Sorry in advance for being a bit hotheaded.
Why is it that Windows 10 (Microsoft) is forcing these services down my throat when they have absolutely no reason to be running?
They have absolutely no reason to be running.
The GameBar Presence Writer causes my games to have Microstutters - My only fix is to manually close down the service everytime I start a game. If Im playing games like League of Legends that means me shutting it down before each individual game, cause it starts by itself.
The other one GamingServices and GamingServicesNet (show up under Service Stub). These two are impossible to close as they just keep re-opening themselves.
Yes! I have tried disabling them in services.msc (they are greyed out). Yes I have tried going into Regedit. Yes I have disabled all Xbox/Gamebar settings in Windows and uninstalled what I could.
(No - None of these services are vital for the games to run)
It's also impossible to get an answer from Microsoft. I keep getting "volunteers". Why is it so hard to get an answer to why Microsoft/Windows is forcing these files to run on my computer? If Linux was optimized for the games I play I would switch
in a heartbeat.
