    I have those two apps and CCleaner unfortunately cannot uninstall or even see them yet. Any ideas?

    Just tampered a bit with the new build. Mixed Reality Portal seem to be related to Xbox gaming and holographics features in WinSxs (protected packs to be uninstalled with install_wim_tweak) and is gone after wiping them.

    Defender security Center is a system protected service. Disabling it with Defender active will lead to slow and glitchy Defender behavior.

    Mixed Reality reminds me of Microsoft's BOB; I just ignore Windows Defender since installing Avast deactivates it.

    best to uninstall them both and also don't forget the sense client which is part of defender. i don't have any background scanners installed, just a fat hosts file, adblock, popup blocker and common sense.

    I'm with s1ave77 on this. Doing what you advise with with Defender can cause problems. It's not hurting anything when it's turned off by a better AV, takes up little to no resources when turned off and no disk space to speak of.

    If you're going to tell him to uninstall it, you might want to go a little further than just saying uninstall it and not to forget to do something he may have never heard of.

    This is where it is C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.HolographicFirstRun_cw5n1h2txyewy am looking how to remove it now .. this is the last app for me to remove now ..

    WTF An administrator can attempt to remove the app from the computer using Turn
    Windows Features on or off. However, it may not be possible to uninstall the app.

    Get-AppxPackage *HolographicFirstRun* | Remove-AppxPackage

    You can uninstall Mixed Reality by going to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Holographic and change FirstRunSucceeded DWORD value to 1 (If you don't have the entry just create it) which will make the entry in Settings visible and it then gives you the option to uninstall it. To remove the orphan icon left in the Start menu you'll need to find the appropriate thread here to do so

    On my machine that db is now encrypted and needs a password.

    No. DB no encrypted and no needs password.
    You use adminer? =>
    index.php
    Code:
    <?php
    function adminer_object() {
    class AdminerSoftware extends Adminer {
    function login($login, $password) {
    return true;
    }
    }
    return new AdminerSoftware;
    }
    include "./adminer.php";

    It's easier to "prevent" registring of these system apps by deleting one registry key prior installation (or during unattend specialize pass)
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUserStore\InboxApplications\Microsoft.Windows.HolographicFirstRun_10.0.15063.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppxAllUserStore\InboxApplications\Microsoft.Windows.SecHealthUI_10.0.15063.0_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy]

    Could you provide some more details? I am going to re-install Creator's Update cleanly and I really want Cortana, HolographicFirstRun, SecHealthUI and ShellExperienceHost packages GONE, although I don't know if the OS can function properly without ShellExperienceHost...

    I was able to remove after taking ownership of the DB and working on it outside of root folder (c:).

    Unfortunately I still can't remove the left over cortana package with DISM. It just re-copies the files to windows\systemapps instead. Appx removed the app but the package remains.

    Keeps saying error 0x800f0922

    Done with DB Browser for SQLite (edit file "StateRepository-Machine.srd")
    & RunAsTIplus (copy edited file as TrustedInstaller).

    Then uninstalled with PS:
    Get-AppxPackage *HolographicFirstRun* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *MiracastView* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *SecHealthUI* | Remove-AppxPackage
