  1. 80+ gigs of Useless Apps that I cannot get rid of


    There are 20+ gigs of king.com.candy.crush packages.

    I never use or asked for candy crush

    How does this game take more space then advance computational fluid dynamics software?

    I have uninstalled the pre-installed candy crush packages, which was hard to do because there was no "uninstall" button on the "uninstall program" list under programs and features for candy crush.

    So I use the power shell method

    Candy crush no longer appears on the programs list, but some how there is over 20gigs of kings.com candy crush files in C:\program files\windows apps

    These files will not be erased. Plus files for several other apps (candy witch sage, candy F!#k saga, bubble something and a bunch of other candy and/or sage ****) that I never used or asked for. They are not even in my list of programs so I can even try the garbage that is cluttering up my OS drive.

    Candy Crush Soda Saga has 20 folders in C:\program files\windows apps with similiar title "king.com.CandyCrushSodaSaga_1.123.200.0_x86__kgqvnymyfvs32". The titles differ in number that appears after the word "Saga"

    Each of the other useless apps in that folder are the same- many folders

    All together they take over 80GB of space and I cannot erase them.

    The computer says the it needs permission from "CC".

    WELL, I AM "CC" and I am logged in as "CC". "CC" is my account and I very badly want to give windows permission to do what I tell it to do.

    However, there is not an "ok you have my permission" button, only a "try again" button and a "cancel" button.

    **** windows. I am so frustrated

    Why is there 80GB of useless apps on my OS drive and why can I not get rid of them??????????????????????????????

    THIS IS UNREASONABLE......Please windows......stop the madness

    :)

    Gigs

    Maybe I was a bit harsh. But the local gigs listing was the most useful and unique part of the app. It was the only thing that I found useful in the app. It was the one feature that I bragged about and showed to my friends. It was amazing that I could
    bring up a list of all the bands playing within a 20 mile radius and choose our destination for live music. Now I need to use a search term which drastically limits the results. It was much better when it just showed me all the local gigs. It has lost a
    tremendous amount of usefulness to me.

    Programs Missing From Control Panel List


    I was able to get rid of XNVIEW by downloading it and using it's own uninstaller.
    Have tried method suggested by Pyramid 10 with photoscape without success.
    Can't figure out how to do what is asked.

    Your next suggestion?
