    I got nonsense like MSN News, Netflix, Candy Crush automatically installed.
    Is there a way to prevent them from being installed?
    I'm using Windows 10 Pro 1607.

    Prior to the anniversary update, I uninstalled several apps I had no use for. But, as forewarned, the AU put back most if not all of them. I uninstalled them again and they haven't come back ... yet. Microsoft apparently has a core set of apps they want you to have and will push them at every opportunity.
