    Windows 8

    Please Help!


    I have a question about my Windows 8 computer.

    Here is the problem:

    Let me give you an example of what I am going through.

    I download a program such as Audacity.
    I uninstall it from my computer.
    The program is gone.
    The problem is that after uninstalling, the program is still in my Metro Start Screen!
    Even if I unpin from start, the program is still under the "All apps" category.
    I am using a regular laptop running Windows 8.
    I just want to know how I can remove these programs from the all apps section.

    Please help.
    I believe some of these programs were causing me some problems.

    Hoping to see some answers.
