I ran it for about 2 weeks on a laptop at home used for general browsing, but watching the logs on my firewall were crazy. I couldn't manage to track down all the different *-edge.net domains or other CDN endpoints they were using to relentlessly connect. You basically have to switch to whitelisting. My hosts block file picked up dozens of entries, but after realizing it'd be a never ending cat & mouse game I reverted back to Win7...Unless they stop this crap in a soon to be released patch we'll go back to being a Windows free home when win7 gets bothersome.
Just use this: https://github.com/10se1ucgo/D... Along with some easily googlable additions to your HOSTS file. I've manged to get it down to just one site client.wns.windows.com (IIRC) it will try randomly the entire time but HOSTS seems to deal with it as well as it can be dealt with.
