    Apps like Facebook and Candy Crush reinstalls after restart


    Hi Guys!

    I'm using windows v1709 with a fresh install. After boot, I uninstalled apps like facebook, Candy Crush, etc but after restart they return. How can I get rid of it?Thanks

    Hi HippsieGypsie, I just check and everything is set Ok. I just made a clean install with lastest build (fall update) in offline and after I linked with my MS account(I link after I created a local account to avoid windows create user folder with a missing letter in end).

    Hello fulvioval,

    In addition, you might also see if turning off the automatic installation of suggested apps may help prevent them from being reinstalled.
