speaking of CODE --

i've found this 1 very useful when running WinOS X and a very annoying process would run in the BG called Skype. anyone can use this script in a BAT (batch) file. name it what you wish -- i call it "killSkype.bat"

takeown /f "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Messaging_2.13.20000.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe\SkypeHost.exe"
icacls "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Messaging_2.13.20000.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe\SkypeHost.exe" /grant administrators:f
move "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Messaging_2.13.20000.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe\SkypeHost.exe" "%userprofile%\desktop"
ren "%userprofile%\desktop\SkypeHost.exe" "dieSkypedie.exe"
del "%userprofile%\desktop\dieSkypedie.exe"

>> copy and paste that block into a text editor, edit the file paths as needed and save it as a .BAT file-- you can then run this batch file to automatically run these commands in the Command Prompt/Terminal. it's useful when you need to run it fast before the process attempts to reboot/reload themselves -- hence the reason for the 'move' of the file to prevent it from auto-executing and the 'ren' which renames the file (dieSkypedie.exe) then 'del' deletes the file once and for all.

and that too could be considered a sort of digital protest against bloatware(trialware+) that often times fills up standard Windows OS and is often times useless to the user(s) unless they subscribe before D-Day.

in any case, i guess i should plug in a WARNING here for anyone that may damage their PC using this BAT 4 Evil. SOOO >> USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK and #StopTouchingMyCookies
