    WSService is definitely stopped. Store is still on in processes.

    I found Store in windows firewall and blocked it. In app history it shows just 1.3 MB of network usage but it still loaded those 50 MB in the RAM and made a spike in CPU and HDD usage... Windows update is still working tho.
    So that plan ended in failure...
    Any other ideas?

    Windows update is still working tho.
    Windows Modules Installer should be set to manual.
