    Remove Delete App from Registry

    I have deleted several App Packages from C:\Program Files\WindowsApps.
    (That packages, some are old from win 8.1, some are from OEM, and I donīt need/want them)

    Now when I boot I get a lot of errors in Event Viewer says that Files are missing.
    I deleted their references in Restry HKLM\Software\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUsers\S-1-5-21-xxxxx (this my User)

    But every time I boot, Windows put back in Registry those references again.

    How I delete that references / Apps?

    Best way is to remove them with Powershell. For example:
    # Remove for users
    Get-AppxPackage -Name $app -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage 
    # Delete from WindowsApps
    Get-AppXProvisionedPackage -Online |
    	where DisplayName -EQ $app |
    	Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online
    If you've deleted them from C:\Program Files\WindowsApps you'd have to do an in-place upgrade to add them back (or possibly try adding them back from the Store ) and then remove them again with Powershell.

    Thank you.
    I have Deleted with PowerShell and after it Manually with File Explorer.
    Most of them are Bloatware from Laptop Manufacturer, and I will have to Restore a System Image.

    I think I only need to Un-register the Deleted Apps.
    How to un-register?

    If you can see it with Get-AppxPackage then you can remove it with Remove-AppxPackage - that is what the top Powershell command above does.

    The second one (Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage) deletes it from WindowsApps (at least it does for me) so you shouldn't have to do it manually - in theory anyway.

    If you can't see it with Get-AppxPackage then I don't know how to remove it from registry (or even if it is the registry you need to remove it from).

    I tried the 2nd command but is "too late", did not remove from Registry.
    But, searching the whole Registry and Deleting all the references it works.
    Thank you.
