The list in FRST's Addition.txt file is pretty complete:

  • Get FRST from http://www.bleepingc...very-scan-tool/You need to download the appropriate tool for your PC.  If you don't know if you have a 32 or 64 bit system get them both.  Only one will work and that's the right one.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Check the Addition.txt box
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.  
  • Please copy and paste log back here.
  • It will generate another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

 

Any program which does not show up in FRST's list is probably malware and we will be glad to help you remove it.

Note that with Win 10 there are now two different types of installed programs:  The traditional ones and the Apps.  The removal procedure for Apps is different and varies.  Some of them you can just right click on and Remove.  Others take a Powershell command:

If you had FRST do a SCAN you will see what programs are installed as well as what Apps you have.  You don't have to post the logs if you don't want to but if you need help interpreting them then I need to see them.

But isnt there an action I can do that will enable all programs to show up in Uninstall? Is this the only way to see all programs?

FRST has an option to unhide hidden installs and is the easiest way to see everything. 

 

I expect that most of the install programs live in the registry somewhere

When you ran your program did you right click and run as admin or just double click on it?

 

 

See if this helps:

Download OOSU10.exe:

https://www.oo-softw...com/en/shutup10

Download and Save it (You will get a popup while it's downloading.  You can X out of it)
then Right click and Run As Admin.
Allow it to make a System Restore Point.
Click on Actions then on Apply Recommended Settings.

Close the program and reboot.

After each major update it's wise to rerun the program and Revert the changes.

Also:

Search for

task scheduler

hit Enter

Click on the arrow in front of Task Scheduler Library then

Click on the arrow in front of Microsoft

Click on the arrow in front of Windows

Click on Application Experience.  In the next pane to the right, right click on each Task and Disable.  Should be three tasks.

Click on Customer Experience Improvement Program.  In the next pane to the right, right click on each Task and Disable.  Should be two tasks.

Google each one if you don't know what they are.  Then if you don't use them get rid of them.  I'd keep the StorePurchase App in case you want to buy something from MS.  Maybe the camera and DVR things too,  Skype if you ever use it.
