Must get rid of extra apps, does ACER supply a removal tool? Keeps comming back...

So we just picked up three Travelmate P6 laptops, they are a bit polluted with "value added software"
No big deal, go to add/remove and dump them.  OK, they come back...  Some hidden thing is reinstalling amazon.com, linkedin, evernote - etc etc

So does ACER supply a utility to clean out this junk? 

Do I have to waste my time format/reload windows?   I have to get these deployed into the field soon and dont have the time to do a full wipe and load :(

    You may be uninstalling for just the current user instead of the public user. The ones you list are all just placeholders unless they are opened. When they are opened they are installed via the Windows Store. Desktop items reside in the Public user, I believe.
