    Is there any way to install/upgrade to 10 Pro without all the crapware preinstalled? I mean, does a business end user really need Store, XBox, mail, calendar, Solitaire, etc, etc......??? I end up spending 15-20 minutes each computer to remove all that crap, and customizing the start menu to hid much of the uninstallable garbage. Then I 've actually seen where updates reinstall them!

    I'm hesitant to start pushing 10 to our corporate clients who are still using, and are very comfortable, with 7 Pro.

    Yes, I've been using 10 since before it was release, but see no sense in having all this extra baggage installed.

    Don't quote me because I haven't seen such a thing firsthand nor do I work in IT. (or in any career yet)

    But I'm pretty sure a company could modify an install and deploy that to many computers?

    That's very likely, but I'm talking about the 2-10 PC size companies. Many don't even have a server. Even the Dell and HP OEM loads are full of unnecessary junk.

    It will remove those 41 applications listed, you just remove the one that you don't need or just execute them all in PowerShell console Run as Administrator.

    Hope that helps.

    Most organizations in the corporate world get the enterprise license and create images to install on the machines. The Enterprise version has more control on turning features on and off.
