    Those are all presents from Microsoft. No extra charge. You can uninstall them. I uninstalled them and they haven't come back. Some are not so lucky!

    Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:
    Code:
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "ContentDeliveryAllowed" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "OemPreInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "PreInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "PreInstalledAppsEverEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ContentDeliveryManager" /v "SilentInstalledAppsEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    What is this and what does it do ?
    How do I know if its not going to break something ?

    This is like someone posting I should use a certain program to fix something with no
    link or explanation of how to use it or what it does.

    Why the thought all OP's have any experience at all ?

    As mentioned, it's MS bloat. I deleted every one of the above when I initially set up my PC and they never came back.
    Right click on the offending apps and uninstall.

    Yep! Agree. That was the simplest way, like I posted back up in #2 almost 5 hours ago. Mine haven't come back either. Maybe the OP will re-read.

    OP is Power User and knows, how to use gpedit, cmd and such, so he certainly knows, how to use google to search, what it does or how to use regedit, like to backup entries before changing/deleting them.
