    gpedit installer for Windows 10 "Home"...

    Windows 10 Group Policy sure got .adm files /sarcasm

    All the files in the GPedit installer are XP old windows files.

    So static automated removal is out for those kinds of services. Is there an automated way to query what the string is and then add it to one's automated removal?

    Seems to be a good software if M$ lets Windows manipulate your definitive NO to any nagging W10 updates that is turned off - by me as Administrator - in the OS version that is currently used.
    In W 7 I used the standard MSE and adwcleaner for cleaning up any spying on my system, hijacking browsers, taking control over my behavior, ..., and acting as removal of Malware.As a last resort Malwarebytes is used but its' scan could be too harsh on your system; this happened in XP Pro.

    You need to disable the main Unistack services if you want to disable the children _<random numbers/letters> services. Like disable "CDPUserSvc" service to disable the "CDPUserSvc_<random numbers/letters>" child service.

    The first suggestion on that site is the privacy switches during custom setup, do they actually do anything now? They didn't pre-Redstone iirc

    Deleted those services following the guide and it worked! No more services with random numbers.

    Because it's a privacy guide, not a customisation guide?

    I guess so, but getting privacy seems to require more and more actual customisation as new W10 versions come out. IMO lock screen belongs to the phones.

    I do not recommend this approach of butchering your system.
    You can remove things with simple commands and disable services with single registry keys.
    What this guy is suggesting is to completely remove things from your system that your system has been designed to depend on.
    This is the wrong way to handle it.

    Most of Win 10 belongs, and is, on phones, if it wasn't for MS's feeble attempt at putting a dent a market they were far too late joining, we wouldn't have all this touch crap
