Fuck Steam!

Postby Steve C » Sat Sep 23, 2017 9:05 am

After months of trying to track down why my extra HDDs are spinning up, I finally found the culprit. It's Steam.

Steam is not running. It's not in the startup. I'm not running any Steam games. There is absolutely no reason for Steam to turn on. And yet it is. According to Resource Monitor it turns on for just a second. Then stops. How do I make sure that Steam never ever EVER runs unless I manually activate it?

Other than uninstalling it,maybe put it on the uac watchlist?Though that would mean every time you turn the computer on,youd get that annoying yes/no dialogue box.
