    Can't update Windows 10 because of an app, but I uninstalled this app years ago??


    I used to have AVG antivirus software but deleted it a few years ago. The current update is saying I need to remove this program before it can install the new update. Where am I supposed to find an app that has already been uninstalled??

    :)

    Weather App not working windows 8.1

    The apps troubleshooter wouldn't fix it on any of the machines. Tried syncing the app licenses, too. No dice. Uninstalling and reinstalling the MSN Weather App appears to have fixed it.

    Windows 10 forgets default apps

    I have noticed like not 5mins ago that Winamp just got kicked out of my default apps list in Windows 10 Pro.
    I installed this installation not max 3 weeks ago with fresh downloaded Windows 10 Pro using Microsoft Media Creation Tool, is there a way to fix this bcs I using sfc /scannow don't do a lot for me and I have run it before on this installation.

    Before u ask, I have fully updated my Windows 10 with all non-insider/beta updates.

    The only thing I have disabled is the uac prompt that popup when u need admin for applications to run bcs it's simply annoying.

    I don't remember having all these problems with Windows 8.1 Pro when i was using that and I am really thinking about going back so I can have "fully control" over Windows again with like disabling all the admin crap bcs I feel like it's messing more up and makes things less useful in Windows 10 with all these small problems I have and I read a lot of ppl having problems with various things time and time again where they needed to reinstall Win10 over and over to get it to work fully.

    Any advice on how I can get Windows 10 to just work as a "daily driver" without all these small annoying things? *Frown Can't update Windows 10 because of an app, but I uninstalled this app years ago?? :(

    $.10 android apps

    Not sure if anyone's seen this yet, but they have $.10 (yes, 10 cents) android apps on the Android Market to celebrate 10 BILLION downloads. So far I've picked up Tetris, Need for Speed Shift, SoundHound amd ADWLauncher EX. There were several other games that were listed, including ones too good for my phone *Frown Can't update Windows 10 because of an app, but I uninstalled this app years ago?? :(
