    Uninstall Cortana from Windows 10

    Wondering if running the original method as trustedinstaller make as well a clean uninstall (install_wim_tweak)
  5. CBSEnum : A nice found a gui for dism, as an alternative to install_win_tweak, list organise installed package, uninstall them with official command etc. CBSEnum Site & Download : https://bitbucket.org/himselfv/cbsenum Note : do not edit rights to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing" just run the app as trustedinstaller with the tool devxexec http://developex.com/custom-software/devx-exec.html devxexec.exe /user:TrustedInstaller cmd.exe
  6. Info : It's better to runs the command as the user TrustedInstaller, to do so, you can use the tool "devxexec" http://developex.com/custom-software/devx-exec.html devxexec.exe /user:TrustedInstaller powershell.exeNote : This step is not needed on most cases, you could use it as alternative if you get errors Method 1 - Classic : Prerequisite : Package files need to still be present on the disk (example "c:\windows\systemapps\yourpackage") 1. The reinstall command : Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register c:\windows\systemapps\yourapp\AppXManifest.xmlMethod 2 - From DVD: Prerequisite : Nothing 1. Restore the package files from the dvd or from an update package 2. From the dvd, install the last version of 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/download.html) and open the system image from the disk "x:\sources\image.wim" (7zip need to be lauched as trustedinstaler) restore the files from directory 1 to your disk (restore just the package file like c:\windows\systemapps\yourapp) 3. Reinstall the package Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register c:\windows\systemapps\yourapp\AppXManifest.xmlAlternative command : Add-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online -PackagePath c:\PackagePath\????.appxbundle -LicensePath c:\PackagePath\License.xmlMethod 3 - From an update package : 1. Download the needed package (kb msi file, just the kb of the updated app) 2. Extract the packages files msiexec /a c:\package.msi /qb TARGETDIR=c:\package3. Copy the files to their original location (example "c:\windows\systemapps\yourpackage") 4. Reinstall the package Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register c:\windows\systemapps\yourapp\AppXManifest.xmlAlternative command : Add-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online -PackagePath c:\PackagePath\????.appxbundle -LicensePath c:\PackagePath\License.xmlMethod 4 - Restoration after uninstalling it with install_wim_tweak : Here is how (i took ShellExperienceHost as exemple) 0. I used this to manipulate the registry "devxexec.exe /user:TrustedInstaller regedit.exe" 1. Restore Application File (from a backup or from dvd or from updates, check firsts steps of other methods to see how) C:\Windows\SystemApps\ShellExperienceHost... 2. Delete a registry entry \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\CatalogsToUninstall\ *** YOUR PACKAGE NAME (ShellExperienceHost bla bla) ***3. Restore those registry keys and it's contents [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-ShellExperienceHost-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~fr-FR~10.0.10240.16384][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-ShellExperienceHost-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~fr-FR~10.0.10240.16384\Owners][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\PackageIndex\Microsoft-Windows-ShellExperienceHost-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~0.0.0.0][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\PackageIndex\Microsoft-Windows-ShellExperienceHost-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~fr-FR~0.0.0.0][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\PackageDetect\Microsoft-Windows-ShellExperienceHost-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~0.0.0.0][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\PackageDetect\Microsoft-Windows-ServerCore-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~0.0.0.0][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\PackageDetect\Microsoft-Windows-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~0.0.0.0][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-ShellExperienceHost-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~10.0.10240.16384][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Packages\Microsoft-Windows-ShellExperienceHost-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~10.0.10240.16384\Owners]4. : you need to restore catalog files too in "C:\Windows\servicing\Packages" (2 files) 5. : you need to check if the package have been updated... and catalog the update too (run "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth") and check errors there, you should have some thing like "Package_392_for_KB3081455~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~10.0.1.3" missing or so... in other term you need to restore "Package_392" registry keys and catalog files too Simply just repeat all the steps for "Package_392" which is the updated package name . 6. : Reboot and RocknRoll !! Cheers ^^

    after reboot can you make a new copy of your database and check if "IsInbox" is still to 0 ? you could also test the the uninstall command as trustedinstaller (with the tool devxexec - http://developex.com/custom-software/devx-exec.html) "devxexec.exe /user:TrustedInstaller powershell.exe"

