4) Get Windows clean, without useless apps
We have restored the operating system with the system image provided by the notebook manufacturer and we end up with all the default apps and advertising apps again?
Before despairing we invite you to restore windows again using cloud download this time: with this item we will download a clean image of Windows 11 or Windows 10 and, during the recovery, the advertising apps and useless apps added by the manufacturer will also be deleted, thus obtaining a much faster and more usable Windows experience.

All applicationsincluding system ones that come pre-installed in Windows 10 and in Windows 11, can be uninstall from the settings, from the Start menu or using specific apps for cleaning useless apps.
If the apps appear again after a Windows restore the system image used for the restore is not good since it carries around a lot of bloatware: might as well restore again with a clean imagewithout any unwanted apps (we will only find the default apps decided by Microsoft).
