    how do I fix InstallAgentUserBroker?

    I suspect it wants to update Windows apps from Windows Store. I do not want anything from Windows Store .... EVER. I do not want Windows apps .... EVER. I do not have the receipt for the Windows 10 Pro I paid USD$150 for, nor the install disc: it came from and was installed by a small store in another town, now out of business. So I cannot install WinX again unless I pay another store $150 again, and I suspect I will still have the problem with this "feature", since I do not accept automatic Windows Updates (I use standalone when I follow recommended update advice). Freezing problem started with v1703 .... and InstallAgentUserBroker was before often but not always involved. Now ALWAYS it seems. Yet Update Troubleshooter, sfc /scannow and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth indicate they fixed everything.

    I started another thread due to the freezing Total system freeze/lock-up consistantly after 5 min idle - Windows 10 Forums , but the problem now seems focused on InstallAgentUserBroker

    If your windows 10 is legit then it will be activated with a digital licence.

    Go on to microsoft website and download free of charge the windows 10 and burn to disc and reinstall if you need to.

    I have no way to burn a disc and I do not believe a new copy of obviously still-buggy WinX v1703 (incl. recent updates) will fix anything. Nonetheless, here is my slightly hidden-by-me (in Paint) Product Key and Activation.

    Also I have no idea how to find the Digital License and doing the technical things needed from a VERY experienced pro here where things can cost more than 3x as much as in USA, it will cost about as much as buying a new WinX (USD$150- for Pro) .... and I strongly suspect, still have the same or MORE problems.

    So please help me fix this one

    b.t.w., as before, after the above nonsense
    Update Troubleshooter, sfc /scannow and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth indicate they fixed everything (scannow first could not repair some corrupted files, ran dism which "was successful", then scannow found and repaired corrupted files)

Hi! I noticed that these two exe show up in my task list after about 2'30" from boot... I don't remember about them (maybe they came with the last W10 update). What they are in for? Can I prevent them from start? Thank You! Joe
