I clearly disable the search online for the Search function and I also disable Windows Store with registry trick (RemoveWindowsStore). How come both apps can still "use" the Internet/Network???

Workaround, figured there would be a GPO for it. Bring up the group policy editor (gpedit.msc), go to Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Search. Enable the policies called "Don't search the web or display web results in Search" and the one right after it that's for metered connections. That'll get it off the start menu anyway, the search app itself still uses Bing of course. The settings screen is obviously bugged.

 

I don't get it. Where do I go to Computer Configuration?? I don't even have the gpedit.msc

(I only have win 8.1 to start with. never had win 8)
