Quantopy Windows Module

Collects and securely sends detailed data about Windows computer usage. This was for a project where you could sell your usage data to companies instead of third parties profiting from you.

The core is written in C#, while some parts are written as native DLLs for finer control and efficiency. A lot of Windows internal mechanisms are used for querying different data, such as WMI, COM and standard Win32 API calls.

One scary take away from this project was how much data you can collect on Windows when running as a normal unprivileged app. Basically anything you can imagine and more.
