Question I can't remove Gaming Services ?


Jan 18, 2017
First I noticed that I can't install a certain game from either the Windows Store nor Xbox (the latter spitting out 0x000000001.) Then I deleted the GamingServices and GamingServicesNet registry keys as people instructed and reinstalled Gaming Services. Still doesn't work.
The problem now is that if I try to remove Gaming Services via get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers it'll just spit out:

remove-AppxPackage : Removal failed. Please contact your software vendor.
Deployment Remove operation with target volume C: on Package Microsoft.GamingServices_2.53.17002.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
from: failed with error 0x80070002. See for help diagnosing app
deployment issues.

I restarted and the 2 registry keys have not reappeared. I also have reinstalled the Xbox and Xbox Console Companion app, along with a windows reset to no success. What should I do?
