    Bloat apps keep re-appearing


    Hey all,

    I am running Windows 10 Pro X64 v1607 (July 2016 ISO)

    I recently formatted due to getting an SSD, and now im having issues with bloat apps self-installing themselves.

    I am using the following two tweaks to remove all the metro apps and disable consumer features

    Remove all Metro Apps (Option 4.5)
    and
    Disable Consumer Features

    However after each reset, the following apps still show up in my start menu under recently added.

    Caesars Slots
    MSN News
    Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta
    Microsoft Solitaire Collection
    Netflix
    Paradise Bay
    Twitter
    Facebook
    Ill mention that they do not install, it looks like they all have a progress bar but it never progresses.

    I ran it as Administrator and it found nothing to remove in the "Recommended/Questionable" Tabs.
    Everything under the "Everything else" i had installed.

    Would like to say that i used the "Remove all Metro Apps" powershell script in the past and never had this issue, its not the first time i have formatted with the v1607 iso either.

    Try Revo Uninstaller. If the program doesn't show up in the list, use Hunter Mode.
    Be sure to use the Advanced option to fully remove them from the Windows Registry.

    That unfortunately did not work either,

    I keep uninstalling them, and they keep randomly coming back.

    Cant believe this is how Windows operates now.
