13. 00:00:34:92 / 00:00:41:71 - here we get more apps recently added and
14. 00:00:37:92 / 00:00:47:96 - at some point it was turning out to be
15. 00:00:41:71 / 00:00:51:39 - faster than us uninstalling them they
16. 00:00:47:96 / 00:00:55:02 - were actually coming it was like magic
17. 00:00:51:39 / 00:00:58:32 - mushrooms popping up anyways okay that
18. 00:00:55:02 / 00:01:00:92 - out of the way um a few different ways
19. 00:00:58:32 / 00:01:04:14 - our original technique which we
20. 00:01:00:92 / 00:01:08:15 - announced about a year back was to
21. 00:01:04:14 / 00:01:13:61 - basically go over here okay which is
22. 00:01:08:15 / 00:01:17:46 - there and then type in firewall go to
23. 00:01:13:61 / 00:01:24:04 - the advanced security version and then
24. 00:01:17:45 / 00:01:26:96 - go to inbound rules find the store okay
25. 00:01:24:04 / 00:01:29:36 - let's just skip to the store and then
26. 00:01:26:96 / 00:01:31:76 - block it when it comes it comes up the
27. 00:01:29:36 / 00:01:34:79 - box with the green thing okay with the
28. 00:01:31:76 / 00:01:37:31 - tick pop so we just click block do that
29. 00:01:34:79 / 00:01:40:77 - and then do the same for the outbound
30. 00:01:37:31 / 00:01:43:28 - you'll find two or three stores over
31. 00:01:40:76 / 00:01:44:54 - here those stores over there we just did
32. 00:01:43:29 / 00:01:45:89 - the same thing double click on it and
33. 00:01:44:54 / 00:01:50:27 - click block connection
34. 00:01:45:89 / 00:01:55:34 - okay this worked in previous versions
35. 00:01:50:26 / 00:01:58:34 - okay then there was another system
36. 00:01:55:34 / 00:02:00:29 - setting that you could do okay and I'm
37. 00:01:58:34 / 00:02:03:56 - just going to bring up this notepad so
38. 00:02:00:29 / 00:02:06:97 - because it's a little bit lengthy but
39. 00:02:03:56 / 00:02:11:06 - all you need to do is just go in to read
40. 00:02:06:97 / 00:02:13:78 - edit okay and it's
41. 00:02:11:06 / 00:02:15:77 - right over there click on that it will
42. 00:02:13:78 / 00:02:19:12 - ask you to run as administrator and now
43. 00:02:15:77 / 00:02:23:51 - we need to find this location okay so H
44. 00:02:19:12 / 00:02:26:65 - key local machine there we go just go
45. 00:02:23:50 / 00:02:31:34 - there and it's software policies
46. 00:02:26:65 / 00:02:37:25 - software then policies then it's
47. 00:02:31:34 / 00:02:39:80 - Microsoft and it's windows ok let's just
48. 00:02:37:25 / 00:02:43:38 - make this bigger so we can all see where
49. 00:02:39:80 / 00:02:47:50 - we're going okay then it's Windows and
50. 00:02:43:38 / 00:02:52:56 - then if you don't have a cloud content
51. 00:02:47:50 / 00:02:56:91 - like over here you create the key okay
52. 00:02:52:56 / 00:03:02:18 - so you just click on windows click new
53. 00:02:56:91 / 00:03:04:18 - key and then give it that name ok now we
54. 00:03:02:18 / 00:03:09:08 - click on this there's nothing in there
55. 00:03:04:18 / 00:03:11:50 - what we need to do is add a D word with
56. 00:03:09:08 / 00:03:17:20 - this name to it so I'll just copy this
57. 00:03:11:50 / 00:03:20:38 - ctrl C and then right-click new D word
58. 00:03:17:20 / 00:03:23:98 - and then paste the name in make sure
59. 00:03:20:38 / 00:03:26:26 - it's exactly as it is and then give it a
60. 00:03:23:98 / 00:03:28:25 - value of 1 so double click it and it is
61. 00:03:26:26 / 00:03:31:15 - then you would restart your computer and
62. 00:03:28:25 / 00:03:38:13 - then that would also hopefully work
63. 00:03:31:15 / 00:03:44:45 - unfortunately ok these two methods
64. 00:03:38:13 / 00:03:48:28 - didn't quite get us all the way ok we
65. 00:03:44:44 / 00:03:51:67 - still kept getting these stores apps
66. 00:03:48:28 / 00:03:53:59 - being pushed to our computer ok with the
67. 00:03:51:68 / 00:03:59:23 - firewall if we click on the store it's
68. 00:03:53:59 / 00:04:03:04 - blocked but things still kept coming so
69. 00:03:59:23 / 00:04:06:28 - we played around with this a little bit
70. 00:04:03:04 / 00:04:09:87 - ok what's happened here ok and then
71. 00:04:06:28 / 00:04:16:78 - clicked on settings and then apps and
72. 00:04:09:87 / 00:04:19:50 - now what we found was over here this
73. 00:04:16:78 / 00:04:23:00 - little guy over here this app installer
74. 00:04:19:50 / 00:04:24:80 - he's the one that seems to constantly
75. 00:04:23:00 / 00:04:29:64 - want to keep
76. 00:04:24:80 / 00:04:34:31 - ending us apps okay so uninstall him
77. 00:04:29:64 / 00:04:37:03 - okay once he's gone life starts to get
78. 00:04:34:31 / 00:04:41:68 - better then you start installing
79. 00:04:37:03 / 00:04:47:70 - whatever you don't like another thing we
80. 00:04:41:68 / 00:04:51:88 - found is that because we blocked it from
81. 00:04:47:70 / 00:04:55:33 - in the fire world of store by setting
82. 00:04:51:88 / 00:05:00:16 - this allow apps from the store only then
83. 00:04:55:33 / 00:05:04:57 - in combination with the firewall and the
84. 00:05:00:16 / 00:05:09:52 - setting and that app installer deleted
85. 00:05:04:57 / 00:05:12:74 - uninstalled things settle down and then
86. 00:05:09:52 / 00:05:17:53 - you can happily go get rid of all of
87. 00:05:12:74 / 00:05:20:30 - these things turn off suggestions yeah
88. 00:05:17:53 / 00:05:28:94 - there we go get rid of the suggestions
89. 00:05:20:30 / 00:05:33:60 - and then you can
90. 00:05:28:94 / 00:05:36:02 - and basically unpin from start unpin
91. 00:05:33:60 / 00:05:39:78 - from start by getting rid of things if
92. 00:05:36:02 / 00:05:41:96 - it's been installed okay you'd find a
93. 00:05:39:77 / 00:05:46:91 - little uninstall button over here and
94. 00:05:41:97 / 00:05:50:18 - just uninstall it so hopefully this is
95. 00:05:46:92 / 00:05:55:31 - now solve your problem for unwanted
96. 00:05:50:18 / 00:05:58:56 - Store apps coming to you and let us know
97. 00:05:55:31 / 00:06:02:00 - how it goes so far we've been using it
98. 00:05:58:56 / 00:06:05:55 - on our Windows 10 systems and so far
99. 00:06:02:00 / 00:06:09:24 - none of the apps have come back ok so
