Home » News » Windows 10 May Update still installs bloatware and pointless services

Many Windows 10 users reported encountering a specific inconvenience after downloading Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

Apparently, Windows version 1903 installs back deleted bloatware and enables back certain unnecessary Windows Services.

The added bloatware and enabled services become annoying, as they slow down the computer.

Deleting bloatware and disabling the services that are not needed is an easy, but rather boring task.

If you’re wondering what to uninstall and disable in order to make your computer run smoothly, we made a list that you should follow.

Steps to uninstall bloatware in Windows 10 v1903

  1. Uninstall Windows bloatware
  2. Disable unnecessary Windows Services

1. Uninstall Windows bloatware

Bloatware takes up storage space, uses up system memory and some apps could even cause system infections.

Getting rid of apps that you don’t use requires you to access the Windows Settings, then go to Update & Security > Recovery > Learn how to start fresh with a clean installation of Windows. Afterwards, follow the on-screen instructions.

Unnecessary apps that we recommend that you uninstall are: 3D Viewer, Calendar, Candy Crush Saga, Disney Magic Kingdoms, Groove Music, Mail, Movies & TV, Paint 3D, Snip & Sketch, Sticky Notes, Voice Recorder.

If you realize that you need some of the deleted apps afterwards, don’t worry. You can install them back from the Microsoft Store.

2. Disable unnecessary Windows Services

Windows Services usually slow down your computer using memory resources. Some of the services are not needed for the proper running of the system, therefore they should not be active.

In order to disable services, you need to access the Services tab through the Run box. Type service.msc in the Run box and hit Enter.

Next you need to find the pointless services that your system runs, double click on them and change the Startup type to Disabled or to Manual.

We found that the following services don’t have much use and you should disable them or set to manual: AdobeLM Service, Application Management – manual, Cryptographic Services – manual, Distributed Transaction Service – manual, Error Reporting Service, Help and Support, IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service – manual, Indexing Service, InstallDriver Table Manager, IPSEC Services – manual, MS Software Shadow Copy Provider – manual, NT LM Security Support Provider, Portable Media Serial Number Service – manual, Remote Procedure Call Locator – manual, Remote Registry, Routing and Remote Access – manual, Security Accounts Manager, Security Center, Smart Card, Telnet – manual, Universal Plug and Play Device Host – manual, User Privilege Service – manual.

Hopefully, this quick guide helped you to get rid of unwanted apps and services. If you liked this article, leave a comment in the comment section.
