    I am just curious why there is a need for the app Taptiles to have a background process every time I restart my computer?

    Um, Taptiles appears to be a game. There's no good reason I can think of ... works as coded though. :)

    Agreed, I just was wondering why it would need to start up every time. I guess I should have said game earlier and made it known that I knew it was installed already. I understand Store and Video App but it just seems really weird to have it startup. Is there away to stop it?

    I guess they believe your sole purpose in life is to play their game :)

    From another forum...
    Perform the steps mentioned below to stop them running in the background.
    a: First of all, open up the app which is running in the background.
    b: Once the app is open, press ‘Windows key + I’ or swipe from right and select ‘Settings’.
    c: Your Settings Charm will open. Here press ‘Permissions’.
    d: Your Permissions section of the Charm bar will open where you would see all the permissions which the app has. Turn off the switch under ‘Lock Screen’ by moving it to the left side.
    e: Once turned off, the app will never run again in the background.

    However, I'm not clear reading the rest if this worked or not... :)