    Uninstall Cortana from Windows 10

    That's good info. Up to now I have these: PS C:\TEMP> Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Select PackageFullName PackageFullName --------------- Microsoft.VCLibs.120.00_12.0.21005.1_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe Microsoft.VCLibs.120.00_12.0.21005.1_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe Microsoft.Appconnector_1.3.3.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe Microsoft.WinJS.2.0_1.0.9600.17018_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.10240.16384_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy windows.immersivecontrolpanel_6.2.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy Microsoft.AccountsControl_10.0.10240.16384_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy Microsoft.LockApp_10.0.10240.16384_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy Microsoft.Windows.AssignedAccessLockApp_1000.10240.16384.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy The VCLibs entries are from Visual Studio, though I don't know whether I actually need them if I'm not developing Universal Apps. Based on what you've written, it looks like I could remove these without problems: Microsoft.Appconnector_1.3.3.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe Microsoft.WinJS.2.0_1.0.9600.17018_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe Microsoft.LockApp_10.0.10240.16384_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy Microsoft.Windows.AssignedAccessLockApp_1000.10240.16384.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy Out of curiosity, why did you keep Windows.MiracastView? -Noel I kept miracast in case i want to use the wifi display stream system on an other device (tablet or else...) but i finally delete it because i don't think i will need that as i use hdmi when i need Finally minimal packages are : Microsoft.AccountsControl ================== Modern account control Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost ======= modern start menu / clock / notification shell windows.immersivecontrolpanel ============= Modern control pannel All the rest could be deleted without issue. I am also using visual studio 2015 i deleted the vclibs because i am not developing modern app, also those libs could be used on other modern app, if you don't use modern app at all you could get rid of those packages too.

    Uninstall Cortana from Windows 10

    No need to revert back just check if you have the package you want to remove with this command "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers" if yes, check if the files are still there "c:\windows\systemapps\yourpackage" otherwise restore them from dvd from "x:\sources\image.wim" (open with 7zip launched as trustedinstaller) then reinstall the package with "Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register c:\windows\systemapps\yourapp\AppXManifest.xml" then you could uninstall it with the git method. if you have an updated package, extract the files from the cumulative update file instead of dvd Last case if you package is not listed with "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers" or "Get-AppxPackage" then just restore the files from dvd/update file and run "Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register c:\windows\systemapps\yourapp\AppXManifest.xml you could then uninstall it with the method you want to no need to make things complicated bro

    Up : How to remove a package after error 0x80073CF1 Note : you get that error when a package is installed on other user accounts or on a ghost account (removed account), this is also usefull to remove remaining useless packages Get list of the packages for all users Command : Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers First you need an sql database editor like SqliteBrowser3 1. Do those manipulation as system user (use psexec or else) 2. Make a copy of `C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\AppRepository\StateRepository-Machine.srd` 3. Open that copy with SqliteBrowser3 or else 4. You need to edit "package", "userpackage" and "user" table... you need to remove gost users from the user table, and remove other user on userpackage entry. 5. kill `tasklist /svc /fi "services eq StateRepository"` 6. replace original `StateRepository-Machine.srd` after backup. 7. reboot and then you could remove your package normally "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage -Confirm" Note : you need to leave your own user entry assigned to the package Note 2 : in my case i just kept those 4 packages Microsoft.AccountsControl_10.0.10240.16384_neutral__cw5n1h2txyewy Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_10.0.10240.16384_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy windows.immersivecontrolpanel_6.2.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy Windows.MiracastView_6.3.0.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy Note 3 : to refresh apps you could do this after all Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

    Uninstall Cortana from Windows 10

    Awaiting noelC to answer here is what i think it could help Every one loved xp and win7 the problem with those system it's that they will become obsolete quickly and we will be somehow forced to migrate in the other hand, you can still stick with 7 forever and use additional tools like firewall and tweaks to maintain the system yourself. one thing for sure it's less time consuming than migrating to 10 I personally decided since 8 to make my own version of linux... based on an existing distribution... i still did not migrate fully because it's impossible but i started the migration, i will still need windows on a virtual machine or on an other machine and connect to my applications with seemless destop solution or so... Any way what bother me the most is the time needed to tune windows8/10 it's just horrible, but in the other hand we still need to be aware of what Microsoft is doing and how to makes tweaks to have the system the way we want. One last important point is that windows 10 is continuously developped, so every cumulative update we need to check what changed etc... in reality those changes are not updates, but new system version Conclusion : Win7/Linux/Win10 etc... the question is what functionality do you need ? that's all. Note : Win 10 is stable, and have a lot of interesting features, and is usable after 2 weeks of tweaks... the system consume more resources than 7 and 8

    Uninstall Cortana from Windows 10

    Mighty fine. I had not removed Edge cause nothing else would. I had to type out full path to copy back, kept getting don't exist PS C:\Windows\system32> Remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_20.10240.16384.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName Its gone Now have to wait on 10586 update see what comes back and figure out what to do then. May want to start all over but that's a pain but I'm just that type, spend several days putting things back While I was there I looked at dir on that folder, wow another place they hiding things They have scattered these things all over the place. Hello 1. If you uninstall any package with any method, updates will not bring them back 2. Updates could add new packages when microsoft decide to, like recently with the modern package "DVD Player" 3. You could have several errors while trying to uninstall a package, a common one is "package/files unavailable" it happen when you already uninstalled the package with an other method Here is how to solve that : You just need to restore the package files to their original location from a backup or from the dvd Example from dvd : 1. Do all the manipulation as trustedinstaller or system... 2. Open D:\sources\install.wim with 7zip (you need an updated version) 3. Restore package files to their location like "C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy" 4. Uninstall (now you don't get the error anymore) 5. You could clean remained files...
