I don't use and don't want to have anything to do with Metro/Modern Apps. The computer is used for serious work.
Additionally, I prefer to have Windows Updates to only run when it's appropriate to update my system, so I have configured Windows Update not to install updates unless I grant explicit permission.
But I noticed in the Reliability Monitor events being reported as "Successful Windows Update" for such items as Microsoft.BingHealthAndFitness and Microsoft.WindowsAlarms.
Call me a control freak I guess, but my workstation has a function, and as a software engineer I prefer to manage it carefully and not allow Microsoft to do whatever they want whenever they want.
Well, It turns out there's a different setting that governs whether Apps are updated automatically. It's settable via the Local Group Policy Editor:
> Administrative Templates
> Windows Components
Enable the policy to Turn off Automatic Download and install of updates.
