    How to block windows 10 apps with a productivity program


    Hi, I'm using Cold Turkey to block certain websites, but I also have Instagram and Twitter apps that I want to be able to block them temporarily, I tried adding C:\Windows\system32\applicationframehost.exe to the blocked list but it doesn't work, any idea how I can access the .exe or another way

    :)

    Windows 10 installing progs

    I decided to take the plunge and upgrade to windows 10 from 7. I used the Media Creation Tool from MS website. It took awhile, but I am finally running Windows 10 (12-14).

    I opened the new App & Program feature to remove programs that I no longer needed. Scrolling down the list, I was horrified! Apps that I didn't install somehow magically installed themselves. Two programs stood out: Facebook and Candy Crush Soda Saga. Both programs have those tale-tale icons that they came from Windows Store (which I've never even opened). The install date for both of them were on 12-26.

    Is this a common thing for Windows 10? Or is it because I did an upgrade and not a clean install?
