WIn10 apps reinstalling when a domain user logs in after uninstalling it from local admin account

Hello all, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend
Is anyone else running into this issue with a domain joined Win10 machine in which the windows apps are removed via a power shell script on the local admin account but as soon as a domain user logs in, it re-installs the apps.
I decided to test this theory by making some test local machine user accounts and deleted the apps from the admin account. once I signed in to the local machine user accounts, the apps were gone. But as soon as I sign in with a domain account, the apps reinstall on the machine which is causing a major headache.
I have read on the Microsoft forums that one can disable the win10 apps via a GPO edit so we are looking into that to see if that solves the issue.
one thing I have noticed that when I try to run the Power Shell script to remove the apps as an administrator, it only deals with the apps on the local machine admin account and not the domain user account.
If anyone has any suggestion or ideas, Ill be more than happy to try them out!
