    I have all Win 7 updates turned off

Erm. That's really dangerous. Yes, updates often come with privacy violations. They also come with security fixes. Hackers actually look at those fixes, and retroactively write viruses exploiting them. Because of how many people don't stay updated. I'm not a Windows fan. All my personal machines run Linux. But not keeping up-to-date with security patches, on any operating system, is exceedingly dangerous.
