Motivation

Windows is useful and we all use it, but it comes with A LOT of things that we don't need, some among them invide our privacy completely, other simply serve no purpose becuase we don't use it. In this guide, I'll walk you through the steps to removing some of those annoying programs.

I'm currently not using windows for other than gaming, so I will update this list as needed. If you'd like me to include more, leave a comment below.
This is supposed to be a guideline, not every step is necessary to make a difference.

Installing your favorite programs

I don't recommend this option since you won't have the granular options of choosing what you want to install, however, for the lazy ones or the ones in a hurry, here it is, go to ninite and select the ones you want to install

OneDrive

With this shellcode you can get rid of Microsoft’s OneDrive plague. Which allows Windows (10) automatically store you private stuff and can be access by Microsoft staff for “juridical” reasons according to the privacy statement.
Paste this code below in into your favor text editor:

 @echo off
    cls
    set x86=”%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\OneDriveSetup.exe”
    set x64=”%SYSTEMROOT%\SysWOW64\OneDriveSetup.exe”
    echo Closing OneDrive process.
    echo.
    taskkill /f /im OneDrive.exe > NUL 2>&1
    ping 127.0.0.1 -n 5 > NUL 2>&1
    echo Uninstalling OneDrive.
    echo.
    if exist %x64% (
    %x64% /uninstall
    ) else (
    %x86% /uninstall
    )
    ping 127.0.0.1 -n 5 > NUL 2>&1
    echo Removing OneDrive leftovers.
    echo.
    rd “%USERPROFILE%\OneDrive” /Q /S > NUL 2>&1
    rd “C:\OneDriveTemp” /Q /S > NUL 2>&1
    rd “%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\OneDrive” /Q /S > NUL 2>&1
    rd “%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft OneDrive” /Q /S > NUL 2>&1
    echo Removeing OneDrive from the Explorer Side Panel.
    echo.
    REG DELETE “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}” /f > NUL 2>&1
    REG DELETE “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{018D5C66-4533-4307-9B53-224DE2ED1FE6}” /f > NUL 2>&1
    pause

Then, save the file as file.cmd ( example OneDriveSucks.cmd), then execute the .cmd file as administrator by right click on it. Reboot computer and your are 1% in progress of privacy in Windows 10.
