Windows 10 Anniversary Update reinstalls bundled apps you've previously removed

Windows 10 has a history of interfering with user choice when it comes to software. The operating system was found to be uninstalling some user programs without permission shortly after the November Update arrived, a problem that persisted for some time.

Is it a mistake on Microsoft’s behalf, or is the company, once again, running roughshod over user choice?

This is the third in a series of articles about the manifold problems with Windows 10 Redstone 1 (Anniversary) Update -- version 1607, build 14393.51 or .67 -- the Aug. 2 patch that's slowly rolling out to Win10 systems
