  1. How can I discover which apps link to unnamed background apps that try to run in the...


    Hi, I have win10Pro 32-bit OS with the latest version/patches and have concerns about unknown background apps that try to run as background apps... How can I see which Apps names or processes are linked to qty 6 unnamed and unknown background apps that try to run in the background on my Laptop?


    I recently noticed that my Laptop would not go into Screensaver or Hibernation Power Mode at specified times, despite my double checking my power settings and changing them to power defaults. I suspect these 6 unknown background apps are causing the Screensaver or Hibernation Power Mode to not run correctly because the apps may be constantly running. When I look at "which apps can run in the background", there are 6 unnamed apps that I first noticed a week ago, and I turned them off as background running apps. I ran Malwarebytes and found my personal McAfee firewall was disabled and a single Malware concern running in memory that I quarantined. However, the Qty 6 unnamed and unknown background apps still try to run as background apps. Why is this and how do I delete these 6 unnamed/unknown apps?


    Are these qty 6 unnamed/unknown apps that try to run in the background linked to older versions of Win32 applications that originally ran on WinXP, Win7, or Win8? How can I be sure these qty 6 unnamed/unknown apps are not spyware or malware from 3rd party win10 apps when they are not flagged by anti-virus/anti-malware?


    Thanks for reviewing my questions, Questor

    :)

  2. Apps running in Background

    Hi JonBlann,

    Windows 10 allows some apps to run in the background even if you never open it. This would let the applications to update itself or to get you notified with what's new with the app. However, this would consume most of your battery, bandwidth, and system
    resources.

    You can refer to the steps below on how to disable apps from running in the background:

    1. Go to Settings > Privacy > Background apps.
    2. Under Background apps, toggle off the Let apps run in the background switch to disable all apps that come from Microsoft Store. If you want to disable only a specific app, then you can toggle off the switch next to the
      app under Choose which app can run in the background.

    Let us know how it goes and we'll assist you further if needed.

  3. Apple Claims Steam Link App Violates App Store Guidelines

    Here's what Valve is contending with:
    App Store Review Guidelines - Apple Developer

    The ones that stand out that may have caught Steam Link:
    So yeah, there's a lot of reasons why Steam Link would get rejected.

    App submissions and approvals is a thing between developer and Apple. Valve intentionally let this information leak probably because Apple's restrictive guidlines will never allow Steam Link to be on the store. Valve is hoping the Steam user base makes a lot of noise so Apple grants Valve and exemption. I doubt it will work. Apple loves control and Steam Link is a portal into the Linux/Windows ecosystem. Even if Steam Link were exclusive to Mac OS, Apple would likely demand Valve use Mac OS's remote desktop features rather than Steam Link.

    I'd be shocked if Apple allows it.

    Apps only run as background pocesses

    Hi Carmine,

    To manage background apps in Windows 10, you can follow these steps:

    • Go to Start menu and select Settings.
    • Click on Privacy on the Settings window.
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select Background apps.
    • You’ll see a list of apps that have permission to run in the background with an
      On/Off toggle.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Thank you.
