    New Services and Tasks in Win 10


    Hi All

    Since the new anniversary update, it seems that Win10, has increased it's telemetry functions, and has made it even harder to disable these services/tasks.

    They have tied so many task/services together, making it more of a pain to disable/remove.

    Services are greyed out, can't change the startup type. Registry changes required to disable services.
    The amount of hacking the Registry, Services and Task Scheduler applications, has gotten absolutely ridiculous.

    Instead of listening to the users, who want all this turned off, or at least the option to opt out.

    They continue to force Onedrive on people, no matter how much they have been complaining, and telling Microsoft, to offer them the option to uninstall.

    Such arrogance!!!!

    Any help or thoughts are appreciated!!!


    • InstallAgent.exe - (How to disable?)
    • RuntimeBroker.exe - (Has been disabled)
    • SettingSyncHost.exe - Syncs settings on multiple systems through the cloud (Turned off all synching)
    • ShellExperienceHost.exe - (How to disable?)
    • sihost.exe - (Disabled)
    • svchost running UnistackSvcGroup - Several services refer to this (How to disable?)


    • taskhostw.exe - running {222A245B-E637-4AE9-A93F-A59CA119A75E}; not sure what this does.
    • Settingssync - Backgrounduploadtask & backuptask (Has been disabled)
    • CDPUserSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • UserDataSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • UnistoreSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • MessagingService_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable).

    You can block telemetry with this Spybot Anti-Beacon for Windows

    It's pretty fantastic. It adds a load of hosts file blocks.

    Services are greyed out, can't change the startup type. Registry changes required to disable services.
    The amount of hacking the Registry, Services and Task Scheduler applications, has gotten absolutely ridiculous.
    I agree, I miss being able to edit everything like in Windows XP/7. The transparency about what all of these programs are doing is pretty lacking from Microsoft. Once, telemetry was opt-in, now it's opt-out? Why? And you can't even fully opt out with the normal settings, there's only "basic"...

    EDIT:

    I found User Data Storage_32dfa in services.msc, along with User Data Access_32dfa.

    Both are un-disable-able in services.msc, they are greyed out. They probably have to do with metro apps, which since I have UAC off don't run anyway. So I want these disabled... Registry here we come!

    Hi

    Thx! for the info.
    I entered a whole bunch sites in the host file manually, cutting and pasting actually.
    Spybot much simpler.

    Yes, registry been there, done that, and now going back.

    I too miss the Opt-in days...Arghh

    At least Google and Apple, have switches to turn it all off

    • InstallAgent.exe - (How to disable?)

    You do not want to do that, it is responsible for installing device drivers.


    • RuntimeBroker.exe - (Has been disabled)

    If you say so, but this service will start, even when it is disabled. I think, it is required by the new shell and store.


    • ShellExperienceHost.exe - (How to disable?)

    Definitely NO. It handles opening Start menu, Settings and the new shell in general.


    • taskhostw.exe - running {222A245B-E637-4AE9-A93F-A59CA119A75E}; not sure what this does.

    It is \Microsoft\Windows\WDI\ResolutionHost

    If you click on "Display all running tasks" in Task Scheduler, it will show you, what they are.


    • svchost running UnistackSvcGroup - Several services refer to this (How to disable?)

    If you disable all 4 services bellow, this should be disabled as well.


    • CDPUserSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • UserDataSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • UnistoreSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • MessagingService_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable).

    MS has decided to randomize the name at every boot to make it harder to disable, but luckily it is quite easy.

    sc config CDPUserSvc start= disabled
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\PimIndexMaintenanceSvc" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\UserDataSvc" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\UnistoreSvc" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f

    Ok

    Correct, even though it's been disabled thru the registry, it's running


    • ShellExperienceHost.exe - (How to disable?)

    Definitely NO. It handles opening Start menu, Settings and the new shell in general.

    Ok


    • taskhostw.exe - running {222A245B-E637-4AE9-A93F-A59CA119A75E}; not sure what this does.

    It is \Microsoft\Windows\WDI\ResolutionHost

    If you click on "Display all running tasks" in Task Scheduler, it will show you, what they are.

    Yes, thx! and leave it alone.


    • svchost running UnistackSvcGroup - Several services refer to this (How to disable?)

    If you disable all 4 services bellow, this should be disabled as well.


    • CDPUserSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • UserDataSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • UnistoreSvc_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable)
    • MessagingService_34b1bac (What is it, how to disable).

    MS has decided to randomize the name at every boot to make it harder to disable, but luckily it is quite easy.

    sc config CDPUserSvc start= disabled
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\PimIndexMaintenanceSvc" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\UserDataSvc" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\UnistoreSvc" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f

    Yes, managed to rifle thru the registry, and disabled all the above.
    SC Config, better way.

    I've noticed on several systems that these services, are randomizing the names per boot

    Many thx!!!!

    I think you risk creating more problems by disabling what may be essential services.

    Thank you for the good advice, but how to use the above mentioned commands?
    Within a batch file or a reg file? Or...?

    I'm looking forward to reading your helpful answer.

    When I first got Windows XP, some years ago, I was horrified by all the "Services" that were running by default.

    Later I found the 'Black Viper's' website where he lists every Windows Service and what they do and whether they can be disabled, put into Manual Mode, or just left alone. I also found a way to change the way a service runs, within a batch file. That made minimizing the redundant services a lot easier than manually going down through the list..... which by the way is a LOT longer in Win-10 than it was in XP.

    Here's just a small sample of the batch file I use to 'Set Services' in Windows 7.

    @echo off
    cls
    rem This batch file will Stop selected Services and set them to Disabled.
    rem The following are a few examples of task name vs actual program name.
    rem Schedule = Task Scheduler
    rem Themes = Themes
    rem W32Time = Windows Time
    rem SysMain = Superfetch
    rem WinDefend = Windows Defender
    rem
    sc config Appinfo start= demand
    sc stop Appinfo

    sc config ALG start= demand
    sc stop ALG

    sc config AppMgmt start= demand
    sc stop AppMgmt

    sc config wbengine start= demand
    sc stop wbengine

    Windows 10 is so similar to Windows 8.1, that I still use the 8.1 batch file on Windows 10. I guess I'm just too lazy to rewrite the Batch File to make it perfect for Win-10. Maybe, someone else who has already done that will share it with us. Eh?

    Cheers Mates!

    Batch file or just copy them to command prompt as admin.

    Thank you TechnoMage, this is a very good hint!

    Dear TairikuOkamy,

    I followed your valuable advice with a batch file as admin but the service starts again with another randomized code name.
    I tried also from the hidden administrator user, but also the same.

    Have you an advice for this?
