I just bought a new Windows 10 Laptop for and am trying to get rid of all the excess bloatware that it comes with and found a "decrapify" script on Spiceworks. While this works wonderfully for my local account, it does absolutely nothing on my domain user account. Attempts to manually delete the apps on the local account have also failed with no error message whatsoever, I type the command to remove the app, hit enter, powershell shows a new line and the app still exists.


I have tried doing things like running directly from a domain admin account with -allusers, running from a local admin account with -allusers and nothing has worked so far.  Is this just a problem with domain accounts, or is there anything I can do to fix it?


Thanks in advance!


EDIT: It seems the domain admin's account no longer has these apps after running the script, but the user account does. wtf.
