    I use Piriform CCleaner and it works for removing the store apps. I don't have any experience with the two you mentioned so I can't comment on those.

    It is not advisable to remove the Store Apps completely some may have common components.
    It does not matter if unused Registry entries remain.
    Ccleaner when uninstalled leaves some registry keys....no doubt those others do as well.
    You need an infinite series of uninstallers each removing the previous uninstaller registry keys and on in to infinity....

    Hey xhemal1325,
    I use/like Geek Uninstaller and I've had no problems with it.

    Note: If you remove a program that requires a reboot, just remember to say No or Cancel or it won't do the registry leftover cleanup :)

    Hi Eagle51, i used Geek Uninstalled too before, its does a ok job, even it fails to find OneDrive, and it finds less registry keys compared to IOBIT, but idk if IOBIT is safe and wont mess something with my pc or registry !

    If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to disable OneDrive integration in Windows 10 to no longer see it. It doesn't uninstall it though.
