    How to disable "Tell me what you want to do?" and "Share" via registry?

    They both annoy me.

    To Oz you better use your firewall to block Click-to-Run service and disable the tasks from task scheduler. Find a good firewall, like Outpost to block even more process who connects to m$ and disable OneDrive if you want to not to share your private documents with m$. Office upload to OneDrive every local file, in case you dont want to end like Scarlett Johansson "sharing" your private data with the world ;)

    Not much nicer IMHO. Just behave yourselves and try posting without ANY foul language. Can't be that hard, everyone?

    Back to track.
    A couple of facts are objective, though.
    1. C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\OTele: new files are created inside this folder each time an app is run. You can manually clear the content, but to prevent further activity the only way I found is to change folder permissions, take ownership and deny "All" to System and "Write" to Administrator.
    2. Open for example a text document: after a while, OfficeClicktoRun service (that is an expected behavior) and WINWORD.exe (not so expected) try to establish a connection to a remote address in the range of 104.210.4.77. In my system, by the way, Word seems pretty sensitive, because if I block it with firewall it gives me a "Microsoft Word has stopped working" error on closing.
