    Please help me get rid of the Facebook app!


    I foolishly installed the facebook beta app from the Windows 10 store,now I'm getting popups notifying me of posts in Facebook and I find that really annoying. I've tried blocking notifications in Chrome and Torch browser, manually deleting anything relating to Facebook from inside the Windowsapps folder but I still get those damn notifications! GRRRR!!! Under the apps and features section in the settings menu, the Facebook beta app is still listed but can't be removed, trying to uninstall it gives me an 0x80073cfa error. I even tried removing the app with PowerShell and I got an error. How the bloody hell do I rid myself of this thing?

    How to get rid of Face Book
    Have tried to uninstall it this way
    Left click Start
    Then go to All Apps
    Scroll down until you see the face Book App
    Then Right Click and a menu should show up
    At the bottom you should see uninstall
    Click that and it should uninstall its self

    Do you remember the date you installed Facebook beta app ?
    If yes, do a system restore, pick a couple of days BEFORE that date as your restore point.
