    How do I delete the bloatware in the winsxs folder

    It won't let me delete anything. I need to know how to delete the multiple GigaBytes of bloatware. The folder is 12.2 GB. It's on my vista

    Did you try to delete from Add/Remove programs?
    Did you try to delete this folder manually?
    Try to delete with "unlocker".
