    How to prevent SmartGlass from auto-installing?

    Windows 8 seems to detect my Xbox 360 and it automatically installs the SmartGlass app. While I quite like what SmartGlass can do, I have no need for it. If I uninstall it, it will just auto-install again next time I use my 360. How can I prevent this from happening? Thanks!

    You might be able to gpedit and find the windows component or something like that??

    or maybe use the search options and find xbox or smartglass and change the policy??

    just a thought
