WWAHost.exe Microsoft WWA Host (32 bit)


  • I do not have ANY bing apps installed on my machine yet I keep having this pop up every time I log onto the internet. It is taking up resources and slowing my machine down, so how do I stop it?

  • Hi DuganMac,

    Thanks for your post.

    As far as I know,  Microsoft intentionally put WWAHost.exe in Windows 8 as an executable necessary for certain Windows Apps.

    So gernerally we could not close the WWAHost.exe. For the detailed information, please refer to the following document:

    By the way, Since Our forum is discussing about VS general question like how to set/configure Visual Studio and Visual Studio tools.

    I suggest you'd better post your question to the corresponding windows forum for better support.

    Thanks for your understanding.
