It took me two hours to remove all that "helper" crap, thanks Microsoft.
I'm in a different camp... nobody twisted arms (or sneaked in like a thief) to make you click and install those MS features. They, at least, were up front in what they do. Malware guys (and gals) are a different breed... there's no "offer/acceptance" and therein is the difference.
Kudos MS. Meanwhile raspberries for taking so long to "git 'er done".
