Purchased refurbished computer and updated to Windows 10. Downloaded Speccy to see what was installed and I need to know how to get rid of numerous items such as .NET Frameworks and others. I lose administrative function if I make too many changes. Would you kindly direct me on proper processes to get started. Other than Speccy, what downloads do you recommend to get started? Thank you.

A word of Caution ::

 

Be SURE you have a Restore Point available for when things go wrong.

 

Restore from a system restore point
  1. Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.
  2. Search Control Panel for Recovery.
  3. Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.
  4. Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select Next > Finish.

Better Still....if you have an external drive/usb....do a complete back up to that drive.

 

or you may just be prepared to reinstall win 10.

 

 

I lose administrative function if I make too many changes.  Which leaves me wondering what the reason is for the changes in the first place ...??

It does not show any of the items I want to remove. I know how to remove simple programs, this is far beyond simple. How do I turn off a server and related connections? I make changes in Services and they change back.

why not just format the drive and start fresh if there is too much issues with the PC?

Services simply returning is a fact in windows 10.

 

What exactly is the problem.....what are you trying to achieve ?

 

Do you have a problem with windows spying ?....is that what you are trying to turn off ?

Just reinstall Windows 10 using express settings, and MS Account, and you will be just fine. This is what I do, and I don't have any issues.

Why do you want to get rid of .NET Frameworks?

What are some of the others you want to get rid?

How do I turn off a server and related connections? I make changes in Services and they change back.


What server?

Which services do you make changes to that "change back"?

I do not think that the original poster understands the very concept of how operating systems work.   There are lots and lots of processes that are there, and come back if you kill them, because they are essential for the OS to do what it does.

 

The idea of removing the .NET framework on a modern Windows platform boggles the mind.
