CCleaner no longer showing pre-loaded sytem apps under uninstall list.


Recommended Posts

As the title states. I re-installed windows already (last resort) and it still ( after installing CCleaner 5.63 again) don't show any of the pre-installed apps in the uninstall list. I wanted to debloat my daughter's new laptop from any unnecessary apps. Any input would be appreciated. Thx.

Specs: Acer Aspire 5 Slim - Windows 10 v1903 64bit

Can you give some examples of things that you say are pre-installed but not in CCleaners uninstall list?

Do they show in Win 10  Apps in Settings on the machine? (I take it this is Win 10 we are talking about?)

CC can't uninstall all of the pre-loaded apps from Win 10, they are 'protected'.

Sonething that can remove unnecessary pre-loaded stuff is AdwCleaner from Malwarebytes, it has to be version 7.4 though - earlier versions couldn't touch them either.

It can't remove all Win 10 apps, some are built into the OS.

Note that AdwCleaner is not a rival to CCleaner - They do very different jobs. Use Adw once to get rid of junk apps, use CCleaner regularly to get rid of junk files.

You can download the latest AdwCleaner herehttps://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/?channel=release:

While we wait for thread starter to post back, users must bear this in mind now with Microsoft Store App.

If you uninstalled Microsoft Store by any means and want to reinstall it, the only Microsoft-supported method is to reset or reinstall the operating system, which will reinstall Microsoft Store.

Mmn, TBH that sounds like MS  marketing.

I don't even have a MS account anymore (deleted it) and don't have any problem without it.

Of course if (like me) you were conned into thinking that you had to have a MS account for Win 10 (MS marketing again) then there may be more unwanted stuff that you can't get rid of while you still have that account.

(I wish it was as easy to stop Goggle sic. putting/updating unwanted stuff on my phone)

I never had one to delete anyway.

I was posting to the general users of Win 10 about the consequences of deleting/uninstalling certain built-in Microsoft apps.

Yes, and another is the Your Phone app which supposedly shouldn't be messed with either, even if it's entirely unused.
