    Welcome to Windows Eight Forums BTW.
    Besides, it's ok to be a dipstick as long as you're not 2 quarts low.

    Windows 8.1

    Seriously it seems obvious . . but not. It came up the way, say, a search for "PC settings" comes up . . you'd expect those to come out of the search when no longer available . .and maybe they do with a proper uninstall. I uninstalled a lot of HP apps and bloatware and they didn't come up like that.

    I guess it was just a glitch.

    I'm totally fine with Win 8.1 by the way. I don't get the complaints. I tag my common apps in the task bar--like I did with 7. And anything not there I do a search for--just like I did with 7, only in a different place now. I don't feel the need for a start menu, as I didn't really browse it that much in 7--but I guess folks got attached to it. And I really like the new file explorer (especially the copy animations), and the task manager is much improved.

    It just seems faster to me than 7 ever did, and I use 7 still at work, and it feels more bloated by comparison.

    Too bad they're dropping it so soon (for Win 9). But once it gets tagged with a bad name, they can't shake it. I still have a laptop running Vista btw . . and I never really have an issue with it either. Besides--I keep all my important bits in the cloud. A complete reset every few years is worth it to revive a machine, and it's easier than ever (because of Skydrive/Google Drive) to set up a new or refreshed machine.

While using windows search, the apps don't appear in the search results even though all folders of the ProgramData folder are indexed. Could it be a problem with my newly installed antivirus (ESSET NOD 32) ? Please help me since it is very annoying having to scroll through the entire apps list.
Store: update notifications for uninstalled Apps? in Windows Updates & Activation
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?

Hi, I bought a new notebook and went into control panel, Programs, uninstall and uninstalled the online games. But when I go and show All Apps, they still show up. How do I remove them from there? If I right click on the icon of one of the games, it doesn't give me an option to delete it.
