xp-AntiSpy 3.96-5 Final incl. TCP/IP Patch function for WinXP & Vista

The xp-AntiSpy is a little utility that lets you disable some built-in update and authentication features in WindowsXP and Windows Vista.
For example, there's a service running in the background which is called Automatic Updates. I don't know what this service transfers from my machine to other machines on the internet, especially the MS ones. So I play it safe and disable such functions. If you like, you can even disable these functions manually, by going through the System and checking or unchecking some checkboxes. This will take you approximately 10 to 15 minutes. But why wast time when a little neat utility can do the same in 1 minute?
This utility was successfully tested by lots of users, and was found to disable all the known Suspicious Functions in Windows XP/Vista include patching the max. TCP/IP connection limit which is recommended if you use any P2P Software such as BitTorrent and Emule. It's Freeware.

Changes in Version 3.96-5 final:
- Relating to the last beta version, has been basically changed the behaviour when running on Vista.
So far, when running the xp-AntiSpy on Vista it automatically started requiering administrative rights, you recognize that by the dialog thats pops up and asks for your permission. This is part of Windows Vista and is called User Account Control. It's better to let the xp-AntiSpy start with normal user privilleges, and get administrative rights only when it's needed.
