    Because they see the word tracking? Snowden tin foil hat Paranoia? Read something from a Blogger and took it for face value(usually what happens) Or just didn't look it up in services...

    In Reliability History- to "check for a solution" needs a service to collect the data and filter it (like Event Viewer) and provide the metadata Microsoft needs/is interested in. And it's sent only if one gave permission Here:

    There are about 20-30 Windows tasks running, which monitor user activity and etc.
    You can disable them via Task Scheduler, you can easily see, which are running regularly.
    The description is pretty clear, so finding them is not difficult, it just takes a little more time.
    DiagTrack service is pretty new, firstly presented in Windows 10, it has no description so far.

    Not all are related to CEIP, by installing Windows and accepting licence agreement, you agreed to share data about your computer and your activities. But compared to Google, MS has a better privacy policy.

    I have not had this one before the last optional updates were installed, no info on mine.
    But it is interesting, that your has a full name and mine shows the same way like in 10.
    When you doubleclick it, does it shows DiagTrack or a different service name?

    DiagTrack-- Maybe it was called something else earlier and was renamed for Win10 and backported to 7 & 8. I have really no idea, and you? I find most of Microsoft's explanation & description too brief and lacking, then I do fill out the "Was this helpful?" questioner and ask them what Blogger wrote this crap.

    Maybe it has got its name/description after the last set of 6 optional updates, which I am unable to install.
