    Apps such as Cooking Fever attempting to install against my will!


    Hello,

    Yesterday I installed Windows 10 Pro and have had this problem ever since.

    This app Cooking Fever appears in my Start Menu. I try to uninstall it but after a few hours it reappears. Microsoft store brings this up and tries to install it desperately. I uninstall it, but it attempts to reinstall the app again.

    I wasn't experiencing this behaviour with Windows 10 Home for the 2 weeks that I was using. I installed Windows 10 Pro version and this is what I get.

    What is the solution to stop this from happening? I already instructed Microsoft Store to not run in the background. Microsoft once again not respecting my privacy. This is making me mad now, I'm seriously running out of patience with this operating system.

    I am fed up with the sheer amount of bloatware w10 has got inside its store. 99,99% of these apps are just plain crap. You can uninstall them easily with Geek Uninstaller.

    Ok I did it via the second option using the registry.

    But I don't know why the Windows store app doesn't let me change. Click image for larger version.

    This is why I hate Windows 10 so much, at every step of the way I am having to troubleshoot...
    This option is greyed out when I am the system administrator...
