    Console downloading random games itself. Please Help.


    earlier today I found my Xbox one downloading 5 games Which I didn't ask for. I spoke with customer support and they said I hadn't been charged for it so I can just cancel. I cancelled those and they are now sitting in ready to install. A short while ago
    I found 5 different versions of titanfall being downloaded. I have cancelled these as well.

    Can someone tell me why this is happening and how I can make it stop?

    :)

  2. Console keeps rebooting itself (please help)

    Have you tried using your Xbox without the Hard Drive? (meaning taking the hard drive out, and then turning it on) Tutorial on how to do this,

    support.xbox.com/.../add-remove-hard-drive
    This is my first guess to what may be causing this to happen.

    So basically what you are saying is that the hard drive that came with it is causing the problem, so it is a faulty product. Microsoft should have known this then if it is happening to so many people. Sometimes I try watching a show on Netflix and it will
    restart and while it is restarting it restarts again. My Xbox is very close to being worthless and I am considering to going back to the original. The problem does not lie within the hard drive, it is the power supply. They came out with a quick fix, $149
    system made in China, piece of garbage to make the shareholders happy. I, on the other hand, am very unhappy, I am on my second power supply, xbox and microsoft really *** up on this ONE. Hopefully they don't screw their customers on the Xbox One

    Do you game/account share? If so that's why. Also you could turn auto download off in settings.

    Sounds like you bought a Used Xbox One, or previously game shared with someone. Make sure to set your Xbox One as your "Home" console. That will fix it.

    No I do not account share. I bought the xbox new out of the box. I went to settings and turned off automatic updates and installing of new purchases. This hopefully will work.
