Privacy: The Application Compatibility Program Inventory must be prevented from collecting data and sending the information to Microsoft

554ca683-aaaa-43da-9a97-e093af29457e

Some features may communicate with the vendor, sending system information or downloading data or components for the feature. Turning off this capability will prevent potentially sensitive information from being sent outside the enterprise and uncontrolled updates to the system. This setting will prevent the Program Inventory from collecting data about a system and sending the information to Microsoft.

Remediation

To fix this configure the policy value for Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> Application Compatibility >> "Turn off Inventory Collector" to "Enabled".
