How to disable Tile Data model server in Windows 10

Windows 10 comes with the new start menu with live title supported. I have pinned many apps in it, but I don’t want to have those LIVE TILES. Because the system always become slow and even keeps crashing. If I move a program shortcut to my User Folder, the process take 2 minutes to finish. I open the task manager and notice that the Tiledatamodelsvc under Appmodel process uses about 20% cpu. I could not turn it off by powershell to minimize resources.

Appmodel (Tiledatamodelsvc) is linked with Tile Data model server in Windows 10. This is a system service running under LocalSystem account and it is required for updating the information of app tile. By default it is set to “Automatic” and changing it may run in unexpect behavior.

If I modify the startup action of “Tile Data model server” to disable in Services, it will restart itself automatically. To resolve the crashing problem, you need to disable it in registry editor.
* Press Win + R from your keyboard, type regedit in Run dialog box and click on OK button.
* Navigate to the location below:


* Go to its right side pane, double click on Start key, change its value data from 2 to 4, and click OK to uninstall and disable Tile Data model server completely.
* However, I had done that and the method doesn’t take any effect after Windows 10 After Creators Update (Redstone 2). That also causes other issues, such as the broken Start menu. I have to set the value back to 2.

Anybody has figure out other way to get rid of that?
