  1. I have windows 10, never installed any bundled apps, always unchecked any boxes for programs I do not want. I have antimalware bytes, run it daily, but it never finds anything. I have found all kinds of Istream registry entries, which appear to be related to NVIDIA, but nothing will remove them, security firms are not finding any threats, but they have been streaming everything from my computer for a very long time, including streaming to printers (sorry I do not have a printer, and I definitely do not have a 3D printer). How can i remove all of these entries if no one is finding them? I would also like to remove all of the IEnum registry entries, and possibly find whatever is still sending from the pc (using both resource monitor and tcpview even with no internet connection).
