2, 2016 3:36 PM PDT

My country is now NSA and now that the Lavabit story is years old, a lot more was revealed.

I'd worry about what your country can do to you rather than what I can do to my country (wait, that's not what I meant.)

BC MS is definitely much less trust worthy than the Chinese govt LOL, AND YEAH, installing SPYWARE on new computers is really nothing LMAO!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
