    the implications of a terminated program under those circumstances could have cost many hundreds of pounds in machine damage, and possibly injury throught flying peices of metal!
    Gosh. I didn't think of that.

    Perhaps I should remove the weather app in case it causes a hurricane.

    Thank you for this list. This bloat ware causes issues in virtualized environments. We are trying to remove every unnecessary process so they do not have a chance to eat up cycles and increase CPU ready time.

    I will ignore some of the negative comments, this is my own method I run
    https://gallery.technet.microsoft.co...-apps-65dc387b

    To remove the apps I do not want from the install.wim file if you want to get windows 10 iso then goto
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 on a linux machine this will let you choose what version and language you want

    the iso has the install.wim create a bootable usb using the Windows 7 to USB you can then run the powershell script on the install.wim file to remove the apps you do not want.

    If you use the sysprep guide on this site you can disable a lot of settings via GPO before finaly finishing the install - for a nice clean minamilist OS

    I understand why MS is including adverts and trying to upsell other products - however I agree with the OP I should have the option to turn this off or not install it during the instalation - I dont want games, I do not need a Twitter or Facebook app, there are tons of websites to check the weather or the news, I use VLC for playing videos and musicBee for my music, I do not have an XBOX, I am happy with the standard app for skype it should be called anoyanceware.

    I want the OS to do my work and run the applications I choose not to offer me stuff I don't need. Just like I don't like TV adverts or adverts on websites.

    Since I first used windows 1.1 it has come along way windows 98 was ok, Windows 2000 was great, windows media was omg - Vista wtf - Windows 7 I am tempted to go back to no adverts but lacks some support for newer hardware :-(

    Another utility I use is O&O ShutUp10 which blocks a lot of other non essential stuff from running.

    Considering, that removing built-in apps might cripple the Windows, I wonder, if it is worth the effort?!
