Amazon execs are jerks!over a year ago
Just purchase a new computer, through Amazon. Thus far, I have been unable to "uninstall" the "Amazon 1button App" now matter what I try. In the "Uninstall or change a program" section, when I select "Amazon 1button App", the only options are "Change" or "Repair." "Uninstall" is not an option. That really, really makes me angry. No one should be allowed to place a irremovable program in a computer, which I purchased. I am so angry and frustrated about it, I may purchase new stand alone Windows program and reformat and install, just to remove the Amazon jerks app, a.k.a. "Amazon 1button App."
