    remove apps icons of uninstalled applications

    I uninstalled google talk from control panel (uninstall a program) however I can still see Google Talk application group (with all icons) in the All apps screen. I also checked C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs but couldn't find leftovers there.

    Does anyone know how to manually remove gtalk icons from Apps desktop. Thanks.

    Use "Smart Uninstaller" in Yamicsoft Windows 8 Manager. It deleted the program, then it looks for leftovers and gives you the opportunity to choose which ones to delete. Sometimes, Google apps include needed links and files to IE, so you just have to beowse the results and uncheck all those are are not "Google" That's the only program that does this, all other ones, only choose what went with the program. It's cos Google merges into IE with toolbars and other cack.

Store: update notifications for uninstalled Apps?
For the last month or so, Windows Store now reports available updates for applications I have uninstalled, like Sports and Finance. This did not happen in the past. Does the same happen for you, too? Is it a problem, or a devious and annoying way to trick us into reinstalling these Windows 8 apps?
