    Unknown Microsoft Wallets?


    New build with a clean install of Win 10, updated to Fall Creators (1709). This is my first Win 10 experience. I've been installing the software that I use and clearing out the crap that MS insists that I need. While going through settings I found this:

    WTH??? I have never used MS Pay or Wallet. Anyone know where these might have come from and how to get rid of them? Could they be from some form of malware?

    Help!

    My guess would be it has to do with a MS account that is associated to the MS store. Well, I just googled it and it's an easier way to shop with Edge.

    Thing is this is a brand new fresh load. There is only one local account, no MS account. Used Edge a little bit to download drivers and such during the install and I've never used the MS Store. I understand what a MS wallet is. I just don't understand why I have a dozen wallets associated with this PC.

    Look at your own PC, Settings > Apps > Apps for Websites. Do you see the same thing?

    Yep....like I said, it seems to be tied to Edge. I just turn all that crap off as I don't use Edge. Also I don't use any of those other apps that MS crams down our throats. I either turn them off, disable from start up or completely uninstall them.

    Hi,
    Mine is blank probably because Edge is not the default browser Palmoon is :)

    Can Edge be uninstalled without affecting the rest of the OS? Will it get rid of those bogus wallets? I've been going through lots of the crapware the MS installs and uninstalling some of it (Xbox, IE, others) but I don't know how deeply Edge is tied into the OS.

    Being that this is my first Win10 install, that is probably where I screwed up. After the initial install I was using Edge to download drivers and programs. Once I downloaded Waterfox I installed it, made it the default browser and haven't used Edge since. I guess somewhere along the line that stuff crept in. I just want to know how to get rid of those wallets. Seeing other people's names associated with them and not knowing how they got there really bothers me.

    Chrome is my default browser and yet I have the same exact wallet crap as RW.

    Been researching this lightly for the last few weeks. Still have not found the exact cause or how to remove the wallets. Still open to suggestions.
