Analyze Windows 10 traffic

Windows 10 is very chatty (even when you run things like spybot's anti-beacon and remove the telemetry garbage).

There's a great tool which allows you to analyze and view what Windows is doing and what communication is sent out:

The basic version is free. It would be interesting to perform a test on a fresh Windows 10 machine, and see how much traffic it sends out on a daily basis without disabling any of the microsoft garbage.
