    Exclamation Windows 8.1 removing SkyDrive,Photos and camera

    Hello,

    testing out Windows 8.1 Professional and trying to remove the built in apps. Have managed to remove them all apart from SkyDrive, Photos and the camera app. This is the powershell script I use
    Code:
    $AppsList = "Microsoft.WindowsScan",
                "Microsoft.WindowsCalculator",
                "Microsoft.Reader",
                "Microsoft.BingTravel",
                "Microsoft.BingHealthAndFitness",
                "Microsoft.BingMaps",
                "Microsoft.BingFoodAndDrink",
                "Microsoft.BingNews",
                "microsoft.BingSports",
                "Microsoft.HelpAndTips",
    	    "Microsoft.XboxLIVEGames",
                "Microsoft.ZuneMusic",
                "Microsoft.ZuneVideo",
    	    "Microsoft.BingWeather",
                "Microsoft.BingFinance",
    	    "Microsoft.WindowsReadingList",
                "Microsoft.SkypeApp",
                "Microsoft.WindowsAlarms",
                "Microsoft.MoCamera",
                "microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps",
                "microsoft.windowsphotos",
                            
    $AppsList | ForEach { Get-AppxPackage -Name $_ } | ForEach { Remove-AppxPackage $_; Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online -PackageName $_ }
    Any ideas on how to remove them would be great.

    Thank you,
    Will

    Just tried sysprepping a Windows 8.1 laptop and it re installs the apps once complete. Is there a different way to remove these pointless apps from domain systems?

    Thank you,
    William
