  2. Duplicate ‘my office’ entries in start menu

    Ok thanks. I tried uninstalling my office. That worked but left us with one entry that was dead still and cannot be uninstalled. So I just reinstalled it again to have a working app. But of course back to duplicate entries

    EDIT actually the remaining my office entry was not dead. It still couldn’t be removed but clicking on it results in a fast white bar which then reinstalls ‘my office’ and gives you a working app. But it is a duplicate entry. The old entry stays but now becomes a dead entry in the start menu apps list. So whatever MS has done trying to transition from get office to my office has not cleaned up after itself properly

  3. Pre-loaded games won't uninstall

    I'm not really into some of the games that were pre-loaded into my PC but when I try to bring up the games from the Start menu and click on 'uninstall' it takes me to the control panel, and I don't see the games listed there for me to uninstall. Suggestions, please? Thanks! ~P

    Game won't uninstall

    Hi Z3N1X,

    In order to address your concern about uninstalling your game, you may consider the following troubleshooting suggestions:

    Try clicking this
    link
    in order to access hidden auto starting images that have been added to your system. This will also help you delete an auto-start configuration entry with the use of its menu item or toolbar button.

    Once you were able to delete that program, try checking in the services view if it is indeed deleted. Follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Once the Run box appear, type services.msc.
    • Press Enter.
    • Check if the program can still be found.

    Let us know the result for us to help you further.

    Regards.
