  1. TEMP folder filling up with AppX files and canot be stopped


    Yesterday I found my C: drive had suddenly filled up due to 80 GB appearing in C:\Window\TEMP. There were three types of files and about 13,000 of each of them.

    AppxErrorReport_B1874DF3-7BCE-0007-FF72-88B1CE7BD401.txt
    AppXPackaging_B1874DF3-7BCE-0007-FF72-88B1CE7BD401.evtx

    Possibly connected with previous night's WU to 1803 (OS Build 17134.407).

    I deleted all of the files and they stopped.

    But as I feared, after a reboot this morning they are being downloaded again at a rate of every second or so.

    In Services I found AppX Deployment Service (AppXSVC):
    "Provides infrastructure support for deploying Store applications. This service is started on demand and if disabled Store applications will not
    be deployed to the system, and may not function properly."

    It is enabled and set to Manual. But it cannot be stopped or disabled, at least without deleting some of its upstream dependencies, which I'm not going to attempt:

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix the issue without major side effects please?

    appx*****.tmp files won't delete in Windows\temp (Windows 10)

    Hi all. Suddenly, beginning October 22 2015, I got a batch of files called appx*******.tmp files in my Windows\Temp folder. When I try to clean out this folder, I get a message that the files are in use. Why?

    Appx deployment service seems to be running, in windows services, but I seem unable to stop it. Why is it constantly running, starting on October 22? I just figured out how to delete the Seaport nuisance constantly running, and now this.

    Anyone have an idea what's going on? Thanks!
