    How do I block AmazonAssistant ? Keeps installing after removal


    I have no use for the AmazonAssistant. I went into cpanel and uninstalled it. Next day MS reinstalled it. It is using up space and ram. I would like for it to go away and stay away.

    How do I stop this program from being installed ? I have Win 10 Home 64-bit.

    Thanks !
