You don't need third party software to accomplish this as everything can be done from within Windows itself. As you might expect though this is made as complicated as possible by Microsoft and will likely break your system unless you are truly competent with Windows services and server addresses. Also, the next raft of updates will likely replace all you removed previously unless you are prepared to research every individual update and then block those you don't want.

If giving statistical data to Microsoft is such a big concern there are at least 30 highly competent Linux distros you can install for free that will run faster and safer than Windows without any added spyware.
