I picked up a Win10 Pro machine for my mother. While I'm not new to Windows, I expected some shovelware, but I'm new to Windows 10.
I right-click, uninstalled March of Empires, Minecraft, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Bubble Witch 3 Saga. A few minutes later, they reinstalled themselves.
I read a forum post which said that updates in-the-pipe may have caused the apps to reinstall. So I uninstalled them again. They seemed gone. This post How do I remove Candy Crush Saga from Windows 10? seems to agree, right-click, uninstall.
I completed setting up the machine for my mother, a few maintinence reboots and the regular Windows updates were finished...
Yet they reinstalled a third time.
What am I missing here? Has Microsoft lost their mind? Did I miss a "don't reinstall" option when uninstalling?
What's the right way to get rid of this?
