After having to install Windows 8.1 multiple of times and dealing with multiple computers, I created the 'ultimate' unscrew Windows script that automatically adds all of the appropriate values to your registry (for turning off stupid things like the 'you have a new app to open files' alerts and windows store services, and uninstalls all of the telemetry updates.

Here's the code if you want to save it as a .BAT file, alternatively I have it attached to the post where you can just download the .BAT and run it.
Code:
@echo off
:: Ultimate Unscrew | Windows 8/8.1

:: Delete diagtrack
echo Stopping 'Diagtrack' service
sc stop Diagtrack
echo Deleting 'Diagtrack' service
sc delete Diagtrack

:: Disable Remote Registry
echo Setting 'Remote Registry' service to disabled
sc config "RemoteRegistry" start= disabled

:: Disables the new app alert
echo Disabling 'New App' alert (adding registry key)
REG ADD "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer" /V NoNewAppAlert /T REG_dWORD /D 1 /F

:: Disables the 'Windows Store' from communicating back to Microsoft periodically
echo Disabling 'Windows Store Service' (adding registry key)
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\WSService" /V Start /T REG_dWORD /D 4 /F

:: Disables the System Events Broker
echo Disabling 'Windows Store: System Events Broker' (adding registry key)
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SystemEventsBroker" /V Start /T REG_dWORD /D 4 /F

:: Can be used if diagtrack can't be removed, but it can so excluding this one out
:: REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DiagTrack" /V Start /T REG_dWORD /D 4 /F
:: REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell" /V EdgeUI /T REG_dWORD /D DisableCharmsHint /F

:: Remove the 'spy' updates

Pending future features:
*Automatically add the registry entries to disable charms bar
*Automatically add the registry entries to disable 'sticky / filter keys' (this was very annoying for me for gaming back in the day on XP)
*Automatically launch powershell within the .BAT to run the remove app script:
Code:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -online | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online

*automatically turn off 'fast startup'
*automatically disable the "lock screen"
*disable task bar transparency

Credit goes here for the folks who compiled the KB removal script that I tacked on:

A quick update to this script, I removed the following for now:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TimeBroker" /V Start /T REG_dWORD /D 4 /F

I have to confirm whether or not this links itself to task scheduler (the TimeBroker is actually what runs the backend for the awful Windows RT platform, or 'apps' that was introduced in Windows 8 and carried to windows 10):
