and if so, which files? :think:

Take heed which files you disable, there might be unintended consequences :)

That's a bit why I ask, since I've only used win8 for 2 weeks now. (escaped from win7 EOL)
I did install win8 on my acer laptop eight month ago, but I didn't start to use it or even installed all updates..
But now it's a must, when I'm forced to have windows for some things and I refuses win10spyware..
So win8.1 buys me another three more years to solve my win-dependent problems.:thumbsup:

Problem solved. :)

I deleted some files, renamed some folders and files.
flashplayer seems to be completely inactive....... so far, so good.
The same goes for onedrive.
