  1. the thing you need to disable is the “smart screen”… it checks the apps and makes run the store… the problem is not de store… the problem is the one who makes it run… and that my friends… is the smart screen

  2. I was really tired of such “Gpedit.msc” shits on youtube , this one is perfect. using 10 items to block is enough for me , thank you Bro
