About

I know there are a thousand ways to uninstall modern Windows 10 apps. Here is the One Thousand and One with Bloatbox! This was intended as a small extension for my app Privatezilla to uninstall specific apps. Since I didn't want to bloat Privatezilla unnecessarily (those who know me know that I am a friend of small apps and lean code), I have now made this available as a standalone app.

This code is based on parts of this nice project from ConditionalException. Some inspiration has also flowed from this ugly guy AppManager by Microsoft but on Windows Forms 😏

Download

Community package

The community package for Bloatbox adds support for several advanced scripting features based upon PowerShell, e.g.

  • Reinstall of all built-in apps
  • Removal of specific pre-installed apps
  • Uninstall of OneDrive
  • Unpinning Startmenu tiles
  • Disable of Windows Defender (NOT recommended! I can highly recommend using Windows Defender on consumer versions of Windows 10)
  • Blocking telemetry via firewall and host files. Rules are provided by crazy-max/WindowsSpyBlocker

Check also the Marketplace for new script files

Script files provided for Privatezilla or my older app SharpApp are fully compatible with Bloatbox. You will find some on my site here

All scripts included to the latest package can be viewed here

How-to Install

  • Download the latest bloatbox_pkg.zip file.
