    One is telemetry which is disabled if you're using my ISO. See Message routing service, Push notification services also.

    I can't quite remember all the tweaks I've done before, but I've always had my notifications quickly cleared (like how Windows Defender notifies me to turn it on or something) after it pops out.

    Quite recently, I did some tweaks using the GP editor after looking at some posts by some of the valued members here. I specifically deactivated Windows Security Center with it, but now, its notification to turn it on won't clear right away like before. What did I do wrong this time?

    Ok amazing thing happened, It now works all on its own, I have updates turned off via WUMT. I just started it up and now it shows notifications and the calendar when I click on them, I did not make any changes in the system. o_O:rolleyes::eek:

    How to stop Windows 10 from installing sponsored apps:

    When you install Windows 10 Home/Pro, it will by default install all Candy Crush and all sponsored content. You can disable that by adding the following registry keys via Command Prompt. (you must restart after applying the following tweak)

    Copy/Paste the below code into a blank notepad and save it as: Disable Sponsored Apps.bat (or simply download the already created file)

    Code:
    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 "SoftLandingEnabled" /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\Subscriptions" /f
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager\SuggestedApps" /f

    When you install Windows, you shouldn't be connected to the internet. If you are connected to the Internet otherwise Windows will auto install all the sponsored apps in the background.
