Fix Recommendation

The Windows Store is not installed by default. If the \Windows\WinStore directory does not exist, this is NA.

Windows 2012 R2:
Windows 2012 R2 split the original policy that configures this setting into two separate ones. Configuring either one to "Enabled" will update the registry value as identified in the Check section.

Configure the policy value for Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Store ->
"Turn off Automatic Download of updates on Win8 machines" or "Turn off Automatic Download and install of updates" to "Enabled".

Windows 2012:
Configure the policy value for Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Store -> "Turn off Automatic Download of updates" to "Enabled".
