    I made the mistake of installing Weather Home app on my S7 edge and when I go to uninstall it, the uninstall button is grayed out and I can't uninstall it.

    Additionally, a brand new bunch of bloatware apps (News, Market, Videos, Personalize, Games) invaded my phone and I can't find any way to get rid of them. They don't show up in Settings->Apps and when I hold them down, all I get is a menu with edit, widgets and app info options. How do I get rid of this crap and how can I prevent further invasions like it.

    Whoops, I just solved my own problem. All of the unwanted apps showed up with Weather Home. I was able to uninstall Weather Home by holding down the icon and clicking on app info. That's where I found the uninstall option. When I uninstalled it, all the bloatware apps disappeared with it and my s7 edge (which I dearly love) is back to normal.
