Bloatware is truly awful. Manufacturers fill your shiny new laptop, phone, or tablet with pre-installed applications to put an extra dollar in their pocket, leaving you a bundle of oft-useless programs taking up space. If it is annoying on laptops with large storage drives, it is downright infuriating finding out your 32GB phone storage is 25% full at purchase.

It is wrong, and we’ve seen some pretty appalling examples of bloatware this year; Lenovo’s SuperFish debacle springs to mind….

    C-Cleaner didn't work for me. I clicked on the app and it said it couldn't find it.

    interestingly you use CCleaner and on MUO web site you have multiple articles why you should remove CCleaner right away…

    Is there a way to remove the pop-up Apps for some reason some random apps called Prebab & Rockette keeps popping up every time I delete them. I looked everywhere on the Internet

    BAD BAD video and I use the term video lightly because it's clearly filmed as a livestream/1-shot where this guy fumbles around only to discover that he knows nothing about computers beyond the sheer basics and, like many people on youtube, enjoy creating redundant and pointless videos so they can boast having a channel. Let me save you the pain of watching this (basically he just tells you to download shareware/freeware and use it) Use Revo Uninstaller (Free) PC Decrapifier (Free) or as a last resort, his suggestion (CCleaner) though this will not do as good of a job as Revo will. The end, no video needed – Like if you this helps you 🙂

    If you want to get rid of ALL of the pre-installed apps open a powershell console as admin and run 'AppxPackage -allusers | Remove-AppxPackage'. Beware, this removes ALL apps including Sticky Notes, Calculator, Camera, photos etc. But, they can be added back with a powershell command for each.You're welcome.

    This video is crap. I should do my own video on how to remove unwanted Windows components forever using PowerShell scripts and third-party tools as everything you'r using in your video is not a solution, it's bullshit.

    ccleaner is a spyware itself, unlike it's predecessor CrapCleaner

    i found out how to remove programs that you cant remove with the powershell

    you can change the location of the local, localraw and roaming folder and if you do that and you move all the files windows cant find any files so nothing realy works. and the apps are broken too. oh yea if you are doing this make sure you dont need the settings thats is build in windows 10 and have classic shell installed otherwise you wont have an start menu
    maybe this is usefull info for devs that want to create a program deleting the apps that cant be removed in the powershell.

    Are u using trial version of CC Cleaner? U did not actually click uninstall thats why i ask. Just curious if they make u 'upgrade' to actually unistall (similar to anti-virus software). Also can i remove the xbox crap using this method? as i never liked messing with CMD prompts.
    Thanks. Great video btw !
