How to Disallow Secret “Customer Experience Improvement Program” Collecting Information in Windows 7

Did you know Windows 7 contains a hidden secret "Customer Experience Improvement Program" which collects information about your computer hardware and how you use Windows without interrupting you? The program also periodically downloads a file to collect information about problems you might have with Windows.
In this way, the program helps Microsoft improve Windows.
You would get surprised when you'll know that this program even counts how many times you have clicked on start menu, how many programs you have pinned to Taskbar, etc.
Actually when you install Windows, it asks you to participate in Customer Experience Improvement Program.
If you allowed this program to collect information or don't know whether the program is collecting information or not, here is the way to know or disallow it to collect information:
1. Open Start menu and type Customer Experience Improvement Program in search box.
2. It'll show it in search results. Click on it to launch its Settings.
3. Now select "No, I don't want to participate in the program." option  and click on "Save Changes" button.
4. That's it. It'll stop collecting your information.
PS: We recommend you to allow this program to collect information as it doesn't harm you in any way and also helps Microsoft to improve Windows.
