It didn't remove Windows Security's shortcut from the Start Menu.nuhi
Instead of opening a new thread, I figured I'd tell you about something;
When doing a live removal of applications, they tend to stick around in the start menu, reboot doesn't fix it. It also leaves ghost buttons in Taskbar for removed applications (Edge/Store is the two that are Pinned to Taskbar at the start). This doesn't effect Offline removals, since they are not cached.
A fix for the start menu things are, I'm not sure how you'd incorporate this into the program is to go to "%LocalAppdata%\Packages" and locate Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_XXXX or Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_XXXX, and go into the folder TempState and delete the content, then just restart the "StartMenuExperienceHost.exe" or "ShellExperienceHost.exe" process. I'm just guessing, but I think the difference in what the process is called and the place the files you need to delete is located depends on the Windows version, as that's the difference between my Daily Driver and my VM. You'd have to test it for yourself.
Well this was messy, I hope you understand it though. It's not game breaking, but might be annoying to fix for people, as they can't just reboot to fix this (at least hasn't worked for me).
After installing a CU via WU and restarting Windows 10 (because WU asked me to) Windows Security returns even though I removed it with NTLite (this also happens if I integrate a previous CU with NTLite and install a new one via WU). I used NTLite's Remove Reinstalls feature afterwards and I still have Windows Security. When I click on it even before using the Remove Reinstalls feature the Virus & threat protection doesn't show up. Even after using the Remove Reinstalls feature I can still open Windows Security and its shortcut shows up on the Start Menu as well as its icon on the taskbar. I noticed Windows Security had returned because after opening the Start Menu a new shortcut showed up with a "new" tag next to the name as well as a new icon showed up on the taskbar. How can I know if more apps and components have returned besides Windows Security? Even though no more new shortcuts show up on the Start Menu as well as new icons on the taskbar it doesn't mean more apps and components haven't return
