The retarded windows 10 auto-download software (Updated: 2017-09-06)

Now the new "feature" of windows 10 is automatic download to your computer. There's a shitload of CRAP that microsoft decided to push into your windows without your consent. And guess what? If you uninstall, they'll install again and again!
All the extra uninstalable crap in windows 10 isn't enough, microsoft? WTF?

Well then, just stop with this nonsense, open regedit and go to this key: (Do this one and continue reading):


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CloudContent


Create a new 32-bit DWORD value named DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures and set its value data to 1


Or use this with an administrative prompt:


reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CloudContent" /v DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures /d 1 /t REG_DWORD /f

Update: Microsoft just updated the way the send you spam apps. Wonderful! Now the last register alone can't stop the spam. Here the other ones you need to change:


reg add “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager” /v “ContentDeliveryAllowed” /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f

reg add “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager” /v “OemPreInstalledAppsEnabled” /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f
reg add “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager” /v “PreInstalledAppsEnabled” /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f
reg add “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager” /v “PreInstalledAppsEverEnabled” /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f
reg add “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager” /v “SilentInstalledAppsEnabled” /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f
reg add “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager” /v “SubscribedContentEnabled” /t REG_DWORD /d “0” /f
reg delete “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager\SuggestedApps” /f

If doing this still doesn't work, try this. Some new updates will call just "Microsoft Content" is the same "Spotlight" in the link.
