    I have noticed that after some idling time, apps (not sure if it happens to specific apps) are randomly opening by theirselves.

    Today after an idling time, i noticed more RAM in use. I opened the Task Manager and I saw Store, Calculator and Mail apps running. Other day were other apps, such as Groove, Weather, etc.

    I had the same problem. Fix it by R-Click start box/Settings/Privacy/Background Apps and just turn them all off.

    Apps shouldn't be starting themselves... I've not seen that behavior before, and my guess is that this is something related to an upgrade gone awry...

    I've experienced the likes of the Store opening randomly in older Builds but, nothing in the last few Builds.

    Live tiles maybe? If so just right click and select turn off live tile.

    thanks for reply, its not live tiles, its the actual store activation on idle, i close that then its maps, tv & films or something else, its always activating on idle and always 3-4 times i need to click close to get rid, ive had enough, its so obtrusive, at least 10-20 time an evening. i hate it, dont want it, never used it, never will so i want some way of disabling store like win 8-8.1 could after running gpedit but in win 10 store not there anymore

    I think you have malware on your system. I've never ever seen anything like that on any of my Windows 8 systems or my Windows 10 system. How did you install Windows 10? Where did you get your install media from?
