    Custom Start Menu & Metro App removal

    I used to have the scripts that are listed all over the web within my Win10 deployment and it worked wonderfully. But now, it's not. And i'm not sure why.

    What's happening is, the metro apps are being removed, but their shortcuts i guess are staying behind.

    And as for the start menu, the file is being applied to the default profile and i can open the layoutmodification.xml file in the current user location and the default user location and the contents of it match the desirable xml file on the SCCM server that's being deployed, but the start menu still looks original to a fresh Win10 install, but it also has messed up metro app shortcuts that are left behind from the apps that were removed.

    Why is this? Is it because of patching my WIM within SCCM to have the latest patches\updates?

    I've included a screen shot of what it looks like now on the start menu and my currently installed metro apps. The other is the screenshot of the current update status to the WIM within SCCM
