    France on Thursday said it had served formal notice on Microsoft to stop collecting what it deems excessive data and tracking browsing by users without their consent on civil liberty grounds.

    France's National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) said in a statement it had given the US computing giant three months to comply with the French Data Protection Act to ensure user data security and confidentiality.

    CNIL made the demand after Microsoft launched its latest Windows 10 operating system a year ago, saying media and political groups had brought the issue to its attention.

    The body added it had undertaken seven "on-line observations" to determine the extent of the problem and questioned Microsoft Corporation on its privacy policy to see if Windows 10 fully complied with French data protection legislation.

    The French indicated those investigations "revealed many failures" including collection of "irrelevant or excessive (user) data".

    Let's see what happens - other companies have been accused of one thing or the other. Google seems to be the usual target but other companies cannot be perfect all the time
