HELP!

 

I recently did a Windows update and OneNote was reinstalled on my computer.  I do NOT want it and have been unsuccessful in every uninstall attempt. Each time I reboot the computer a big purple and white box pups up with software.  Please assist.  I'm all ears.

Hello Saw,

 

I tried uninstalling OneNote using PowerShell. I copied  Get-AppxPackage *onenote* | Remove-AppxPackage into the PowerShell box. I did a reboot and the software is still installed. What am I missing?

Hi, press the win + x keys together, windows power menu opens, select Powershell (admin) from the options, copy the below text, then right click anywhere in the powershell window and the cmd will append to the prompt, press enter, restart (must be restart, not shutdown) computer.

 

Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers *onenote* | Remove-AppxPackage

Hello Janae,

 

I followed your instructions and the software is still installed.  In all my years of dealing with computers I never had software so difficult to uninstall.  Maybe its me?  Perhaps there is another method?  Thx!

Do you have Office 2013?

Hello John,

 

Yes I have Office 2013 Home and Student version.  I looked at the instructions from your link and clicked the change link.  The control panel is only giving me the option to do a repair not add or remove programs.

I'm not sure why this is not available. Some people commented that it's not available if you have a click to run version of Office but that's not your case.

 

Edit: You are not alone. If Office was included with your computer that may be the reason you do not see the add/remove features.

Hello John,

 

Office was not included in my computer.  I purchased and installed the software at a later date. If I'm unable to remove the program is there away to disable the large purple and white box that pops up every time I reboot my computer?

 

It is beyond annoying and rather aggravating that MS doesn't care about what their customers want.  Who wants to see a large purple and white box pop every time they reboot? Very frustrating!

If you have the key for Office and the install media you could uninstall Office and reinstall using Custom and only selecting the components you wish. That's the only idea I have, sorry.

Hi AZrox,

 

Yes...I agree about that pop-up being annoying! Mine showed up with the 1709 Fall Creators Update. I also have Microsoft Office 2013 suite, OneNote is part of the suite. As I use Office 2013 on a daily basis, uninstalling the entire (paid for program) was not an option (which might apply to you as well.)This is how I got rid of the notification (pop-up and notification in the taskbar):

 

Open OneNote -> Click File -> Click Options -> Click Display -> Un-tick "Place OneNote icon in the notification area of the taskbar"

Let us know if this works for you!

Softeyes,  I followed your instructions and it worked :)  The OneNote box is no longer appearing at startup.  Thanks Softeyes and everyone else for your support. Problem resolved!
