If you uninstall/delete the Win Store from the computer, and then try to download a (free) store app from the browser (in my case: Chrome, Win Store web-page, ad-blocker off), no downlead will occur, and there will be no advisory, or error, message.

This makes sense given a design strategy of:

1) give the user what they never asked for ... lots of it

2) ignore the user asking for something their own behavior has blocked access to

3) do not inform users of the effects of their asking for something their own behavior has blocked access to because:

3a) stupid/crazy/OS-hacking users won't understand it

3b) stupid/crazy/OS-hacking users don't deserve it

4) Chrome users are apostates.

5) don't fix issues until class-action lawsuits are filed

But, wait: suppose it's Google/Chrome's devilish doings, another back-hander in the browser Armageddon ?
