Sure, but to Gene's point - you're not going to be installing crapware with Chocolatey - but the MS Store pre-loads your machine with a shit ton, and really, the only way to get rid of if all is using PowerShell.
I love the first post for info sake itself... I just don't see the need to mention Choco in the same thread - it serves an entirely different purpose - not to mention the fact that it isn't even loaded by default, so if it's there - YOU know it's there.
And again, you know how to install and uninstall applications with Chocolatey.
But you may not know (or want to know how to learn to use Microsoft's App Store) and maybe you prefer to use a shell to remove applications from add and remove.
While you know what you've installed with Choco, doesn't mean you know how to remove programs like in the OP which, again installed during the evening hours without me having installed it.
Yeah, except their main markets are like the US and Canada where Internet reliability is really low. It's like no one there has ever been on the Internet. Oh wait...
I'm sure this has been stated before, but don't conflate you're poor experiences with Internet Connectivity with everywhere across the US.
Granted many places have very crappy options but they still get places "online".
Don't conflate your good experience in one location with my sampling of thousands of sites across the US that we support and monitor all the time. The US has, and is well documented to be, some of the worst Internet in the developed world and certainly not on par with some of the undeveloped world.
Would something like crackmapexec do the trick? I've started playing around with it to validate that some of our security configs are actually doing what they're supposed to and it can be used to dump user lists from a lot of the native windows locations. Not sure that it would get everything that you're looking for but "hacking" tools might be something to consider in addition to the typical bevy of PS and Windows commands.
