    Hi folks
    I don't really understand what the fuss is about

    I'm running Retail x-64 W10 Pro
    I NEVER get anything from the Ms store
    I'm running things like PLEX, Photoshop, Office 2016 (retail) etc.

    I don't like Edge or Cortana (or any voice operated app)
    I don't use the cloud

    So what's the problem

    I've rarely seen any AD on Windows itself -- on User stuff downloaded from the net --well that's not really Ms's fault is it.

    Cheers

    I have done two clean installs lately, 1 for my new machine, and another to a 10 Pro N version(so I could use the normal Pro retail key on my new PC) and this damn ad shows up in them too!!!
    I have sent feedback a few times, but....

    I agree completely! Same experience here. On multiple computers.

    Hi there
    I did say in my post I don't like Cortana or ANY voice operated apps.

    With so many people totally disregarding respect for other people (not often intentionally because often people don't realize it these days) why on earth would you want a Voice operated app unless you were alone in a bleak apartment 74 floors up above the Thames / Hudson /Seine etc.

    I find it often annoying when you walk into an office and somebody in the opposite desk enables NOISY clicks on their phone / computer -- surely a bit of respect to other people around you should be in order -- plus of course those "managers" yelling like the old Drill Sgt in the army in their phones not to actually speak to the party on the other end but just to think they are "asserting their authority"

    I'm glad I'm coming up to retirement -- Office (or any sort of etiquette) just seems to have gone out of the window -- surely if you are opposite someone you should co-operate in behaviour in noise etc --and as for Stinky Foods at desks -- In my younger day NOBODY ever ate at a desk -- especially all that stinky fish / egg / burgers. That's what LUNCH BREAKS are for -- and if you haven't got time --well are we going back to SLAVE LABOUR in Century 21. !!!

    Cheers

    Nope... Just two floors up from the street, but you got the rest right
