  1. I'm having trouble uninstalling certain adware on Windows 10.


    Hello! Unfortunately, I've found quite a bit of adware on my Windows 10 computer that's been interfering with the software I'm needing to use for work. There are ways to bypass the adware, but, ultimately, this is very time consuming and frustrating. Also, these programs are using vital CPU resources that I need for my job. The best solution is to get rid of this adware, and I've tried really hard to do so, but, unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a simple way to get rid of this stuff. Can someone please help me out? I am needing to uninstall:

    • Windows Game Bar
    • Windows Ink
    • Windows Update
    • Windows Audio Device Manager
    • Windows Cortana
    • Windows Store


    Thank you in advanced.


    - John

  2. Adware Troubles

    You can do it. Follow the steps here.

    Remove Gen:Variant.Adware virus (Easy Removal Guide)

    If it is not listed in the Control Panel, or it can't be removed there, move on to step 2. You might be able to skip the step with HitmanPro. (30 day free trial if needed)

    Unable to uninstall an app on Windows 10

    Hello dayhiker4k,

    First, I went ahead and moved this thread to the appropriate category, so no need to worry about that. Thanks for letting us know about this.

    Regarding your concern, I have listed below the most basic steps on how to uninstall a program on Windows 10 via settings. Try it out and see if it helps:

    • On the Start menu, select Settings.
    • Select Apps.
    • Select the program, and then select Uninstall. Some apps built into Windows can't be uninstalled.
    • Follow the instructions on the screen.

    If the above step won't work, I suggest that you check with Webroot's support website for steps on how to completely uninstall their programs. Some anti-virus apps require certain permissions, or may have have different steps to perform in order to completely
    take it out of the system.

    If you're still having trouble uninstalling the app, the last resort that I can share to you is to uninstall it using
    Command Prompt. Follow the steps provided by Ramesh.Kumar from
    this link and let us know the outcome.

    We'll keep an eye out to your response.

    I'm having trouble uninstalling certain adware on Windows 10.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
